Details are being finalized and will be communicated in the coming weeks. Please continue to check the this webpage for additional information.

Saddleback College is working with a company called MarchingOrder, a virtual platform and hub, to honor our Spring 2021 graduates. The site will give each graduate an opportunity to submit a photo and brief message to family, friends, and the Saddleback community. * Creating a slide is optional, but they will be used at the drive thru commencement ceremony if you create one.
