High school seniors who plan to attend SCC for the upcoming fall semester
The Career Advanced Placement (CAP) program is designed for high school students. A portion of the Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD) curriculum is available to supplement programs for high school students recommended by their principal/counselor. Contact your high school Counseling Office for details.
Students in the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades of high school may be admitted as special part-time or full-time students to Santiago Canyon College. SCC full-time status is 6 units for Summer session and 12 units for Fall/Spring semester. High school students who would benefit from advanced scholastic work may enroll in classes with the signed consent of the high school principal/counselor, a parent,
and the appropriate Santiago Canyon College Division Dean. All signatures are recorded on the
Career Advanced Placement (CAP) form.
SB 338 provides the District with the authority to restrict admission and enrollment in any session based on age, grade-level of completion, or assessment and placement procedures in conformance with Matriculation regulations.
