Who is a Returning Student?
Returning students are those who have previously attended Santiago Canyon College and/or Santa Ana College but have missed one (1) or more primary semester(s) (Fall or Spring). You are considered a returning student regardless of whether you skipped one semester or several years. When returning students miss one semester, they must
reapply online. Computers are available in the Admissions & Records Lobby.
To successfully return to our college as a returning student, follow these steps:
STEP 1 – APPLY FOR ADMISSION ONLINE
STEP 2 – PLACEMENT TESTING
· Returning students may need to take/retake the placement tests if:
