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 the placement/assessment and pay their $300 Housing Fee before they can reserve housing.

Step 3. Register for Classes
Upon completion of your placement/assessment, 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/assessment.
If you are a returning student or your placement/assessment 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.
