CAREER ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM (CAP)
High School Career Advanced Placement Student (CAP) is registering
for a college class. This is a limited program geared toward
educational enrichment not remediation.
Student must obtain signatures of parent and school principal.
Student must obtain college approval from the Division Dean or designee. Final approval rests with Santa Ana College. Refer to http://www.sac.edu/Admissions
and Records page to locate the appropriate Division and Dean’s contact information.
A completed ‘Consent to Treat a Minor’ form is required along with the Career Advanced Placement form. Return both forms to the Admissions Office (S-101). If necessary, the Admissions Office will advise the student to complete the Admissions Application and provide registration instructions.
Students who plan to take English or Math courses need to meet with a Counselor to review high school transcripts for appropriate course recommendation. For additional information and to find out about drop-in counseling services, contact the Assessment Center at (714) 564-6148 .
Students currently enrolled in grades K-8 are required to pay all college fees. The Enrollment Fee will be waived for students currently enrolled in grades 9-12 who are enrolled in 11 units or less. If the student enrolls in 12 units or more during fall and spring semesters, the student will be charged the current enrollment fee for all units. Students must also pay all other college fees.
High School students will not be charged enrollment fees if enrolling in 11 units or less. If the student enrolls in 12 units or more during fall and spring semesters, the student will be charged the current enrollment fee for all units. Further, during intersession and summer sessions, if the student enrolls in 6 units or more, the student will be charged for all units enrolled.
RSCCD shall charge a tuition fee to nonresident students who hold an F1 or F2 visa. F1/F2 students are not exempt.
A completed Consent for Treatment of a Minor form is required to be on file in the Admissions Office.
The parent’s signature grants permission for their son/daughter to enroll in college courses at Santa Ana College. The parent acknowledges that Santa Ana College is an adult environment and assumes responsibility for their young student’s conduct while on campus. Additionally, in compliance with federal privacy law, the parent will need their student’s written permission to gain access to any non-directory information.
CAP students will be receiving college credit for this class whether
or not the units are used toward high school graduation. This means
a college transcript is generated listing the class or classes and the
grades earned. This establishes a permanent record with the college.
Grades recorded for these classes are permanent and create a college
transcript. The transcript information is confidential and is only
accessible by the student. All college information is confidential and
not accessible to parents or guardians.
CAP students are required to attend class until the end of the
semester unless the student decides to drop the class online prior to
the deadline identified in the schedule of classes. The drop deadline
is set when 75% of the course has been completed. The student will
receive a “W” when the student drops after the first two weeks of
a full semester or after the first week of the summer session. Please
read class section details listed in Web Advisor (Online Records) for
important refund and drop deadlines.
CAP students must attend all classes. Material covered in college
courses is at a faster pace than high school classes. Expect to
spend twice as much time outside of class as in class completing
assignments and homework.
Santa Ana College maintains open campuses. Students function
under Standards of Student Conduct (Board Policy 5201), and there
is an expectation that adult behavior will be displayed by students
on campus. Academic honesty is a requirement, and sanctions are
identified in course overviews, which are distributed by faculty on the
first day of class. Students are responsible for their own transportation
and materials on campus.
CAP students by law do not have priority registration. Under the
California Code of Regulations, title 5, section 58108 “a district may
establish a priority registration system which would accord adult
students higher registration priority.’
