New Student Registration Orientation
Are you a brand new student to Santa Ana College? If yes, then this orientation is for you! The registration orientations are done in small groups (up to 15 students) and are led by a Counselor. During the first 30 minutes students will be provided with an overview of Santa Ana College, the English and Math placement process, cost, financial aid information, and registration process. Students will have the opportunity to briefly meet one-on-one with a Counselor for academic advisement and to develop a two-semester abbreviated education plan.
