FCC Enrollment

Students at Frederick Community College walk through the Student Center on Thursday morning. The school has reported an 8% increase in enrollment numbers this year compared to last year.

Frederick Community College’s enrollment numbers this semester show the beginnings of a rebound from pandemic-related drops, but officials this week expressed concern about an ongoing decline in students older than 18.

Overall, FCC’s enrollment is up about 8% this year compared to where it was in the fall of 2021, when it reached its lowest point in recent years.
