MICUA Matters Spring 2018
Frederick Community College (FCC) and Mount St. Mary’s University (MSMU) have announced a new agreement to provide FCC graduates a tuition reduction for programs at the MSMU Frederick Campus beginning in fall 2018.
Under the memorandum of understanding, FCC graduates will receive 20 percent off their tuition for the following undergraduate programs held at the MSMU Frederick Campus and through Graduate, Continuing, and Professional Studies: business administration, criminal justice, accounting, and human services. FCC currently has articulation agreements for many programs offered at the MSMU main campus, including psychology, biology, cybersecurity, fine arts/music, philosophy, theology, communications, history, criminal justice, political science, and English.
“Mount St. Mary’s University has proudly served adult students in the Frederick community for almost 20 years,” said Carol Z. Rinkoff, Ph.D., MSMU’s Dean of Graduate, Continuing and Professional Studies. “We are honored to offer tuition reduction to successful FCC graduates who wish to continue their academic journey with a bachelor’s degree at the Mount.”
MSMU will accept up to 75 total credits from FCC students upon transfer. MSMU provides suggested transfer course guides for all of its Frederick Campus programs to help students with course selection. The agreement also allows a student to receive the same reduced tuition rate for any future graduate degree enrollment if the student enrolls in the graduate program directly after completing an undergraduate degree program.
“Both our institutions prioritize quality education and this new agreement allows FCC graduates to complete their undergraduate degree while staying in Frederick,” FCC President Elizabeth Burmaster said.
