  2. Contact any colleges you are considering to determine if they will accept the credit.
  3. Complete the Online Application for College in the High School. http://www.fmcc.edu/admissions/college-high-school/application-process/

  1. If you live in a county other than Fulton or Montgomery, you must submit a Certificate of Residence form in order to qualify for the in-state tuition rate. There are different instructions (below) depending on the county in which you reside.

CERTIFICATE OF RESIDENCE INSTRUCTIONS:

You MUST complete this step if you live outside of Fulton or Montgomery counties to qualify for the New York State resident rate for tuition.

Bring the Certificate of Residence application and proof of identification and address to a notary public, who will witness your signature and put a notary stamp on the form. Your high school may have a notary in the school office; check with your teacher. Bring the form to your county Treasurer’s Office to obtain proof of residence issued by your county.

WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND AFTER I SUBMIT MY APPLICATION FOR COLLEGE CREDIT?

If you enroll for college credit and then change your mind, you must notify FM to cancel your college enrollment. The date you notify FM will determine if you will be responsible for payment.
