Campus Resources: The campus is well set up and the new science wing is great and offers more resources such as modern labs. Our library is staffed by people who care and are willing to help and will even go an extra step beyond telling you how they will sit down and help you and give ideas as well as offer feedback on yours.

Campus Resources: Resources are perfect for a school this size. The library is very large and has a decent amount of computers. The athletic building is huge, there is a brand new science building, computers are all over campus, lots of opportunities to receive help with class work and get involved. The campus is also very nice looking in general.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The campus environment feels safe and clean and students are kind and friendly. Library printers are easily accessible and open computers are often available.

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!

4 College Sophomore

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.

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.
