4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: FCC is cost effective. I know there are a lot of opportunities to receive financial aid but I have not really explored them just yet. I should since they've asked me to join the honors college a few times. I know the honors college gives out very good scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The education program/AAT is efficient and the professors are the best in my opinion. The program requires you to perform observations in local schools to gain experience and confidence with students and the school environment as a whole.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: FCC offers a great educational opportunity to have a more flexible schedule. The professors I have come in contact with have been attentive and helpful, and the workload is not too strenuous. The registration process is accessible, though the advisors do not seem too knowledgeable about the transfer credits.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The campus offers the basic resources that I need but I do not often utilize them. I have not even been in the library because I prefer the public library downtown. I hear about campus activities but I have not been formally invited to any.The general campus aesthetic fits how you would expect a community college to be. The lack of "community" is definitely there though.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body at Frederick Community College is extremely diverse. It is not unusual to have classmates ranging anywhere from still in high school and upward. I have also had the privilege of studying with deaf students who are assigned interpreters so that they can attend and participate in regular lectures. I admire how much the deaf students are involved in the coursework, often times you hear from them more than the hearing students!

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition at Frederick Community College is very affordable compared to most alternatives. At FCC, I felt that my education has been a bargain. You are given the luxury of very small class sizes with extremely tentative instructors who are committed to your success in the course. Although I did not personally qualify for much financial aid, I know that the college does a great job of providing for those who truly are in need.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Flexibily at Frederick Community College is one of the best aspects of attending the college. At FCC, they offer such a wide range of course dates and times- including evening, weekends, online, jan-term, and summer schedules. I have had no issues whatsoever scheduling all of my courses in a manageable fashion so that it is accommodating to my busy work schedule. If you are punctual and ensure that you sign up for courses early, you will have no problem getting the times that you want.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Frederick Community College has been outstanding. I have had great professors who truly take interest in your success and encourage you to keep up the hard work. I feel that I have acquired great knowledge while attending FCC and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to attend this school while completing my associates degree in business.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Taking online courses at Frederick Community College is an excellent alternative for those who do not have as flexible a schedule that allows them to commit to a 75 minute course on campus twice a week. The online courses that I have taken have been nothing less than spectacular. Although the workload is a bit heavier, the professors do an excellent job or posting assignments well in advance and accommodating any issues students may be having. The discussion boards are a great platform for the classes to communicate, and the professors do a great job of posting grades in a timely manner.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body at Frederick Community College is diverse in all aspects. Students range from open-campus high school age and upward. It is not unusual to have classes with adults who have decided to continue their education or even students with disabilities such as the deaf community. I have had the privilege to work with dead students in numerous courses and I found it enlightening to watch as the interpreter signed each lecture to the students, I also admired how they adhered to the courses so quickly and participated often more than the hearing students.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Post grad services at Frederick Community College are readily available for all alumni and graduates. Many of the programs offer either a continuing education track or a 2 year degree for careers track. For those wishing to join the workforce immediately upon graduating from FCC, the professors are well equipped with resources for students to job hunt and network with local businesses looking to hire.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: As a business administration major, Frederick Community College is a great place to test the waters with various economics, accounting, and marketing courses. The professors are well rounded and bring a real world aspect to the classroom. Lectures are never dull and often incorporated with other learning platforms such as videos, discussion boards, online tutorials, etc. the course load is demanding but when you are studying your interests you don't feel so bogged down by busy work.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors at Frederick Community College do a great job of making themselves readily available to all students. When registering for classes, the advisors are easy to contact and have very organized schedules which makes meeting with them quick and easy. FCC offers many programs from technical studies, culinary, nursing, etc. Students are bound to find a program they are passionate about.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Frederick Community College offers excellent campus resources for both prospective students as well as current students. The library is very well organized and generously stocked with a wide variety of resources for students to use. The faculty is also kind and helpful. As a student who can struggle a bit with mathematics, the math tutoring center was a wonderful bonus where I could receive one-on-one lessons on whatever topics necessary. The cafeteria is clean and inviting with plenty of space for students to spread out and study, as well as the various students centers amongst campus which serve as private work areas.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
