Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Seriously, if you're going to community college chances are you have other responsibilities. This place is an awesome choice to kick start your college education and transition you into college.
Rebekah from Irvine, CA
For whatever money you pay here, it's worth it.
Suman from LA Habra, CA
i've paid such a reasonable amount for the schooling i have gotten. you get a great education for more than half the price of a 4 year institution. i would seriously recommend fullerton college if you aren't dead set on your major or what school you want to go to. you get the same g.e. classes for 1/4 of the price.

I just did a search online and found that it costs $36 per unit to attend Fullerton College. I didn't even know this. Why, you ask? Because I don't pay for school/tuition! I qualified for the Board of Governors' Fee waiver so I am going to college for free. Pretty amazing huh? On top of that I had a high GPA in high school so I qualified for a Cal Grant, so I'm getting paid close to $3,000 TO GO TO SCHOOL. That's right. I get PAID to go to school. I have also won $1,600 in scholarships from the Fullerton College Scholarship Foundation that I didn't even end up using because I didn't need it so that money went straight to buying textbooks and other materials, i.e. art supplies, dance shoes, etc. (SIDE NOTE: Textbooks are VERY expensive. This semester I spent close to $400 on textbooks ALONE.) So make sure to apply for financial aid, scholarships, and spend the money wisely because you will need it!

I have used so many of their resources, primarily for discovering what careers I should look into. The tutors are great and the staff is friendly.
Aubrey from Brea, CA
The prices is one of the main reasons why I decided to attend Fullerton College. Its a cheaper price for the same gosh darn degree! Most people qualify for financial aid anyway so its double the help... I don't know why you would want to start out spending a hundred dollars per unit... that's crazy talk!
Cristina from Anaheim, CA
Fantastic! I really can't say anything bad about this school because it's been a godsend. I love it!
