5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is fair for the for credit courses. But there are fees that, while they may be listed somewhere, I never found it. I first found out about the fees when I registered for my first semester. It was a bit shocking.

I do not believe that a required non-credit class should cost as much as a required for credit class. I also don't think they should be graded; they should be pass or fail.

As for getting financial aid, like everywhere else, you have to do your FAFSA. From there, apply for the college's bi-annual scholarship (it's easy). Then ask your advisor about department specific scholarships. If you are attending for a minimum number of hours, there is also a work-study program you can apply to.

Overall Experience: The professors I've had are all very enthusiastic about the topic as well as the classes and students. Their enthusiasm draws the students in and encourages a desire to learn and make connections to the world outside of school with the knowledge being learned.

Had I given it more thought, I would have looked into at least one other college for the same program. Not sure which of the two I'd have chosen since I never looked into the other school.

Academic Experience: Well I am not quiet there to be in the major I wanted to take. They have the programs but not enough student to sign up so it wasn't
their fault. So far I am happy I learn few things about writing because I wrote it completely different

Academic Flexibility: I chose this school because it close to home and have the classes that I wanted to take. Luckily the have the schedule on my day off from work so it work out perfectly. Haven't been to school since 2005 and I was a nervous wreck enter a class with interpreter. Felt like I was failing class but I not going to give up.This is noncredit class to improve my English better in writing

Campus Resources: I love the library there it nice and quiet and don't charge me a penny to use their computer and print is reasonable amount per day for classes. They provide any assist if I need help and giveaway free book. I felt like I was school library not general library specific for educational purpose. Honestly I have been to whole campus just the library building for my classes and I can say anything else about the campus

Campus Resources: Campus provide computer anywhere on campus to provide access and help like the tutoring center, library, or help center to know campus network more better

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I chose FCC because of their affordability. I just moved here from GA last year and didn't have a college in mind to apply to. Their fees increased from last year but so is everything. It is to be expected but still lower than a 4 year college.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The library computers are the only thing I have used. I take a design studio class there and the classmates are very nice and helpful. I have been meaning to use the weight room on campus but haven't gotten their hours of operation yet. I tried taking a weigh class but the time I needed was cancelled because of low enrollment.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am pursuing an AA degree in General Studies with a focus in Computer graphics. I like illustrating and would like to attend UMBC for an animation and computer graphics degree. I am a full time student taking 5 classes. I enjoy animation and web design. I will be applying to an internship next spring for the summer or fall, 2014.

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.
