CollegeLink: Free College Courses


Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) high school students can earn college credit by enrolling in courses offered by Fullerton College. These courses are taught in person on PYLUSD high school campuses and are free of charge and include textbooks. All courses are CSU and UC-approved for transfer. Students do not need to commit to attend Fullerton College in order to take these classes and receive credit. The goal of these classes is to help students transfer to their desired 4-year college or graduate quicker.

Fall 2020 Courses 

All courses are online. If a time is listed for the class, the student must be available during that time to attend a virtual class. Online coursework will be done through Canvas, please see this guide to familiarize yourself with the platform.

*Please note that 11th-12th grade students are given priority as 9th-10th grade students have other opportunities to take these classes.
