If you've graduated from an accredited high school, or have a high school equivalency diploma, you're encouraged to apply. And if you haven't completed high school, we have options for gaining high school equivalency requirements.

It's Never Too Late to Learn

Earn a degree or credential quickly and affordably. Courses at FLCC are well-suited for adult learners who may need some extra flexibility while earning a college degree. We offer several programs that can help you start a new career or earn a promotion in your current field. You can enroll in any of our programs part-time, so you can earn a college degree — even if you work full-time.

Earn Credit for Prior Education

Your prior education and life experiences could help you reach your goals faster. FLCC awards transfer credits for a variety of situations including college courses, military service, work experience, noncredit programs, and professional accomplishments.

Professional Guidance and Support

Returning to school after years in the workforce requires learning how to be a student all over again. FLCC has a team of experts ready to assist you with this transition. Our writing and math tutors, research librarians, and academic success coaches are eager to provide tools that help you achieve your goals. We even have an on-campus child care center that gives parents some much-needed time to focus on their studies.

You've Made a Great Choice to Transition to FLCC

Our transfer students love FLCC's small classes, personalized attention, and thriving campus community. While transferring from one college to another can sometimes present certain challenges, FLCC simplifies the process and works hard to ensure you get the most out of your previous college credits.

Earn Credit for Prior Education

If you are transferring from another SUNY college or university, many of your courses will count directly toward our degree and graduation requirements. Our admissions team will also review any college credits earned outside the SUNY system to assess how many credits you can transfer into your new program.

Welcome Back!

FLCC is here to get you back on track in your former program or help you get started with a new one. Our team of admissions counselors, academic advisors, and financial aid specialists are eager to support your decision.

Ready to Get Started?

  • Returning within 6 years or less? That's great. You simply need to complete a re-matriculation form. It's that easy.
  • Returning after more than 6 years away? Not a problem. You can reapply to FLCC and speak with an admissions counselor about how many of your earlier college credits carry forward.

We Have Two Programs Just for You

FLCC offers high school and homeschool students the opportunity to get a head start with college through our early enrollment programs.

Take College Classes at Your Current High School

The Gemini program gives you the opportunity to earn college credit during your regular school day without ever leaving your high school. To enroll in Gemini classes, you must be a junior or senior in high school. The college credits you earn can be applied to an FLCC degree or transferred to another college or university once you graduate from high school.

Talk to your high school counselor about enrolling in the program, or review the Gemini Student Guide with your family to learn more about this opportunity.

Take College Classes Online or at FLCC

The Early College Scholars program invites high school juniors and seniors to complete FLCC courses online or at one of our four campus locations in Canandaigua, Victor, Newark, or Geneva. You'll learn from experienced FLCC instructors, get a taste of college life, and become acclimated to the campus setting.

Early College Scholars receive a scholarship that covers a portion of their part-time in-state tuition. Funding is available for all high school and home school students who meet the program eligibility requirements.

Skip the Application Process

We make it easy for life-long learners to enroll in FLCC courses, both online and in-person. You may need to complete a prerequisite course, retake a class, update your resume with new skills, or dive into a topic that interests you. No matter the reason, you'll be able to apply your credits toward an FLCC degree or a degree at another college.

Flexible Learning All Year Long

We offer classes during the traditional fall and spring semesters, as well as over winter and summer break — providing access to quality classes on a schedule that works for you.

A Recognized Military Friendly School Since 2014

FLCC has received the Military Friendly School designation from VIQTORY every year since 2014, including a gold level distinction in 2022. We appreciate the service veterans provide to our country and are committed to making your transition from the military to the classroom a successful one.

Earn College Credit for Military Service

Veterans can save time and money by earning college credit for their military service and training. We can assist you in determining to what extent your service has advanced your education during a personalized visit.

Veteran Education Benefits

If you are a veteran — or a survivor or dependent of a veteran — you may be eligible for federal education benefits through the GI Bill. FLCC can help you apply for these benefits and connect you with job placement opportunities, tutor support, and other veterans services to get you started on the right foot.
