Congratulations on your acceptance to Fulton-Montgomery Community College! Follow these easy step-by-step instructions to complete the enrollment process.
NOTE: If you are interested in Nursing or Radiologic Technology you must complete a separate application. Deadline dates and specific prerequisite requirements apply.
Step 1. Schedule your Placement Assessment Test
Call the Student Development Center 518-736-FMCC (3622) extension 8140 to schedule your placement test (What is this?)
Click and print your Placement Test Guide and Student Immunization Requirement form. Students residing outside Fulton and Montgomery Counties are required to submit a Certificate of Residence. Click here for more information.
Step 2. Reserve Housing – Commuter students skip to Step 3
All first-year full-time students who relocate to the region for the purposes of attending college at FM are required to live on campus during their first year of attendance, on a space available basis. Students must complete placement testing and pay their $300 Housing Fee before they can reserve housing. Please note, the $300 Housing Fee is non-refundable in the event the student cancels their enrollment. Click here for Fall 2015 Housing Request Form. Complete all housing documents and hand them into the Admissions office the day of your placement test. Housing forms cannot be mailed in advance of your placement test.
Step 3. Register for Classes
Upon completion of your placement test, an appointment to meet with an Academic Advisor to select your classes will be scheduled. Out-of-town students may have their advising appointment completed the same day as their placement test.
If you are a returning student or your placement testing has been waived (contact Admissions for information concerning criteria for placement test waiver) contact the Student Development Center at 518-736-FMCC (3622) extension 8140 to schedule an appointment to meet with Academic Advisor. Check out the class schedule by clicking here.
