Transfer Achievement Program

The Transfer Achievement Program (TAP) is a program designed to encourage and support students in their goal of transferring to a four-year college or university.  This goal is met by offering a comprehensive, student-centered instructional, and peer-supportive program tailored to meet the needs of today’s community college students.

Corey Lamb - FC Student Highlight!

Fullerton College students come from all walks of life – each one with an individual story of how they arrived at FC, challenges and achievements they’ve experienced along the way, and most importantly, a goal of where they’re headed beyond Fullerton College. Their stories help connect us, inspire us, and give meaning to the fact that Community Lives Here.

Meet Corey Lamb!

Corey Lamb began pursuing his education in 2016 after turning away from a troubled lifestyle. Upon earning his California High School Equivalence Certificate from ABC Adult School, he enrolled in his first class at Fullerton College in the spring of 2016. Since then Lamb has completed 51 units and holds a 4.0 GPA. He is majoring in sociology and is on track to graduate with his associate degree in 2018 at which point he plans to transfer to UC Berkeley. Outside of college coursework, Lamb is a father to his 3-year old daughter and spends any free time he has mentoring individuals struggling with substance abuse. He strives to be an encouragement to those around him and has also volunteered with the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force. Here’s what Lamb has to say about being a Hornet!

Why did you choose Fullerton College?

Growing up, there was never much talk about college so I knew very little about it. It wasn’t until much later in life when I was a single parent that I was directed to an assessment center to do some testing. After three days of testing, the supervisor of the center called me into his office and told me that I tested very high. I told him that I was desperate to make a change in my life so that I may provide a better life for my daughter. He said he believed I could pass my GED and told me about financial aid programs and that Fullerton College would be a great place to go. He was right!

What support programs have you encountered while at FC?

There is so much support at Fullerton College. I began with the Transfer Achievement Program (TAP), which gave me access to counselors, counseling classes, priority registration, supplemental instruction, and a community of friends in the same classes. TAP instructors communicated with counselors regularly so that nobody was in danger of falling behind. Counseling classes such as COUN 101 F and 151 F helped me tremendously. Through those courses I gained confidence in my studies. Additionally, EOPS, CARE, and Disability Support Services have been significant resources that have helped me.  

What do you enjoy most about FC?

What I love most about Fullerton College is that anyone from any situation or background can find a path to a new future here. Every step of the way you have the support of dedicated and caring professionals. The faculty and staff at Fullerton College are the best!

What advice would you give to new students?

If I could offer advice to new students it would be to take your studies serious and put them first. I have been out in the world for a couple of decades and I can tell you first-hand that it is hard out there. You will not go far without an education. There are people here at Fullerton College who genuinely want to see you succeed and who will help you in every way they can. Show up to class, raise your hand, go to office hours, and try your best. If you are struggling ASK FOR HELP.
