Early Admission Program


Let us take the mystery out of the enrollment process.


Early Admission Program

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 Early Admission Nursing Prep program helps high school seniors complete prerequisite classes needed to be a nursing applicant.  It also serves as an introduction to the rigor of college classes and the pace of a semester schedule.

  • High school senior, ranked in the top half of your class
  • Completed Algebra I with a 75% or higher
