September 15, 2011 — Fall Fast Track – Late Start Schedule
Due to the unforeseen natural disasters which occurred just prior to the start of Fulton-Montgomery Community College’s fall semester, FM President Dr. Dustin Swanger, with the support of the College’s Board of Trustees, is initiating the College’s first ever late start semester.
“Our community and its members have suffered horrific circumstances these past few weeks,” states Dr. Swanger. “Although the late start semester is open to anyone, I am concerned that a number of potential students who, out of necessity due to the recent floods, hurricane, and tornado have postponed their education. This is unfortunate as many people don’t have four months to wait for our next semester to start. We want to make it clear that FM is here for our community. We don’t want anyone to give up hope on their education, and that is why FM has initiated a late start semester to begin Tuesday, October 11.”
According to President Swanger, the late start semester will be an entire semester wrapped up in ten weeks enabling students to fulfill core requirements common to many of the College’s programs such as English, Liberal Arts, Humanities, Science, and Social Science. Late start classes are being offered as web-based (online), blended (combination of online and in a classroom), or in the classroom. A full list of course offerings can be viewed on the College’s website at fmcc.edu.
Whether you were a victim of the devastating weather or if you have just decided to start your education, the late start semester is open to everyone. Those wishing to enroll in FM’s late start semester should contact the Admissions Office at (518) 736-FMCC (3622), x8301 or visit Admissions staff located in the Administration Building at 2805 State Highway 67, Johnstown; no appointment is necessary.
“We are an educational institution. Our students come first,” says Dr. Swanger. “If we can assist those who have had to postpone their dream of an education due to natural disasters, we will continue to make every effort we can to keep that dream alive for them.”
