Front Range Community College or FRCC was the first community college created by the State Board for Community Colleges in 1969. It is the largest community college in Colorado and has a good reputation for its innovative programs and for helping students to achieve success in the real world or in a 4 year college of their choice.
Students can attend one of the several Front Range Community Colleges including Boulder County, Larimer, Westminster, or Brighton. There are also opportunities to take classes online.
Students can choose to take classes to earn a certificate in over 100 programs including welding and emergency medical services. For more information on the degree and certificate programs, check out this link http://www.frontrange.edu/Academics/Fields-of-Study/.
Some students take classes at Front Range Community College, but anticipate transferring to a four year college. These students usually transfer to Colorado State, Metropolitan State College at Denver, or The University of Colorado at Boulder. FRCC has agreements with other colleges which will also accept their college courses. By taking courses at FRCC before transferring to a four year college, students can save a great deal of money.
Tuition and fees vary from campus to campus as well as from program to program. Tuition for out of state residents is more than the tuition rate for Colorado residents. For more information on tuition and fees check out the website at http://www.frontrange.edu/Parents-and-Families/Tuition-and-Fees/. Colorado residents are eligible for the Colorado Opportunity Fund scholarship to help reduce their tuition costs. Students wanting to take advantage of this scholarship need to sign up for the program.

Students at FRCC are encouraged to take advantage of the many services offered by the college which help students to succeed. These include tutoring services, counseling, and career resources. These services can help students to succeed in college as well as help them to get a job during the summer, after school, or after graduation. Students can also take advantage of the learning support system set up for the college to help support disabled students, veterans, single parent students, and other students with unique situations. Child care is also available at the Larimer campus.
