FCC Description

The second-oldest community college in the nation, Fresno City College offers an environment steeped in tradition with learning options that look to the future.

Beautiful, old ivy-lined brick buildings make up the Fresno City College campus located in the heart of Fresno, California.

However, Fresno’s program offerings are anything but old or outdated. A highly developed online system allows students to take courses through distance learning. They may also receive counseling and tutoring services, academic advising and even an orientation through the online division. In addition, FCC’s distance learning division offers videoconference courses.

Regardless of whether students attend the distance learning program or on-site classes, degree and certificate programs are available in a number of subject areas. Whether one wishes to move directly into the workforce or transfer to a four-year university, Fresno City has a program.

Technical, medical and technological fields, as well as programs in the arts, humanities, communications, math, sciences and engineering are all available at Fresno City College.

Student services are comprehensive and include a career center, disable student services, academic advising, counseling and financial aid for eligible students.

Fresno City College is a tad bit bigger than I expected. I had some trouble finding classes my first day of school but I managed after the first day. There were many friendly people there that were more than happy to help you find your class. Stands were posted as soon as you walk in school, with maps of the school. The students and staff there also helped out with directions on where to go. So far I have no special memorable experience because it was my first year in this college and I tried to dedicate myself to pass my courses and get used to the school overall. For new students going to this school, I highly recommend that you go on a tour before you start school. it will make your first day much easier.

The campus is a great. I love it, because it is nice and not dirty. I would advice new students not to drop out and later return. It will be extremely hard to get the best schedule possible for you. Try to stay in school even if it is taken one class maybe two classes. That is the best tip I have for new students.
