I'm about to finish my first year at SAC, and it has been an amazing experience. The school has so many opportunities that people don't look for. I've been able to visit 4 UC's up north and am planning on taking a class at UCI this summer. I recommend for people who want to go here to sign up for EOPS and U-Link. The Transfer Center is there to be used, so make to use your resources. FYI I'm a 1st generation undocumented student majoring in Linguistics and Psychology!

Diversity and endless opportunities is the best way I can describe the benefits from my experience at Santa Ana College. Throughout my time here, I have established many connections with students and professors. Because of this, I have had many job opportunities within my legal profession and have always had people whom I can discuss certain class topics that assist me in obtaining better grades. The biggest advantage for me is that many night and online classes are offered. This helps me a lot because I am a full time employee and have been able to be a full-time student as well. The flexibility has allowed me to better schedule my study/homework sessions. All the resources made available to students gives me or anyone in attendance no excuse of failing and not transferring. Due to what I mentioned above, I will be obtaining my Associates Degree in Psychology this June and will be transferring to Cal State Fullerton.
It is a great school! After 28 years, I am enrolled in classes. SAC has walked me through to the process to succeed. It is amazing to feel confident knowing that SAC has sincere staff to help in any aspect needed, when needed.
