  1. Submit Immunization Docs

    In order to participate in coursework and clinical rotations, you’ll need to complete and submit paperwork documenting your vaccination against bacterial meningitis. Work with your doctor to get the right immunizations.

  2. Submit Transcripts

    If you’ve attended any other higher ed institutions, you’ll need to submit official transcripts for those, as well as your high school transcript. Explore each school’s website to learn how to order transcripts.

  3. Claim Your Student Account

    San Jac’s secure online system (SOS) is a vital resource to activate to access platforms used throughout your time at the College. Before jumping into classes, claim your account and log into My San Jac to get the lay of the land.

  4. Complete New Student Orientation

    New student orientation is offered online and in-person. To register, log into My San Jac, click on the “SOS Login” and sign up for a slot.

  5. Explore Financial Aid

    The last step? Finding financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, and federal funds. Use San Jac’s code (003609) to apply for FAFSA, or explore college-issued scholarships for additional aid.
