New Student and Family Welcome Day

Welcome to Frederick Community College! 


New Student and Family Welcome Day is a FUN and FREE program and a partner program to our Required Orientation Advising Registration (ROAR). It is a chance to share important information that will be helpful as you prepare for your first week of classes. We will share tips to be successful, helpful resources and services, and give you things to think about for your short-term and long-term goals. Attendees will also have a chance to ask questions on anything you need help with to begin classes. There will be a chance to win fun prizes and interact with other students, staff, and faculty. You can also get your photo ID and parking pass.
Make plans to visit the bookstore for school supplies, and the latest FCC gear. If you ordered your books online prior to midnight Wednesday August 16th you can pick up your order.
