A Saddleback fall 2023 application will ensure that Saddleback is your College of Record and begins the process of your Promise Program eligibility.
October 1, 2022: the fall 2023 application opens for first-time freshman
A student has an active application if the application was submitted for a previous semester AND the student has taken a course at Saddleback College for fall 2022 or spring 2023.
Within 24 - 48 hours, students receive an email from the Saddleback Admission and Records Office titled “Saddleback College - Permit to Register.” In this email you will find your Saddleback ID number and your Resident Status.
Confirm that your Resident Status says “Resident.” If it reads “Non-resident,” follow the instructions to establish California residency or to request the AB540 - California resident status exemption (for undocumented/Dreamer students).
