5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school I attend was extremely understanding and giving with financial aid.

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.

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

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am receiving an education that is more than worth the tuition that I paid. I did not expect to gain such memorable and positive experiences at FCC, and I was able to pay off all my tuition and expenses so far! The Financial Aid office could have more attendants assisting with people because the wait time has usually been for a little while. One tip for getting financial aid at FCC is to always check for scholarship opportunities, whether they are posted on the website or anywhere on campus, because there is money that is waiting to be awarded to students. All students have to do is look for them and apply.

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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. The Hope Credit and Lifelong Learning Tax Credits are available to help families who are funding educational expenses. Employer education benefits are for employees who may receive education benefits from their jobs.
