Tuition & Fees

We're affordable! 
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.
