Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Like other college and universities after the World War II, Fullerton Junior College hoped to generate much needed income by attracting veterans to the campus. The campus published this brochure in 1944, which included an application for admission, and distributed it throughout Southern California. Competition for veterans using the G.I. Bill was fierce. The Veterans Administration paid the cost of tuition, books, supplies, and student body fees. Upon application, enlisted men were also allowed up to a maximum of six units for military service. Those without a high school diploma could enroll in the college, then complete required courses at Fullerton Union High School. To attract married veterans, FJC also stressed courses (e.g., home economics, child care) that would appeal to young wives and mothers.
