Student Orientation is a comprehensive advising, registration and
orientation program that is intended to ensure the smooth transition of first
time freshmen and transfer students to Santa Ana College. Participation affords
you an opportunity for EARLIER REGISTRATION. However, you must be formally
ADMITTED to college in order to attend.
The program begins with check-in at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at
approximately 5:00 p.m. each day. Participation is limited to students only.
Attendance at one of the Orientation Sessions is mandatory.
Academic counselors conduct group-advising sessions that will
focus on general education, major requirements, testing, the selection of
appropriate classes and registration. Students also have the opportunity to
meet individually with a counselor for major advising. They will also be
introduced to support services and resources that are available on campus, meet
other students, staff & faculty, and gain a general orientation to campus
