High School Students in Career Advanced Placement Program (CAP)
CAP form and for K-12 students. A significant portion of the Rancho Santiago Community College District curriculum is available to supplement programs of high school students recommended by their counselors.  Contact your high school counseling office for details.  Placement tests for Math and English are required! CAP forms need the signatures of the Principal and parent. Also, a dean's signature is required for each course. Click here for a list of Division Deans. 

Effective Summer 2009, CAP students with a principal's recommendation, parent's  and dean's signatures can register online. Submit a copy of the approved CAP Forms to the Admissions Office prior to your registration date.  Due to a new state law CAP students who wish to take classes at a community college must be assigned a low enrollment priority so as not to displace regularly admitted students.

New Student

New students receive appointments to register on a first-come, first-served basis. All new students to SAC are encouraged to complete matriculation services (testing, orientation, and advisement).  Upon completing testing, students will be given an appointment to attend an orientation and advisement session with a counselor.  Students will receive their test results and their appointment to register after completing orientation and advisement.  See the Placement Testing Schedule for further information.
