What Students Are Saying

3.04 Average Rating
Fullerton College is overall a very clean and safe campus; dedicated to providing designated smoke-free zones to help prevent second hand smoke. They also have a very large library with access to computers, copiers, printers, and reference materials. Most of the reference materials that can be found at the library can also be accessed online.
Shelly from Anaheim, CA
A fantastic and economic education. I have been impressed by every single teacher I've had and the financial aid is more than helpful with such low costs for in-state students. The people and systems have also been very friendly about my many questions.
