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.
