Located in Orange, California, the location is one benefit of a Santiago Canyon education. Within minutes of numerous beaches and less than an hour from Los Angeles, the college itself, with its scenic campus, is also highly appealing.

Students at Santiago also benefit from the school’s accessibility via freeway and public transit lines, which stop right near the campus.

Just some examples of the diverse academic programs available at Santiago Canyon are Art, English, Electric Technology, Carpentry, Real Estate, Business, Television and Video Production, and Sign Language.

With guaranteed transfer to a number of California universities and colleges, students may also seamlessly enter a bachelor’s program after two years at Santiago.

Santiago’s support staff also help to make the student’s educational experience and journey as easy as possible, providing tutoring, counseling, career services, support for disabled students and scholarships to those who qualify.

The campus life presents a number of recreational and enrichment opportunities, including student organizations, performing arts and educational activities.

Detailed Ratings

I believe our school tries very hard to make sure that we get a good education at a community college. They are always refurbishing the buildings and adding new ones. They encourage studying and time for homework in every class. Every teacher I have had has personally cared. The financial parts are issues for me and have not really been addressed at my school. I have heard many complaints about not transferable units that counselors have told them to take.

Detailed Ratings

The staff is very helpful if not understaffed, my biggest tip is make an appointment early to sit down with a counselor and come up with an academic plan,then meet with a financial aid coumselor, and finally make sure you take your placement tests early and sign up for classses ASAP.
