MMMC header

Launched 2/22/21 (first day of spring semester) | Report for California Jump$tart Board Meeting 3/10/21

Why the MMMC?

Research has shown that students with perceived financial burdens are significantly more likely to reduce their course load and/or drop out of college. Our goal is to help students stay in college and move towards their career goals. We are doing this by providing resources to help students manage their money and also connect them to additional Mt. SAC support resources.

Where is the MMMC?

We are in Canvas (our online instructional platform) while the college is virtual

  • Students can now add themselves into the MMMC Hub so that they have us on their dashboard to access our services more easily: 60 added the MMMC hub last week since we got this set up
  • We are on Instagram: and have 55 following us
  • We plan to be open year round when classes are in session to support our students
  • We hope to be physically back on campus for the fall semester.
