Incarcerated Student Program/Rising Scholars

The Incarcerated Student Program, as part of the California Community College Rising Scholars Network, provides justice-impacted students, who are currently incarcerated, the opportunity to complete an AA-T in Sociology, an AA in Liberal Arts: Liberal Arts and Humanities, or a certificate of specialization in Small Business Management. The program emphasizes skills essential for employment and reintegration into society: communication, critical thinking, and lifelong learning habits. ISP is part of FRC's commitment to the California Community College mission and the Vision for Success.

Correspondence Program

This correspondence program aligns to those programs offered in other delivery modalities (e.g., in-person, online). All courses, and sections of courses, whether online, on campus, or through correspondence, follow the college’s approved course outlines, including topics and student learning outcomes. The only difference is that curriculum and effective and regular contact between students and instructors are conducted exclusively by mail. With the popularity of online courses, one might assume that traditional “paper and pencil” type of correspondence courses have become obsolete. FRC has discovered that correspondence courses remain valuable learning modality that facilitates self-motivation, and where students may work at a reasonable pace without always depending on often unreliable or inaccessible technology.  FRC’s correspondence courses are specifically developed to serve California’s incarcerated students and their educational goals.
