University System of Maryland Chancellor William E. “Brit” Kirwan announced in June Frostburg State University’s plans to close its Frederick Center at the end of 2004. The decision was made to coincide with the opening of the new USM Center in Hagerstown, slated for January 2005.
“Frostburg State University has enjoyed serving students at various sites in Frederick since 1972. However, in light of the opening of the new USM Center in Hagerstown, we can be more efficient and effective by closing our Frederick Center,” said FSU President Dr. Catherine R. Gira. “The new USM Center will better serve the total educational needs of students in Frederick and the surrounding region.”
The current Frederick Center, located in Westview Office Court, opened in 1990 as a satellite of FSU’s Hagerstown Center. The present enrollment is nearly 200 students, who can earn a Master of Business Administration degree or baccalaureate degrees in justice studies or business.
Academic deans will be in touch with FSU Frederick Center students by the end of this summer to discuss the students’ courses of study and their future options.
Any student with questions is urged to call FSU Associate Provost Dr. John Bowman at 301-687-4211.
