Fulton-Montgomery Community College offers high school seniors an option to study at the College on a part-time or full-time basis as an Early Admit student. This program allows qualified seniors the opportunity to fulfill high school graduation requirements through completed college credit. FM Admissions Counselors work collaboratively with your high school guidance office to help you complete the early admission application process and ensure you are enrolled in all the courses needed to fulfill your high school requirements.
The available options for this program are as follows:
Seniors in the top half of their high school class who are recommended by their guidance counselor or high school principal may study in this program.
Seniors, who are not in the top half of their class and who are recommended by their guidance counselor or principal, may apply for the Early Admit Exploratory program at the College, taking courses which have no effect upon high school graduation requirements.
Early Admit Students may enroll for full-time or part-time study. Early Admit Students may take all classes at FM or enroll for courses at their high school as well as FM.
The application process is as follows:
- High School Juniors complete the Early Admission Program Application for Admission and submit it to their guidance counselor. The application is available in high school guidance offices.
- The guidance counselor completes the application and provides the College with an official high school transcript.
- The Admissions Office acts on the application and sends a decision letter to the student.
Full-time (12 or more credits) may apply for financial aid by completing the FAFSA. Early Admit Students are eligible for TAP (Tuition Assistance Program) only.
