ASSET & In-State Tuition

Front Range Community College is an open-door institution which allows any student to attend, regardless of citizenship. A high school diploma or a specific grade point average (GPA) is not required. However, most students must take a placement exam to ensure they have the ability to benefit from the level of instruction offered at FRCC.
