Re-Entry Services

We assist individuals who are returning to college and/or the workforce. Our aim is to guide, educate, and empower individuals by helping to remove barriers to ensure student success.

Services include individual and group advisement, resources, referrals, support groups, and scholarships to returning students. Due to demand, appointments are limited to a maximum of six per semester. Walk-in appointments are not available. 

Before making an appointment, all re-entry students are highly encouraged to apply to Saddleback College.
