1Apply

Use the online application to apply for admission to FCC. FCC operates with open admissions by offering admittance to all students who apply to the College. After you apply, you will receive a letter in the mail which contains your student ID number and your email username that will allow you to access your online myFCC account. You will need this information for each step of the enrollment process.
 
Apply for scholarships through the FCC Foundation.

Visit Cost & Financial Aid for information about paying your bill and applying for financial aid.

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your qualifications for federal and state aid, institutional grants, work study options, and student loans. Federal financial aid is available for students enrolled in the A.A.S. Emergency Management Degree for required Gen Ed Core and Elective courses taken at FCC. Financial Aid is not available for the fee to convert FEMA Independent Study courses to college credit or for the fee for Emergency Management EMGT courses.
 
View the enrollment checklist for Emergency Management students.

Students intending to complete Gen Ed Core and Elective courses at FCC should review the following placement testing information.

Placement Testing
 
Recognizing that not everyone arrives with the same educational background, and not everyone is ready for the same level of math and English classes, there are a few things you will need to do to help us to successfully place you academically.
 
To comply with the Maryland College and Career Readiness Act of 2013 and the Academic Placement and Assessment Procedure of FCC, the College requires that:
 
  • Upon entering the College, all new students, unless otherwise exempted, must complete all mathematics, reading, writing, and skills placement tests before enrolling in developmental or credit courses.
  • Upon entering the College, all new students who are seeking a degree must file a degree plan that is developed in consultation with an academic advisor.
  • Upon reaching 24 credits, all new students must have completed developmental courses and the first college-level English and math courses required by their degree plan.

If you are seeking non-credit continuing education courses for professional development, skill building, or personal enrichment, visit Continuing Education & Workforce Development (CEWD) Registration.

2Submit Transcripts

Submit official transcripts with previous course work from college, military, EMS, Fire and/or Police experience. Ensure official transcripts or letters are mailed from the institution or training facility directly to FCC:

Frederick Community College
Registration and Records Office
7932 Opossumtown Pike
Frederick, MD 21702
 
Transcript evaluations are conducted in the FCC Registration and Records Office, and results appear in PeopleSoft student accounts online in approximately 4 weeks.
 
Request review and pre-approval for courses completed at an institution other than FCC using the FCC Permission to Enroll: Verification of Transferability form.

3Test

All new students must complete placement tests in mathematics, reading, writing, and skills placement before enrolling in developmental or credit courses. In special circumstances, the College may exempt placement test requirements for students with previous college credits, grades, or test scores that meet specific criteria.

In order to determine if you need to take placement tests you will need to submit the following documents:
  1. High school transcript and previous college transcripts
  2. College entrance exam scores from SAT and/or ACT
  3. Advanced Placement (AP) test scores and International Baccalaureate (IB) test scores

These documents will determine which placement tests you are required to take, the courses you should register for, and/or the courses you are eligible to receive credit for based on previous grades or scores.
 
FCC administers the ACCUPLACER test to ensure the appropriate placement level for all new students. Students may take the ACCUPLACER test at a local college and have scores transmitted directly to the FCC Testing Center. Scores may be faxed to 240.629.7809 or emailed to the FCC Testing Center. Scores must be no more than two years old and must be faxed or emailed to the FCC Testing Center directly from the college where the test was administered.

Students are advised to prepare for the ACCUPLACER test as they would any other exam to confirm accurate placement by academic skill level. For more information about the ACCUPLACER and academic placement and assessment, visit the Testing Center.

To be exempt from the ACCUPLACER, you need to have earned the following scores within the past five years:

SAT Score
  • Reading: 480
  • Math: 530
ACT Score
  • English: 21
  • Reading: 21
  • Math: 21
AP Score
  • English Language & Composition: 3 or better
  • English Literature & Composition: 3 or better
  • Calculus or Statistics: 3 or better
IB Score
  • Language: A
  • Literature: SL or HL and/or Language A
  • Language & Literature: SL or HL
  • Mathematics: SL or HL and/or Further Math

4See Advisor

Send an email to Emergency Management to inform us you have applied to MACEM&PS' Emergency Management program. An Emergency Management advisor will contact you to schedule a 20-minute teleconference advising session to prepare you for success at FCC.
 
New credit students seeking a degree are required to consult an advisor to develop a degree plan. New students should schedule a consultation after completing the admissions and testing steps, and activating a myFCC account.
 
Dual enrollment and transfer students should submit official college transcripts from previous institutions to the Registration & Records Office for official transfer credit evaluation prior to meeting with an academic advisor.
 
Walk-in advising is available in the Counseling & Advising Office. You can also send a message to emailadvising via your myFCC email account. When you meet with an advisor, be sure to bring your photo ID and any documents that might be helpful (unofficial transcripts, test results, ACT/SAT scores).
 
For more information about academic planning and advising, see Counseling & Advising.

10Complete Internship

Students pursuing an Emergency Management Associate of Applied Science Degree via the Track I: FEMA Independent Study Pathway are required to complete INTR 103, a 3-credit internship course. The internship, requiring a minimum of 135 hours, may be completed during an 8-week (17 hours/week) or 15-week (9 hours/week) session of a pre-determined semester.
 
Students may register for INTR 103 after successful completion of EMGT 115, EMGT 125, EMGT 135, and EMGT 215. Be sure to review the Internship Handbook. Eligible students must contact the program manager to schedule an internship planning meeting. After the planning meeting, students arrange an internship with a local emergency management entity: a business, municipality, state or federal level agency/office. Following preliminary arrangements, students are required to submit an internship plan to the program manager to receive approval and complete course registration.
 
Internships must entail Emergency Management experience in a field unrelated to previous or current experience. The internship cannot be performed as part of your normal duty and/or current employment. Students with previous or current emergency management experience are not exempt from completing this required course.

Guided Pathway to Success (GPS)
Suggested schedules map your path to degree completion. Full-time student: Follow the green semester blocks in order. Part-time student: Follow the blue course sequence at your own pace. Students should meet with an advisor each semester to carefully select and sequence courses based on their specific academic goals and interests.

Students in the Track I pathway often have General Education transfer credit from other colleges or universities, which may allow them to address core requirements faster, or at different times, than shown in this sequence. Further, the 5-week online format of the listed EMGT courses allows potential program completion much more rapidly than listed here, and out of sequence with traditional Gen Ed coursework. It is strongly recommended that all students work with a program advisor each semester to carefully select and sequence courses in the most advantageous fashion for their unique circumstances.

Students who take fewer than 15 credits each semester or who require developmental English or math coursework will need additional semesters to complete their degrees. Summer and January term classes may help students to make faster progress. General Education CORE courses can often be taken in any semester. One course must be designated as a Cultural Competence course. A minimum of nine credits must be taken at the 200 level. Refer to the college catalog for course details and the list of General Education and Cultural Competence classes.

Students are strongly recommended to consult an FCC advisor to select elective courses. Students planning to transfer may also reference ARTSYS, the Maryland Articulation System.

Completion of prerequisite listed FEMA coursework (via FEMA Independent Study (IS) courses and emstudy.com credit conversion) is necessary before enrolling in EMGT courses. EMGT 115, EMGT 125, EMGT 135, EMGT 215, EMGT 225, and EMGT 235 are requirements; completion of listed FEMA IS courses will not result by itself in a degree.
