Santa Ana College (SAC), established in 1915, is a public community college situated in Santa Ana, California, approximately 10 miles from the city of Anaheim. Known for its distinctive Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style, the campus facilitates a broad range of associate degree programs, certificates, and transfer opportunities to four-year institutions. SAC features a diverse academic profile, with popular majors including Business Administration, Nursing, and Fire Technology. While the college maintains an open admissions policy, some specific programs may have competitive entry based on capacity or academic criteria. The campus does not offer on-campus housing, reflecting its commuter school status. However, it provides a comprehensive educational environment with state-of-the-art facilities and technology. Santa Ana College's emphasis on vocational training and career readiness is complemented by its strong transfer preparation programs for students aiming to continue their education at a university level. Notably, SAC's athletics teams, known as the Dons, compete in various sports within the California Community College Athletic Association but are not predominantly recognized for their athletic programs on a national scale.

Santa Ana College has an open admission policy which permits enrollment by any high school graduate or GED holding student.  3,863 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 19,989 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $1,104 plus fees of $76.
