3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school tuition is fair to students from out or in county , but personally think it's too high for an in county student. That's why I can't only afford paying my school tuition through down payments.

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.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Its not bad because I have in-state tuition.

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.

FCC has a tuition program called FACTS that lets students pay on a monthly payment plan. Students can have the payment plan for up to five months. Through the e-Cashier, students can pay their tuition in full, make a down payment, or just pay monthly. Waivers and tuition reductions are also available for people 60 years or older and for disabled retirees. 

In-county tuition is offered to Maryland residents who apply for specific health care degrees, and a 50-percent tuition waiver is available for Maryland National Guard members. There are also Military Tuition Assistance and Veteran Benefits programs for active duty, retired, or reserve military personnel. Veteran Benefits is for the retired military. FCC has a VA (Veteran Affairs) representative who will help with procedures.

Frederick County Workforce Services also provides tuition assistance for those who are under- or unemployed in accordance to income guidelines. FCC also offers adult services, transfer scholarships, tax credits, and employer educational benefits. Adult services help adults returning to education. Transfer scholarships are available to students who transfer from other schools. The FCC Web site has a specific link for transfer students with credit transfers, scholarships, and more.
