Frederick Community College Policy and Procedures

Frederick Community College (FCC) is in the process of doing a complete review of all College Policies and Procedures. This project is well under way and has proven to be worthwhile and much needed. Under the direct leadership of the President, many members of the FCC community are doing the hard work involved in reviewing, revising, and editing multiple drafts of policies and procedures until they are sound, and accurately represent “best practice.” The Policy and Procedures web page is being redesigned to support this effort and to catalog policies and procedures as they are approved or repealed.
