Fullerton College works with local high schools to help transition students to Fullerton College. High school students can take advantage of dual enrollment and special admit programs to start earning college credit while still in high school. Other partnerships such as the Anaheim Pledge and Fullerton Partnership can provide graduates of AUHSD and FJUHSD with up to one-year of tuition assistance during their freshman year at Fullerton College.

Anaheim Pledge and FJUHSD Partnership

The Anaheim Union Educational Pledge (a.k.a. Anaheim Pledge) is a collective designed to transform the lives of students through education and economic advancement. All Anaheim Union High School District (AUSHD) seniors are eligible for one-year of free tuition to attend their freshman year at Fullerton College.

The Fullerton Education Partnership creates a smooth pathway from the Fullerton Joint Union High School District (FJUHSD) to Fullerton College and California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). Fullerton College will provide free tuition to FJUHSD students for their first year at Fullerton College. To be eligible for this benefit, incoming FJUHSD students must be enrolled in 12 or more units and have completed the financial aid process.

Dual Enrollment

High school students can earn college credit by enrolling in one or more courses offered by Fullerton College in partnership with schools at Anaheim Union High School District, Brea-Olinda Unified High School District, Fullerton Joint Union High School District and Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District. Dual enrollment course offerings vary by school district. Students who enroll and complete a dual enrollment course gain access to priority registration and resources and support services available to all Fullerton College students. Learn more about dual enrollment in the 2016-17 Annual Report.

Special Admit

Fullerton College offers students enrolled in K-12 the opportunity to enroll in advanced scholastic or vocational work as Special Admit Students. Enrollment must be for “advanced scholastic or vocational work” and NOT for pre-college level math, English and reading courses offered by local high schools. Learn more about Special Admit requirements and forms at the Admissions and Records website.
