Admissions

Let us take the mystery out of the enrollment process.

 

FAQ

Is it ok if I don’t have ACT or SAT scores?

Absolutely. We do not require ACT or SAT scores. If you decide to transfer to another college after FMCC, they will look at your FMCC transcript not a one-time list of ACT or SAT scores.

Can I transfer my courses anywhere?

It is up to the transfer institution which credits they will accept after they review your transcript. Most colleges will only accept transfer credit if a grade of C or better is earned. Typically, more credits transfer from our A.A. and A.S. programs than from our A.A.S. programs.

Can I transfer courses to FMCC?

YES, again like most colleges, we don’t accept grades of D or below.

I’ve been out of school for 15 years, do you think I can still learn?

Absolutely. In fact more than 40% of our students are over the age of 25. Adult students are very motivated and conscientious.

Do you have a payment plan?

Yes we do. Please contact the Bursar’s Office for more information at (518) 736-FMCC x8601.

If I need extra help with math or writing can you provide it?

Yes. We have free tutoring (help) available everyday. We actually have a writing lab and a math lab dedicated to these two areas.

Is it normal to feel afraid of college courses?

YES. Everyone is somewhat afraid. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 17, 27, 37, or 47! It is normal to fear the unknown. We pride ourselves at FMCC on helping you adjust.

Can I take just one course at a time?

YES

Are you part of the State University of New York?

YES

Can you help me with my application?

YES, feel free to contact the Admissions Office.
