Submitting an Application

1. Complete the International Student Application

NOTE: Students transferring from another school within the United States must also include these additional documents with their application:

  • Transfer Eligibility Form
  • Most recent I-20
  • Current I-94
  • Academic transcripts from high school and ALL college/universities attended

2. Submit your completed application and required documents

Choose one of three ways:

  • By mail:

ATTN: International Admissions
International Student Office
8045 E Chapman Ave
Orange, CA 92869

  • In-person: International Student Office - Room A-203

3. Allow 2-5 business days for processing your application

  • Our processing time begins once all required documents are submitted.
  • Be sure to include a current email address in case we need to follow-up on your application.
  • Once admitted, you will be issued an acceptance letter and a Form I-20.
    • Do NOT request for your current school to release your SEVIS record until you receive an acceptance letter from Santiago Canyon College.
  • You may pick up your admission documents one of two ways:
    • Mail: Create an E-Ship Global account and pay for express shipping. With this service, you will receive your documents within 3-5 business days. This is required for all non-U.S. addresses.
    • In-Person: Students may also obtain their original admission documents in A-203 during office hours.
      • All original admission documents must be provided directly to the student. Only the student can provide authorization to release documents to a third-party. Click here for authorization release form.
