History

Originally established in 1996, FINE Mortuary College, LLC began as the Funeral Institute of the North East.

Our institute was founded with the backing of several funeral professionals interested in expanding and promoting excellence in education in funeral service. The founders were determined to emphasize a comprehensive and practical experience with excellent academic training that’s responsive to the needs of the fast-changing funeral profession.

FMC became authorized to grant an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Funeral Service in June 2001. The student body has steadily from grown seven in 1996 to over 100 by 2017. In 1999, FMC became eligible to provide Federal Financial Aid for those students who qualify.

In March of 2014, FMC was purchased by GLC Solutions, LLC, an education management company. The college has had continued growth and enrolment under GLC, with continued involvement in the funeral community.
