Registration process is completed online, just as in class registration. Mt. SAC uses Moodle Rooms now, instead of Blackboard. Workload is the same as in class. However, online courses offer the flexibility in tailoring study around career and children. Plus, save money on gas and the headaches and time of commuting. The professor/student relationship is great. For the online courses I have taken, the professors were very receptive and got back to me within 24 hours. Peer-to-peer interaction is online via threaded posts.We can ask each other questions, fill in each others' blanks. Its awesome!

I really love going to Mt. Sac because it's affordable,it's close to home and its rated one of the top community colleges in California. It is hard to find parking though, so make sure to get to campus about an hour before your class starts so you don't feel rushed and panicked to find parking and to make it to class on time. The teachers are really helpful. All the teachers have really easy ways to contact them and they even have office hours! I would highly recommend going to ratemyprofessor.com to rate a professor to pick a professor when getting classes-i's really helpful! all the ratings and critics are from past students.

Teaching Program – Mt. Sac offers a Teacher Preparation program for students interested in becoming a teacher. I enrolled in this program my second semester and am extremely grateful that my school offers this program. Every semester the Teacher Preparation Institute lends out textbooks and offers priority registration for a variety of classes in order to secure your seat. The Director of the program was my Biology teacher, and she is one of the best professors I've ever met. In addition to the free textbooks, the Teacher Prep also offers a quiet study area with resources such as a computer, printer and hand-outs. Most importantly, they offer counselors specialized in counseling students who desire a career in Education. Free workshops are offered to help students with the required tests needed for teaching credentials, and they even reimburse the test fee (about $70)when you pass. I highly recommend any students who want to enter the field of education to inquire more about the Teacher Prep!
