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.

Applicants must show official proof of funding prior to being admitted to Saddleback College.  A bank statement in student’s name or in sponsor’s name is required upon application. An additional $5,000 per dependent is required.

Fees are subject to change by the State of California and the South Orange County Community College District.

Financial aid is not available for international students.  Although F-1 visa international students are not eligible for Federal or State financial aid, there are competitive merit based (based on academic achievement) scholarships available to all Saddleback College students each spring for the following academic year.  For more information, please see: Student Financial Assistance & Scholarship Office.
