International Student Fees

All International Students are required to enroll and complete at least 12 units each fall and spring term.

The following are estimated expenses for one academic year (not including Summer sessions). The actual costs may vary.  All figures are in US dollars. Tuition and fees are due in full at the time of registration.  A college health insurance plan must be purchased by all international students.  For more information, please see Health Insurance Information.Fees are subject to change by the State of California and the South Orange County Community College District.


2022-2023 Estimate of Costs


There are multiple options for our international students to pay their tuition and fees.  We accept cash, check, credit card, and money order. 

Saddleback College has partnered with Flywire to provide an additional payment solution for our international students. Flywire offers multiple payment options, which includes international credit card payments (i.e. - AliPay, UnionPay) and international wire transfers, all at excellent foreign exchange rates. They’ll ensure your payment arrives safely and accurately.

Please note that no refunds of overpayments will be issued to the student. Rather, all overpayments will be returned via Flywire, to the account from which the payment originated, at the going exchange rate when a return is initiated. The student will be notified, if this should occur.

Payments made via Flywire would only be for those fees charged through MySite, which includes application fees and tuition related fees (i.e. - enrollment, health, material fee, ASIVC). The cost of books and student insurance would not be included in the payment amount.
