Based in Norwood, MA, FINE Mortuary College is a private, Two Year College that trains tomorrow’s industry leaders.   Initially founded as the Funeral Institute of the North East in 1996, the school was started with the backing of several funeral professionals interested in promoting excellence in education in funeral service. The founders were determined to emphasize comprehensive practical experience and excellent academic training, 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 grown from 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 continued to expand, adding more funeral professionals to the faculty and expanding the campus, including additional classroom space and student interactive learning space that duplicates the funeral home experience.
