Extending the Class (ETC)

Extending the Class (ETC) provides the space, guidance, and structure to successfully enhance student's understanding of the course content. ETC provides weekly study sessions which are led by a student who has recently taken the class from the same instructor and received a high final course grade. Within ETC sessions, students actively engage with their peers from class on material provided by the ETC Leader (which includes helpful study guides, content-based worksheets, and effective practice exams). ETC sessions foster a positive learning environment which not only promote what to learn, but also how to learn. Extend your learning beyond the class by attending ETC today!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • How do I know if my course is paired with ETC?
    • ETC is paired with historically difficult courses at Fresno City College. In other words, ETC is a resource for those courses which are demanding in nature and have low success rates. If ETC is paired with your course, your ETC Leader will give a brief in-class presentation at the beginning of the academic semester. Furthermore, you will receive weekly emails from your assigned ETC Leader which promote the ETC session schedule. You can also view a complete list of all ETC embedded courses and the ETC session schedules above in the section titled "ETC Session Schedules".
  • What is the cost of attending an ETC session?
    • ETC is a FREE program available to all students enrolled in ETC paired courses. There is no cost associated with attending ETC sessions.
  • What can I expect from attending an ETC session?
    • Students should expect to receive effective coverage of course material through the usage of carefully tailored worksheets, study guides, and other activities. ETC sessions are structured group study sessions in which students are able to take a hands-on approach to learning. In ETC sessions, students have the opportunity to study course content alongside their peers enrolled in the same course. Furthermore, students can expect to gain the confidence needed to do well in the class.
  • Where are ETC sessions held?
    • ETC sessions are held in classrooms throughout the Fresno City College campus community. We attempt to hold sessions in the same building as the lecture course is held for student convenience.
  • I want to attend ETC, but the ETC session schedule does not fit my availability. What should I do?
    • Although we attempt, it is very difficult to make a schedule which accommodates each student's availability. If your ETC Leader's session times do not fit with your availability, we recommend attempting to connect with your ETC Leader before or after class. You can also connect with a peer from class who attends ETC and seek their insight on what was covered in the previous ETC session. Also, do not forget to utilize your instructor as a resource. By attending your instructor's office hours, you can receive assistance with strengthening your understanding of the course content.
  • I attended an ETC session and my ETC Leader would not give me the answers to the questions I asked. Why is that?
    • In ETC, we believe in you. We want to build you as a scholar and ensure you have a thorough understanding of the course material. By simply giving you the answers, we would not be preparing you for long-term success. ETC Leaders are trained to guide you through the process of learning, by giving you effective tools and positive encouragement.
