It's not very hard to get into this schoolMay 22 2013English
It's not very hard to get into this school. I don't even think you need a high school diploma anymore. But as far as getting into the classes you want and need, register as soon as you possibly can. If you can't get registered, put yourself on the wait list. If the wait list is full, you can try and sit in on the first day of class because whoever is not there on the first day will be dropped, and sometimes you can get added if enough of the registered and wait listed students don't show up.

I registered for Fresno City College while I wasSep 01 2010Anthropology
I registered for Fresno City College while I was in high school so getting in for me was easy. Yet I've seen how busy the school can be. My advice is to come early if you need to stand in a line. Put forth effort and have a positive attitude and you will be rewarded. Sure, I may sound like a fortune cookie, but the only way to avoid waiting in a line all day is to come early and take care of business. And if it seems like no classes are adding just keep attempting, keep crashing classes. I know professors say they can't add many students, but take it from someone who has seen it dozens of times: The professors want to add students and they will add you if you stick with the class. And once you have completed a few classes signing up for classes the next semester will be easier: You get priority registration based on how many units you've completed.

Extremely easy to get into, many people apply, addFeb 08 2010Biology
Extremely easy to get into, many people apply, add classes, and then drop after they get their financial aid check.

I contacted the school admissions and they told meSep 12 2008Business - Management and Administration
I contacted the school admissions and they told me to fill out an application over the internet and it was as simple as that. I recommend to others not to wait to late to register because there are a lot of students and you will end up with few or possibly, no classes that will transfer. Also, don't take classes that have no purpose (relative to your goals). Have goals and then go after the marks you have set for yourself. Financial aide, see Cathy Johnson, the best at what she does. If there is funding out there she will assist you in getting it.
