3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Everyone accepts each other. You have some weird people there but they are good people

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: They some small rooms. Some rooms don't fit enough students

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They have walk in tutors for math that will help you, but you don't get one because they have other students to help

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The wifi there is good.

5 College Junior

Facilities: We have an actual art gallery that is always being associated with National Art galleries and professional artists showing artwork. Our computer lab is another beauty because it is nothing but giant all-in one Macs with horsepower, my kind of thing since im an art major.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: All of the instructors are very talented (some famous even) in my field of study! Workload is average and job opportunities are widely ranged.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Some programs are very useful and some are waste of time. But i'd have to say the school has alot to offer in academic success in every individual.

4 College Junior

Student Body: alot of diversity and ethnicity. For being a community college it is actually surprising how many foreign exchange students we currently have. Everywhere I go ill see one.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Its fine if you are always on the go, but otherwise i would be in a classroom because the student-teacher relationship isn't there. The workload however seems laid back and not near as much as a physical classroom.

College Junior

Career Services: I did not need to go to the career center yet, but from what I hear it is nice and easy.

Academic Flexibility: I am still in the process of transferring credits but so far I am happy with the process. It has gone smoothly. I may have to take one or two classes that I have already taken but I am okay with that. It will be a good refresher since I took the courses the first semester I was here.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have had an awesome time here and I am grateful for all the help I have received over the years. Without the help, support, and encouragement, I would have given up but I didn't. This experienced has helped me achieve so much- the biggest being what I want to do with my life, career wise. If I had to do the whole school process over again, I would attend FCC before transferring. More than pleased and beyond happy!

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: The career center and transfer center have been more than helpful. I have had a lot of questions and they answer them every time. If i need help they help me without getting irritated. They are there to help which is encouraging. They want to see you succeed.

4 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition here is awesome. I feel like every course I take I am getting my moneys worth. I don't feel cheated at all. The prices of books even was affordable and reasonable. Definitely worth going to a two year school before transferring. A lot of money has been saved attending here.

4 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Online courses here are amazing! I have taken more online courses than I have on campus courses. The accessibility of them is what got me hooked. I was still able to work my two jobs and still take a full course load of online classes. The professors were beyond helpful and the courses themselves were very easy to work with.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The only thing that stood out when reading the question was the sports. Sports at FCC, especially basketball, are the heart of the school. The games I have attended are amazing, given that it is a community college and not a university. Sports are taken extra seriously here and I feel that most students look forward to every sport season, not just one.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: It is not the best. A lot of the students in my classes don't try and I feel are just there to get a degree. They aren't very driven and are immature. It is hard when there are people like me who are there to earn their degree and start their lives but then there are those who goof off in class making it hard to focus. But I guess that happens at every school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: General Education majors I find is more enjoyable. I have taken a lot of classes I would not have taken if I had a specific major. I am learning what I want to do and what I don't by majoring in Gen Ed.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: The professors, most of them, are all great and really take the time to work with you if you don't understand an assignment. The process of everything at this school from signing up for classes to actually completing the classes is so smooth and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: I say just "okay" because there isn't anything amazing about the campus. They have all the resources most colleges do. They don't go above and beyond in that area.

Frederick Community College is a small school when compared to most four-year institutions. This means it has a better student-teacher ratio and it's easier travel to and from buildings on campus, as they are closer together.  Instructors don't see students as just numbers or names. Most of the instructors are very good about checking their emails and connecting with their students. Not that four-year college instructors don't, it's just easier to do with 6,000 students instead of 27,000. 

FCC is a good starter school for those who want to further their education. The yearly tuition costs about as much as boarding fees do in a four-year college, so students have less of a problem with funding.  There is a payment plan to go with tuition, as well as several scholarships.

FCC provides for many different student needs. The certification program at FCC gives students the basic knowledge they need for certain jobs, as do the continuing education courses. The degree programs at FCC are typical of most community colleges, and many students complete their degrees within 2.5 years (many students work, so an added half a year lowers stress) or transfer with the credits they already have.
