Counseling Services

The Counseling & Advising office can help with “transition-to-college” issues and personal issues affecting your ability to succeed in class. You can arrange an appointment with a counselor by calling 301.846.2471 or 301.846.2625 TDD.

Counselors serve as a resource for students in crisis; however, students who have on-going, long-term, or therapeutic counseling needs are referred to agencies in the community. Contact information for some Frederick County counseling resources is listed below:
New Student Advising
Prospective students who are considering attending FCC should complete the Steps for Admission which includes applying to the College; submitting SAT/ACT scores or taking placement tests; and submitting high school or prior college transcripts.
Advising for Current Students
Current students are those who have already had their initial meeting with an advisor, or who have already attended at least one class at FCC. Students who have not attended academic courses for two years or longer will need to reapply to FCC.
Find your advisor
Your advisor is determined by your participation in a specialized program or by your major.
