Santa Ana Unified School District students will get FREE tuition at Santa Ana College (SAC) when they enroll full-time during their freshmen year thanks to a partnership with SAC, California State University, Fullerton, and University of California, Irvine.

In the fall of 2015, the Santa Ana Partnership’s leaders made history when UCI’s Chancellor Howard Gillman, Ph.D., and CSUF’s President Mildred Garcia, Ed.D., renewed their commitment to guaranteeing university transfer to their institutions for SAUSD students who graduated high school and enrolled the following year at Santa Ana College. When ready for transfer these students would receive guaranteed admission to UCI and CSUF as long as they met the respective institution’s academic requirements.

This program will take effect in fall 2016 and is part of America’s College Promise Initiative launched by the White House and the U.S. Department of Education last year.
