Academic Flexibility: I have never had any issues with transfer credits. My FCC advisor was a huge help and supporter when it came to transfer credits.

Online Courses: I have taken several online courses through BlackBoard and have found it to be very manageable and easy to navigate. The courses are set up so it is easy to find assignments, check grades, participate in discussion boards, etc. Although it is wise to stay on top of your workload, the online classes made making deadlines easier for those of us with full time jobs and other responsibilities.

Career Services: The post-grad job prospects are wonderful. To this day I'm sure I could contact any one of my instructors for information regarding possible career opportunities and they would do everything in their power to send me in the right direction.

Overall Experience: Although every course and every instructor are different, they all have shared the same drive and passion for teaching and helping each student achieve their goals. The majority of the instructors are professionals and have built a career on the subject matter of which they are teaching. I have had many instructors who have had to drive several hours to and from FCC for only one class. That just shows their dedication and love for the subject. Seeing them teach with such drive and passion makes me respect them more as a teacher and makes me want to learn the subject matter so I have a better understanding of why they love to teach whatever they are teaching so much.

Overall Experience: Many of the instructors have very close ties to different career opportunities in the community and even on a larger scale. For example, my welding instructor gets calls every semester from contractors asking her if she has any newly certified students that would be interested in a job. Therefore, doing well in class such as welding could get you recommended for a position you didn't even know existed.

Academic Experience: When I tell people I am taking a welding course, I almost always get funny looks. Being the only female welder in a shop overflowing with testosterone can be trying at times. However, I am very thankful for the push and drive it has given me to be just as good a welder if not better. The intro to welding course allows its students to take an exam at the end of the semester. This exam decides whether or not you become a certified 2G welder, which can directly lead to a career opportunity. The curriculum strictly covered what we learned in class and the workload was evenly spread out. The facility is an excellent learning environment! The shop is equipped with well running, up to date machinery to make welding as "real world" as possible, all while remaining a safe learning environment. The staff are dedicated to helping each student discover their strengths and improve their weaknesses, as well as to provide as much information as possible about new job opportunities.

Overall Experience: Over the past few years I have experimented with several other schools. Yet, I seem to keep coming back to FCC. The smaller class sizes allow for a more individualized learning experience. Due to the location of the school and its surroundings, it is ideal for almost every class. For example, I took an ecology class and the campus is close enough to local and state parks for us to be able to take field trips. This greatly helped me to gain a broader understanding of the subject matter. Also, there are many great resources nearby. For instance, the Monroe Center is where I am currently taking a Welding class and have enrolled for this upcoming semester to take the next level course. The Monroe center offers students an opportunity to gain real life experiences in the field of their choice. Some of these courses include culinary arts, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, carpentry, welding, and nursing, just to name a few. The staff at FCC is always willing to lend a helping hand and guide each student in the right direction. Their professionalism and dedication to educating each student cannot be touched by other colleges. I would highly recommend FCC to anyone looking for an affordable and quality college!

Academic Experience: The art classes at Frederick Community College are great. The teachers are really loving what they do and make me love the subject even more.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Frederick Community College has the general classes that I need and it's good for starters if you're unsure of where to go.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I included myself in a sports team which has improved my experience. I love the people on my team and my coach. I have yet to find a club that i was interested in and i also didnt have time to join a club due to my hectic work schedule but i love the people there

Overall Experience: there are lots of ways to make connections at this school, as long as you meet the right people and seek help everyone is willing to help.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The major i would like to go into is not offered at fcc.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's okay now, although it is a community college, which isn't my issue, it does have great academics and is easy to get around campus. However, my issues stem from the financial aid office. I get only loans in financial aid. This is an issue because i get no help from my parents and i also work three jobs to put myself through school and help my parents with bills and such at home. the financial aid office is horrible in administering help as well. i received no scholarships that i applied for and i also have yet to talk to someone about my situation face to face. Their customer service is horrible and i would not recommend going to this school if you know you will need help financially.

Overall Experience: I enjoyed my first semester at Frederick Community College. I love the fact that my classes are small, it makes me feel like my voice can be heard. I have had some great teachers at this school, teachers who are accessible, caring, entertaining, and informative. All of the above contributed to me landing on the Dean's List. I recommend this school to anyone in the area trying to excel in academics. I also would like to note that I had a great counselor who helped me begin to plan the next few years. My counselor always remembered me and my situation, and I could tell she wanted me to see me do well.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have declared my major as Education, but I still took general studies courses this semester. My math class was actually a requirement for my AAT, but it was also a general studies course. I have only taken one class that was not general studies, Schools and Society. That is specifically to get my AAT. For this class, I had to observe 15 hours in schools; five in an elementary, five in a middle, and five in a high school. This gave me the opportunity to talk to current teachers, especially in the age range that I am trying to teach in. They were able to give me some advice from a professional's point of view, this was helpful for me in deciding if I still want to pursue this career. From my observations, I was able to make some new contacts, and now I have a few teachers who are willing to help me in anyway that they can. I didn't have too much work, I was still able to maintain all of my classwork, work, and have free time.

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.
