Student Tuition & Fees

Tuition & Fees
Continuing Education and Workforce Development tuition varies by program. Additional program and material fees may apply. Please see individual course descriptions for details.

Student Per-Term Fee
Each student is assessed a one-time $8 annual fee. This fee is due at the time of registration.

Maryland students residing outside of Frederick County are charged an additional $5 fee per course. Students residing outside the state of Maryland are charged an additional $10 per course.
Payment Options

Accepted Forms of Payment
FCC accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and debit card payments on this website for payment of classes. To pay by cash, check or money order, complete a Registration Form and visit us on campus in the CEWD Registration Office in the Student Center, Room H105, at 7932 Opossumtown Pike in Frederick, MD.

Interest-Free Payment Plan
Select CEWD programs (noted below) accept payment by way of an Interest-free Tuition Payment Plan whereby participants authorize the FCC payment plan provider to collect a pre-determined monthly payment from a checking account, debit card or credit card. This arrangement provides the option to pay tuition in smaller monthly installments versus paying the entire amount due at the beginning of the program. Students electing to participate in the payment plan provide a $25 non-refundable enrollment fee and pre-authorize FCC to collect the pre-determined payment each month and apply the funds to the student's remaining amount due for the plan. To learn more, call 301.624.2888 or email
