Ask yourself the following questions to determine if you are a good fit for these classes:
 
1. Do I have the time in my schedule to be committed to complete college coursework on time?
2. Do I meet the prerequisites (if there are any) for the class I want to take?
3. Will I ask questions if I need help?
4. Will I check my Canvas account on a regular basis without being prompted to check for announcements and assignments?
5. Am I serious about attending all classes and earning college credit?
6. Am I aware that these courses and grades will go on my permanent college record?
 
If you answered "Yes" to all these questions, you may be a good fit to take CollegeLink courses! It is always a good idea to talk to your Counselor or College and Career Technician to determine the best fit for you.

Chart showing what areas our CollegeLink classes fulfill.
1. Does my student need to attend Fullerton College to receive the college units earned from these classes?
No, the college units are on Fullerton College's official transcript so your student can take with them to any college they plan to attend. Students must pass these classes in order to receive units. Where the units are applied may vary between colleges. If your student plans to attend a private college, please contact them directly to inquire about transferable units. Visit https://admissions.fullcoll.edu/transcripts/ for information to receive your official transcript.
 
2. Are the classes scaled down for high school students?
No, the classes are equally as rigorous as other college classes as they are taught by college Professors.
 
3. Will these grades be on my permanent record?
Yes, all grades will be included on your permanent college transcript and affect your college GPA. This has negative consequences if students fail the class.
 
4. Will these classes be on the High School transcript?
Please see your Counselor to ask about this.
 
5. What is a Withdrawal "W" grade?
A withdrawal grade indicates that a student withdrew or dropped a class. The grade does not affect the GPA. Students that drop before 20% of the total class time will not receive any record of having taken or dropped the class. Please see Fullerton College's handout on Withdrawal grades for more information.
 
6. Can I take multiple classes in the same semester?
Remember that these are college courses and have very rigorous curriculum. We have seen a handful of students be successful with 2 classes, but it is rare as the workload can be overwhelming. You would also need to take classes that are not at the same time in Fullerton College's system. Even if the class is fully online, they still have a designated date and time in the system. If the times overlap, the system will not let you register for both classes. It would be equivalent to having two 3rd period classes.
 
7. How many classes can I take?
There is no limit to how many classes you can take throughout all of high school that go on your permanent college transcript that do not go on your high school transcript. If you would like to know how to get classes on your high school transcript for elective credit, please see your counselor. We recommend only taking 1 class at a time to promote a balanced, healthy schedule. Students may also not take multiple classes that overlap in times they are offered.
 
8. I am a 9th grader, what classes can I take?
CollegeLink courses are intended for 11th-12th grade students, but if you are a self-motivated and hard working 9th-10th grade student, you may do well in our classes. As long as your Counselor or CCT thinks you are capable enough to handle the college-level workload and approve you to take a course, you will be considered for the course. Please note that 11th-12th grade students will have priority as you still have more time to take these courses. Some classes also have requirements or are intended for 11th-12th grade students only.
 
9. Can I take a course that is not on the list?
Yes, you may take a course that is not offered as a CollegeLink class, however, you will need to pay for your own textbook and you will be in a class with other Fullerton College students. You will also be given last priority as Fullerton College would like to serve their own students first. You can select classes through the Special Admit program. Learn more here. You may also take classes at other Community Colleges, but you may need to pay for tuition and/or textbooks.
