Welcome to the new student orientation website!
All new students planning to attend FCC for their first college experience* will participate in the ROAR program.
*Note: If you will be a high school student (non-graduate) during the 2021-2022 school year, you will not participate in ROAR until after you graduate. If you will be a high school student, and will be taking FCC classes on our campus or taking FCC classes on your high school campus, FCC's Dual Enrollment program will allow you to earn your high school diploma and college credits simultaneously.
To make sure you are ready to ROAR… you must do the following:
Apply for Admission
- If you have not applied yet, apply now for admission.
- If you were previously a dual enrollment or open campus student, please reapply as a degree seeking student.
