Financial Aid

Visit the Financial Aid Office in the 100 building to obtain a financial aid application packet. Eligibility for assistance is based on federal and state guidelines. Apply early as awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis. For further information, call (714) 888 – 7588 or visit the Financial Aid web page.

Design Your Student Program

Use the class schedule to design your student program. Find important registration information, semester calendar dates, and other necessary details for your success. Schedules are available in the college bookstore and online. Remember that the schedule does not replace your need for a Fullerton College Catalog.

Register for Classes

Choose classes that align with your educational goals. New and returning students will receive a “Registration Appointment” e-mail for online registration through myGateway.

Pay Your Fees

Pay your fees immediately upon registering through myGateway to avoid class cancellations. Fullerton College accepts checks, money orders, Visa, and MasterCard. Cash is ONLY accepted in person at the Admissions & Records Office. A list of fees is available online.

Print your Schedule/Bill Receipt online before the term starts. This will serve as your receipt for all added or dropped classes, so check it carefully.

Steps to Enroll

If you decide not to attend classes for which you have registered,
it is your responsibility to officially drop within the published deadlines.
Refer to the class schedule for deadlines.

If fees have not been paid, students who drop classes after the refund deadline
will incur a financial obligation to the college, and an administrative hold will be placed on their student record.

This hold will block you from future registration (Adds, Drops, and Withdrawals),
obtaining transcripts, grades, diplomas, or verification of enrollment until all fees are paid.
