The College Promise

When Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) graduates enroll at Santa Ana College (SAC) full-time, they will not have to worry about paying their tuition during their freshman year because of a commitment through a long-standing partnership to make the American dream possible through access to education to all children in Santa Ana.

All Santa Ana Unified School District graduates will also receive free tuition their freshman year when enrolled full-time and receive a laptop to support their studies. Upon completion of their education at Santa Ana College, through a program called Santa Ana Adelante, they can also receive guaranteed admission to University of California, Irvine or California State University, Fullerton (CSUF).

Santa Ana Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Stefanie Phillips explains more in the following video. Take a moment to learn more.
