CollegeLink: Free College Courses

Overview

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 usually taught in person on PYLUSD high school campuses (currently online due to current pandemic) 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.
