Transfer Success

"Students can transfer in almost any field, from engineering to psychology to nursing, Most importantly, we want people to know that FRCC students do just as well at four-year schools as the students who start there – and in many cases better. In fact, FRCC has one of the top success rates for our transfer students of any community college in the country.”
