Resources for parents of future or current students of FM.

 
 

Congratulations!

Your child has decided to pursue a college education.  At FM, we strive to provide a solid education for students that prepares them for their next steps in life, as adults.  Whether your child has decided to pursue a two-year associates degree designed to enter the workplace upon completion, or a program  of study that is designed for transfer to a four-year college, by choosing FM, your child has made a sound choice.  We want to make you aware of some of the opportunities your child can take advantage of as a FM student.

Types of Degrees

There are two types of Associates degrees that can be pursued at FM. The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) is designed for the student who wishes to study for two years, and then enter the workplace. The Associate of Science (A.S) or Associate of Arts (A.A) degree is designed with transfer in mind. Most students who attend FM with the goal of transferring to another college choose this option.

Academic Advising

FM uses a “center” approach to academic advising.  Students, after acceptance, are introduced to the Student Development Center, which houses our academic advising team.  Students can work with any advisor they wish, and may change advisors at any time throughout their education.  Advisors assist students in the areas of establishing a schedule of classes, transfer opportunities, as well as career exploration opportunities.

Tutoring

Many students take advantage of tutoring services, located in our Learning Center in the Evans Library.  Students may seek peer tutoring or professional tutoring, and there is no additional charge for these services.  If your child is struggling in a subject area or just needs someone to read over an essay, the Learning Center at the Evans Library is the place to go.

Financing a College Education

FM is a very affordable option.  Our financial aid team is ready to assist with any questions you might have regarding paying for college.

Student Involvement

Many students at FM choose to become involved.  There are many ways to engage at a community college.  We offer 31 student clubs and organizations, we have a very active Student Government Association and Student Activities Office.  We also offer a Student Ambassador program, where students can assist with campus tours and special events on campus.  If your child is interested in becoming involved, suggest they stop by the Student Activities Office in the College Union building.

Athletics

FM is part of the National Junior College Athletic Association and we offer seven different competitive sports teams. They are Baseball, Softball, Volleyball, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Men’s and Women’s Basketball.  Our teams are called the Raiders. Visit our Athletics section for more information about athletics and check out the schedules for games. Come and see the Raiders in action.

Safety and Security

This is a topic that many parents are concerned about. FM has a full-service Office of Public Safety, located in the Physical Education Building of our campus. Our trained officers patrol the campus and campus housing to insure the safety of our students and college community.
