Advanced Pathway College Credit Program

Fulton-Montgomery Community College and has entered into an exclusive articulation agreement designed to enhance educational and career opportunities for Fonda-Fultonville and Mayfield high school students.

The Advanced Pathway College Credit Program is a free program that allows students to earn up to 25 articulated credits at FM that can be applied toward any academic program offered by the institution. Students and families can save nearly $6000 in annual tuition costs before graduating from high school.  With this accelerated path, students have the potential to complete a two-year degree in a short period of time.  This will allow a student to meet his or her education and career goals earlier.

Students enrolled in designated high school courses at Fonda-Fultonville and Mayfield who earn an 85 or better and have the recommendation of their high school teacher will be eligible for FM Advanced Pathway Credit upon enrollment in a program and registration of college courses at FM.  FM must be the first college the student attends following high graduation to be eligible for the Advanced Pathway Credits. The student has two years following high school graduation to apply for FM Advanced Pathway Credit. No assurance is given that Advanced Pathway College Credit awarded through this agreement will transfer to any other post-secondary institution.

The goals of the Advanced Pathway College Credit Program:

  • increase completion in college programs;
  • improve the preparedness of incoming freshman to handle college-level materials and schedule; and
  • enhance opportunities for students to take more rigorous, accelerated, and/or advanced work.

The Advanced Pathway College Credit Program allows students to:

  • experience increased levels of knowledge and expertise prior to high school graduation;
  • have more flexible options in college course selection; and
  • achieve enhanced abilities when graduating with a two-year degree.

The expectation is that the students in the Advanced Pathway College Credit Program will be better able to compete when entering the workforce or applying for additional education.
