Application Process

MORE SPECIFIC APPLICATION DETAILS WILL BE POSTED SOON!
OUR APPLICATION PROCESS HAS BEEN CLOSED SINCE 2012. AS A RESULT, WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH SPECIFIC INFORMATION AS TO THE NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS WE MAY RECEIVE WHEN THE PROCESS IS RE-OPENED IN JUNE 2014.

Effective 10/8/2013 the new process will be as follows:

Step 1: Apply to Santa Ana College to obtain a student ID#.          
Please note: Application and Transcripts will not be evaluated without a student ID number.  

Step 2: Submit application and official transcripts in one packet to the OTA Department during the appropriate filing period. All college/university transcripts must be official in a sealed envelope.

DO NOT send your transcripts directly to Admissions & Records and
DO NOT submit unofficial transcripts in your packet.


Mail Completed Application and Official Transcripts to:

Santa Ana College
Attn: OTA Department
1530 W. 17th Street
Santa Ana, CA 92706

​**Applicants must have completed all prerequisite classes and the grades must be posted to their transcript before submitting an application**

Step 3: Official High School transcript must be on file at the Admissions Office if you DO NOT have an associate's or bachelor's degree from an accredited United States institution. 

Graduates from foreign countries (without a US degree) must have transcripts officially evaluated stating the equivalent of US senior high school graduation.

Step 4Completion of the Level III Math test is required of all applicants except those that have a bachelor's degree OR have completed Intermediate Algebra, or higher, with a grade of "C" or better.
 
If you have completed a math course to satisfy this requirement, please make sure that you provide the official transcript in your packet that demonstrates this.
 
NOTE: It is the students responsibility to maintain a current email address with the OTA office as this is our primary method of contact with potential students. The OTA program will not make multiple attempts to reach potential students due to inaccurate contact information being on file. 
A​pplica​tion Period:
June 16 -September 15, 2014

Application Submissions & Acceptance: All potential students who demonstrate successful completion of the prerequisite courses will have their application entered into an unbiased random selection process (which is like a lottery) that will determine their position to start the program.

Applications will not be accepted on a first come, first served basis. AND information such as g.p.a., work experience, or volunteer hours will not be taken into account when applications are submitted.
