Tuition & Payments
Thank you for your interest in Continuing Education and Workforce Development (CEWD) at Frederick Community College. Important information regarding tuition & fees, payment and more is detailed below.
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.
Out-of-County/State Per-Course Fees
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.
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 Conference Center (E113) at 7932 Opossumtown Pike in Frederick, MD.
Interest-Free Payment Plan
Select Continuing Education & Workforce Development 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 it to the student's remaining amount due for the plan.

Cancellations, Withdrawals, Transfers & Refunds
College Course Cancellations
If a course is canceled by the college, 100% of applicable tuition and fees will be refunded to students or students may choose to have the refund transferred to an alternate class.
Students may withdraw from a class and receive a full refund - or apply the payment toward the cost of a future alternative class - by completing the Drop section of a Drop/Transfer Form and submitting the form, or a signed written request, to CEWD at least one (1) business day prior to the start of the class. Please note: Kids and Teens on Campus Withdrawal requests must be received at least two (2) business days in advance of the class start date in order to receive a full refund. Some classes have a longer period within which a drop request must be made prior to the class start date. Those classes with aq requirement to drop earlier than two (2) business days before the start date in order to receive a full refund will provide the drop period in the class information and/or refund policy link contained in the shopping cart. Requests may be submitted to CERequest@frederick.edu, sent by fax to 301-624-2749 or provided in person to CEWD staff in the CEWD Registration Office in the FCC Conference Center at 7932 Opossumtown Pike in Frederick, MD.

Withdrawal & Transfer Exceptions
Within one business day prior to the start of class, or after the class has started, withdrawal and transfer requests - as well as supporting documentation* validating extenuating circumstances – may be submitted for consideration in writing to the Vice President of Continuing Education & Workforce Development. The College reserves the right to approve or disapprove full or partial refund and transfer requests submitted less than one business day before the start of a class. This same exception policy applies to Kids and Teens on Campus requests submitted less than two (2) business days prior to the start of the class. Students for which such a request is approved will be withdrawn from classes and a refund or transfer of funds will be provided. *Documentation may include electronic or hard-copy documents from medical providers, employers, child care providers or similar sources.
If the original form of payment was a credit or debit card, the refund will be applied back to the same credit or debit card account. If the original form of payment was cash, a check or a money, the refund will be mailed to the address on record within 10 to 14 business days from the class drop date. Please note, classes co-listed within the academic credit program are subject to the credit refund schedule and procedures.
