Fullerton College Returns to the Hive This Fall!

Fullerton College welcomes students to our beautiful campus in a safe gradual reopening this fall! Significant changes have been made throughout the campus to upgrade ventilation systems and create safe and welcoming spaces for students. A full reopening of the campus is expected in January 2022. Students have the flexibility to shape their college experience by choosing in-person and/or online services and instruction throughout the fall semester. Whether students select in-person, online or a hybrid approach to their fall semester, Fullerton College faculty and staff will be there at each step of the way to support students throughout their journey.
