Fullerton College Hosts Family Night Webinars for High School Seniors

May 06, 2020

High school seniors interested in attending Fullerton College this summer or fall will have an opportunity to learn more about the college’s resources, outreach services and tuition-free Promise Program during one of four Family Night Webinars scheduled in May.

The webinars are offered on Zoom in both English and Spanish formats and are intended to inform high school seniors and their parents about the expanded two-year free Promise Program. The webinars will also cover eligibility requirements and step-by-step guidance on how to successfully apply to Fullerton College and the Promise Program. The presentations will also highlight how Fullerton College is supporting students in remote learning environments.

“This year’s Family Night, although now delivered virtually, will still be an excellent opportunity for new students and their families to learn what sets Fullerton College apart from other community colleges in the area, said Counselor and Educational Partnerships & Outreach Coordinator Rolando Sanabria. “We remain committed to helping high school seniors transition to Fullerton College with as much ease as possible, even during the current shift to remote environments.”

Much like the rest of the campus, Fullerton College Educational Partnerships & Outreach and Promise Program offices have moved all of their services online, providing current and prospective students with virtual office hours, individual appointments, and helpful video tutorials available on their website and social media.

“We would like to provide a smooth transition for students and the “How-to” videos on our websites guide students through each step of the college entry process,” said Promise Program Director Deniz Fierro. “The Family Night Webinars are a great addition to our online resources and will provide more details about the Program’s benefits and services.”

The Promise Program is available to all first-time college students and provides two years of free tuition, waived health fees, priority and enhanced registration services, and personalized support.

The four webinars will be:

  • AUHSD Pledge Family Night, Thursday, May 7 at 7 – 8 p.m.
  • Spanish Promise Family Night, Tuesday, May 12 at 7 – 8 p.m.
  • FJUHSD Family Night, Wednesday, May 13 at 7 – 8 p.m.
  • PYLUSD, BOUSD, & all other first-time college students: Promise Family Night, Thursday, May 14 at 7 – 8 p.m.
