Parking is a mess at city college you have to get to campus with an hour to spare or park at the stadium parking. The stadium parking is the farthest away, but never gets full like the others. Just make sure when using this parking lot to be here 15 minutes before your class, because you will spend 10 of those minutes walking to campus. Take advantage of this parking lot and never have worry about the parking nightmare on campus.
Due to the higher number of students at this college, getting your classes can be a real challenge. I recommend enrolling at Midnight before the first day for registration for best chances. The only two other ways to get your classes is to play a sport, or get accepted into EOPS which is a program at FCC. If you meet the requirements for FCC apply for the program, if accepted you'll get priority registration, even before all the athletes do. You will be guarantee any class, any time of day and any teacher with priority registration.

- Be open-minded. Because Fresno City College is a community college, and a public institution, there are lots of different types of people all around. If you can get out of your comfort zone, and get your foot in the door with a lot of different groups, the experiences that open up are endless.
- Go to class! This is a general tip for every college or school you'll ever go to, but because of the number of students that need to get into classes at FCC, professors have no qualms about dropping a student from a class, even five or six weeks into the semester! You have to earn your seat in a class, and want to be there to learn.
- Get involved in the clubs on campus. There is one for almost every interest, skill, or ethnic group. They're easy to check out at the Club Days, and will give you a fantastic extracurricular college experience.
- Explore the area around the college! FCC is located right in the middle of Fresno's famous Tower District. There are locally owned restaurants and coffee shops sprinkled amid local art galleries and retro clothing stores.

Be prepared for a high school like atmosphere in the classroom. It is way easy and is taught a lot like a high school only you aren't required to go to class. However, most teachers take role on a daily basis and use attendance as participation points on a final grade. Just go to class. It is very tempting to skip out, but don't lower your grade because you didn't show up. Also, make sure you have in mind where you would like to transfer and make sure your classes are transferable.

You're going to save a lot of time and stress from applying to Fresno City College. So use that saved time and apply for scholarships! I truly regret not spending my senior year in high school applying for grants and scholarships. Ask around who are the best professors to take: at least somebody in your class will tell you who to take and who not to take. Students share wonderful tips! Over 40,000 students are enrolled, so fight for a way to get priority registration, otherwise it'll be hard to get in your classes. I volunteered to take notes for students in my class and that gave my priority registration. You can sign up for the Honors program, as well.
