Here’s the Latest News!

Thank you for your interest in ILR 55+, a Continuing Education & Workforce Development program, at Frederick Community College. FCC is working to increase the number of in-person classes while continuing to comply with public health and safety standards. ILR 55+ Summer Registration is now open with classes available online, on campus and off campus this summer. Please see individual class descriptions for complete details.

In-Person Classes
Face-to-Face and hybrid classes meet in-person and are taught at designated locations during scheduled times. After registering for one of these classes, in addition to a registration confirmation, participants will receive an informative email with details about attending class(es). On main campus and at the Monroe Center, limited physical access to buildings, classrooms, labs, and College offices continues. Specific protocols are in place to ensure the safety of students, employees, and community members. Click below to learn more.


Online Classes Tutorials Available
If you’re interested in taking an ILR or Lifelong Learning course this semester, but have questions about how an online course will work, you can register for one of our free 30-minute tutorial sessions. During the online session, you’ll be connected with one of our staff members, as well as other curious students, to help familiarize you with the online platform and work out any issues before deciding to register for an online course.

Online Classes Terminology
The College employs terminology to distinguish between different online learning formats – the ways in which students and instructors meet in online environments. The way you register, access, and participate in ILR online classes remains the same as on campus and off campus classes. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (301) 846-2561 or email
