Tuition & Fees

You're smart to invest in your future at FCC. Our tuition and fees are about half of what they are at four-year public colleges in Maryland. We'll help you find a variety of financial aid and clearly explain the federal government's Hope Scholarship tax credit and our deferred tuition plan.

We're affordable! 

Amounts include tuition, instructional materials fee ($11.40/credit), student activity fee ($2.15/credit, 10 credit maximum), capital fee ($3.35/credit), technology fee ($2.20/credit) and the comprehensive registration fee ($55.00 per semester). Costs for noncredit continuing education classes vary.
