Library Cards

Current student ID serves as the library card and is non-transferable. 

FC STUDENTS
FC students need the following to check out materials:

  • Current student ID

Current Registration Validation Sticker
If the student has his/her student ID, but it is not current, the student can produce his/her current semester class printout showing that fees are paid and obtain a sticker showing the current semester.
The library current semester sticker says Associated Students fees have NOT been paid.  If students have paid the AS fees, they must go to 200 Building rm. 214 to obtain the AS fees paid sticker. In the meantime, students may use the ID w/library sticker for checking out materials. 

Non FC Library Cards
NOCCCD
Students from the following colleges may use the ID cards issued by their respective institutions to check out Circulating books from the Fullerton College Library. However, students must have a current Fullerton College student ID to check out Reserve items.

  • Cypress College
  • Orange Coast College
  • Golden West College
  • North Orange County Community College District School of Continuing Education (SCE). In the Reserve collection, SCE students may use their SCE IDs for checking out SCE Reserves books and laptops only. FC Reserves requires FC Student IDs.
  • SCE students must show a goverment issued ID (California driver's license or CA ID) along with the SCE card.

Fullerton College students have priority over students from these other schools when checking out study rooms, unless the student is also enrolled at FC.
