The following revision has been made to the Health Fee:

Health fee policy for Spring 2019 and future semesters:  All students enrolled in an on-campus or online course at Saddleback College are required to pay the health fee. Students enrolled in only off-campus courses are exempt from paying the health fee, but can “opt-in” to pay the  fee if the student is interested in accessing the Health Center services. This fee is currently $20 for the fall and spring semesters and $17 for the summer semester.  Students who enroll in both Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College are required to pay both colleges’ health fees.  This fee entitles students to a variety of health services.  Please note that this is not a personal health insurance policy.  Health fees are subject to change during the academic year.

State law provides the following exemptions from the health fee:

1.  Students who depend exclusively upon prayer for healing in accordance with the teachings of a bona fide religious sect, denomination, or organization.

2.  Students who are attending a community college under an approved apprenticeship-training program.

Students must submit proof for these exemptions at the time they register.


The following revision has been made regarding Veterans Administration (VA) Education Benefits

The Veterans Office provides assistance to students by completing the paperwork required for VA education benefits.  Students who qualify for VA education benefits are encouraged to take advantage of their entitlement.  In addition to providing education benefits to veterans, this office assists veterans’ spouses and veterans’ children who apply for VA education benefits to which they are entitled.

1.  All students using VA education benefits are entitled to priority enrollment as long as they maintain satisfactory academic progress.

2.  Colleges are required by VA to evaluate all VA students’ previous education and training.  Records of previous education and training are maintained in each VA student’s file.  All previous education and training for which credit is granted will be used in fulfillment of applicable course requirements and therefore shorten the training period proportionately.  Students will be notified by their academic counselor of all prior education and training that is applicable to their programs.

3.  Effective August 1, 2018, VA requires that VA students’ monthly pay be based on the ZIP code of the location where they physically attend the majority of their classes.  This includes off-campus locations.  Please contact the Veterans Office for more information.  The Veterans Office is located in the Student Services Center (SSC) room 208.  The phone number is (949) 582-4870.  This is a college services office, not a branch of the federal government.

The Military Tuition Assistance (MTA) program for active duty military personnel is also processed in the Veterans Office.  MTA forms must be submitted to the Veterans Office, and must be signed by the active duty service member’s commanding officer and military base education officer.  This form is available at military bases’ education offices.
