Eighty-three of the graduates were Dual Enrollment students. These students earned both their high school diplomas and an associate degree in the same year. There were 49 seniors from Design Science Middle College High School, 33 from Career Technical Education Charter High School (CTEC), and one from Hallmark Charter School. Established in 2005, Design Science

has a 100% graduation rate with 100% accepted to a 4-year university or college. Design Science is located on the Fresno City College campus. FCC continues to remain competitive. The college’s programs, offerings and free services to our students provide a multi- pronged approach to completion and transfer. Many students in this graduating class had their world changed with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. For some, they started their col- lege journey virtually and never stepped foot on campus. For others, they came back to in-person classes with restrictions and mandates. By offering free tuition and other incentives like free textbooks hundreds of students persisted and succeeded. Other free non-academic assistance, like providing food at the Ram Pantry, also helped to increase the completion rates. The college is unlocking the future for thousands of Central Valley residents.
