Parents take full responsibility for child’s behavior & safety. At dismissal, students will be supervised until picked up. Please be prompt!

Students attending class on main campus not picked up by 12:15 pm will be escorted to the Conference Center (Building E) to await pickup. Students attending class at The Monroe Center not picked up by 12:15 pm will await pickup inside FCC's inner lobby at The Monroe Center.

All students who participate in classes at the Monroe Center must sign a waiver at frederick.edu/TAM. Waiver MUST be signed before any student can participate in classroom activities.

Dropping a Class & Refunds
If your child will not be able to attend a course, please notify us immediately. Students who choose to drop a class will receive a full refund provided that the request is received by the CEWD Registration Office the Monday prior to the start date of the class being dropped. Students may withdraw from a class by emailing the CEWD Registration Office at CERequest@frederick.edu. Email requests must be submitted from the email account on file. Requests for drops or refunds left on voicemail will not be processed. Refunds will not be made for non-attendance. Students requesting a refund for a dropped class outside of the full refund period must make the request in writing to the Associate Vice President of CEWD, and be accompanied by documentation supporting the student's request. Appropriate documentation may include electronic or hard-copy documents from medical providers, employers, child care providers, or others that can validate extenuating circumstances. The College reserves the right to approve or disapprove full or partial refund requests that are submitted outside of the full refund period. Contact us with questions at 301.624.2888.

Medications & Emergencies
FCC staff are not authorized to administer any non-emergency medication (prescription or non-prescription) to students. Emergency medications can be administered by FCC staff with written authorization from a physician and parent/guardian. Emergency medication includes a rescue inhaler or epi-pen. If medication must be taken while the student is on campus, the parent/guardian is responsible for coming to campus to administer the medication. 

In emergencies requiring immediate medical attention, your child will be taken to the nearest hospital emergency room. Your signature below authorizes the responsible person at Frederick Community College to have your child transported to that hospital.
