About Saddleback College

President’s Message


Welcome to Saddleback College


It is an exciting time to be at Saddleback College!  As we begin our 50th year of educating students in south Orange County, we renew our commitment to student success, and we are positioned to make an even greater impact on this region.  

Whether your plans include transferring to a four-year college or university, training for a career, or acquiring new skills, attending Saddleback is a smart choice.  Saddleback College ranks in the top 10 among all community colleges in transfers to the University of California and in the top 20 in transfers to the California State University.  Thousands more of our students move directly into skilled positions within trades and industries in southern California.  We also rank 2nd among the 114 community colleges in California, in offering online programs.

Our faculty are leaders in their fields and constantly seek innovative ways to create learning environments that are both challenging and engaging for students.  Throughout our campus, you will find highly skilled staff who are able to address financial aid questions, career pathways and academic tutoring.

On behalf of all of our faculty and staff, it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to Saddleback College.  You have made a wise decision in joining one of California’s most recognized and successful colleges. 

Saddleback’s team is your partner as you enter your future!
