What Did You Miss? Here Is a Quick Guide to Being an FSC Student

It's a great time to #BeARam! Here is a quick guide to everything you may need right at your fingertips.

Be in the Know

The most important thing to being an FSC student is to always be in the know. Ensure your contact information is up-to-date and check to make sure you are signed up to receive text message notifications from the College to receive important need-to-know information, including weather emergencies, important deadlines, and other essential items.

Be Ready

When coming back to campus, we want you to be ready to go with all the essential information you need for the semester: 

  • Technology Checklist – This is the place to find everything you need to know about your technology needs and services before and during your arrival on campus. This includes:
    • Email
    • myFSC
    • Wi-fi Access on Campus
    • OASIS
    • Brightspace
    • And much more
  • The FSC Bookstore– Gear up with your favorite FSC gear and grab your textbooks in advance for your classes next semester. 
  • Campus Dining – Fuel up with meals for the week and know where you need to go to grab them.  

Be $mart

Whether you are looking for financial aid or scholarship opportunities, we can help you find the best options and build an award package tailored to meet your needs. The Office of Financial Aid can provide you with information about financial support to help pay for College and assist you with the financial aid process. The Office of Student Accounts can provide you with information about tuition and fees and payment plan options. 

Be Prepared

Our goal is to provide all students with the most comprehensive set of services to ensure their success both inside and outside of the classroom. These services support diverse populations, including resident, transfer, commuter, non-traditional, disabled, under-represented, and military veteran students.

Be Healthy

The health and wellness of our campus community is of utmost importance. Be sure to take care of yourself in every way on campus. Below is a list of offices to help you at FSC:


  • Nold Hall Weight Room - The Weight Room is open to all Faculty, Staff, and Students of Farmingdale State who purchase a membership. The fee is $50 per semester or $100 per calendar year.

Be Safe

Your safety is a top priority for the College. University Police is committed to providing a safe, secure, and pleasant environment for students, staff, and visitors. Farmingdale State College was named the 25th safest campus in the US in 2016. 

Be Successful

The Nexus Center is a specialized department solely dedicated to connecting students and grads to jobs, internships, career development, applied learning, and other opportunities. Our goal is to support students individually throughout their education at Farmingdale and beyond.
