Tuition & Financial Aid

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Complete fafsa! I used federal loans to help pay for college.

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

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.

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.

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.
