3 College Junior

Academic Experience: As a computer aid drafter major, I have enjoyed mh courses and the assignents. & the feedback from my professors.

4 College Junior

Student Body: The college has high levels of acceptance, treat everyone equally.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've loved all my previous courses and professors!

College Junior

Online Courses: I have never experienced taking an online course

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: FCC offers mentoring programs, which I plan to take advantage of myself in the upcoming semesters! FCC also has a career transfer center for aspiring students to test the waters in their selected career. The over all quality is notable & definitely worth going to try out.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The staff at FCC really help to put you on the right track towards your career. I've met with a lot of helpful advisers who have given me a ton of useful information that I'll need to know for later on.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is affordable. I'm getting the same courses a freshman at Princeton, Yale, or even Harvard is getting, but for MUCH less money. The financial aid services are extremely helpful as well. And the college also obtains scholarships for students going to FCC who wish to further their career beyond the associates degree.

5 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is tremendous! There's an honors club available for students at FCC. You can take regular college courses but in the "honors" version. Also, the SGA is very active and participates regularly. At my college orientation, there were a ton of college students there to help make me and my fellow classmates feel more comfortable and welcome into the college environment. Everyone is welcomed and everyone gets along. It's a great place to be.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of the classes and curriculum at FCC is very satisfying. I'm enjoying my college experience so far. The professors are great & I definitely feel as if they're there to help me succeed. However, the only place that's lacking would be signing up for classes/getting information from student services. They aren't very helpful sometimes, and it seems as if they make it more harder than it really should be. But with that being said, I definitely enjoy working with the staff there who have intentions of seeing the students succeed and encourage them to do the best they can everyday.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The staff on-campus is helpful, but at times I feel as if they could do their job better. The resources are always available to help you, however, the official FCC student website can get confusing for first-generation college students like myself. The interface it very, very hard to navigate.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: The online courses are great. It definitely helps college students who have a busy life still earn a degree and further their education. However, personally, I would rather be in class. I've always benefited from in-class instruction rather than online. It's easier to forget about what's online rather than attending class regularly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I have not been to the athletic centers or the actual library. I know there are some campus activities you can attend and there are always signs for them everywhere. The newer buildings are aesthetically pleasing, the older ones not so much.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are good and bad professors which I feel is true of any school. The courses are what you make them to be; you can either get a lot out of them or get what you need to pass and be done. There is definitely a variety of courses but some are only offered once a semester or even less. Class style depends on the teacher and I have never had a class over 20 students.

College Sophomore

Career Services: As I have not graduated yet, I have no experience with the post-grad services.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I an currently undecided at my school, so the program I am following is basically general studies. The workload is easily manageable, the curriculum is easy to follow, the facilities are easy to use and find, but there are not many internship opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have had pretty good professors; most of them knew what they were teaching and were very knowledgable. The curriculum they established was easy to follow and understand. Registering for classes is a breeze. The workload really depends on you and how many classes you sign up for.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not taken an online course at this school, therefore I cannot rate them.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body is moderately diverse. Diversity rarely affects acceptance or challenges.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It could be better not everyone can get financial aid. So you have to apply for loans

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Everything is good if you try to put time in to the work.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The program aspect it is good. Most teachers do a great job with teaching. The curriculum is not that bad,sometimes the work load is to much. Most facilities are awesome and try to help with anything you ask about. There are not much internship and job because it is only a community college

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The curriculum is not bad at all but the wok load is sometimes too much for students.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The class sizes (up to 30) are the ideal sizes for my preference. My professors display their intelligence and competence to teach their courses along with a genuine passion and interest for their subjects. There is a sufficient amount of variety of courses that the school offers.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I was able to obtain a wonderful job on campus as a work-study in the Admissions office and I love it! I work with plenty of FCC alumni who enjoyed their experiences of previously attending FCC. The Career and Transfer Center works with students to find the best possible options for them, whether in the form of transfer universities or career opportunities.

College Senior

Online Courses: I have not taken an online course at FCC, not applicable.

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.
