Pay for Classes
FCC offers three payment options:
- Pay in full online through PeopleSoft or in person at Student Accounts. Partial payments will not save your seat.
- Sign up for a deferred payment plan through PeopleSoft. This will divide your tuition bill into monthly payments automatically using a credit card, checking, or savings account.
- Financial Aid must exceed tuition and fees and be awarded on your PeopleSoft account prior to the payment deadline to save your seat. Sign up for the Pending Aid Payment Plan through PeopleSoft while your financial aid is being processed.
Visit frederick.edu/studentaccounts for a complete list of payment due dates.
Most refunds are processed by BankMobile. New students will receive a refund selection kit by mail (watch for the green envelope).
