FCC Online Learning offers you a way to complete classes without the usual time and location restrictions of traditional classroom instruction. Students who take Online Learning classes at FCC enjoy the flexibility and convenience while still benefiting from the same quality academic experience as our on-campus students.

FCC offers four different types of class experiences.

  1. On-Campus: Traditional courses which meet on campus and maximize collaborative, in-person learning experiences. May or may not be enriched with web-enhanced materials.
  2. Partially Online/Hybrid: Courses have some combination of online and face-to-face instruction. Some courses may only require one face-to-face session, while others may require numerous in-class sessions. Check the class schedule for specific instructions from the professor.
  3. Online: Courses are 100% online in Canvas. Face-to-face interaction with the professor is not required but is available.
  4. Online/Synchronous: Courses are 100% online in Canvas. Students will be required to attend some synchronous [live] online sessions on specific dates and times.

Class Schedule: Partially Online/Hybrid courses have details about required attendance.  Read the class notes carefully. Fully Online classes are labeled as WEB. Evening class listings have a light gray background.

Fresno City College offers various programs that can be completed fully online for example, Health Information Technology, Spanish, Business Administration, and Library Technology and Information. Many other degrees and certificates offer a mix of online and face-to-face classes.
