Concurrent Enrollment for FRCC due 11/13

Update Falcons! The Multimedia Graphic Design Class (MGD 143) had to be cancelled because FRCC couldn’t get an instructor for the course. And while that is a big disappointment, there are still four other classes you can take right here on campus to get college and high school credit.
