BCPS and CCBC partner to provide high school students with free college tuition
Starting this summer, Baltimore County Public School (BCPS) high school students can take unlimited classes at Community College of Baltimore County for free.
The Maryland State Department of Education has allocated funds to school systems to increase student access to college and career readiness programs, particularly dual enrollment, vocational education and technical and advanced level courses.
“We’re excited about this partnership, which allows BCPS students to jump-start their college education without worrying about cost,” said Michael Netzer, CCBC Vice President, Enrollment and External Outreach. “Whether they are looking for a diploma, certificate or certification in the workplace, CCBC has something to offer them. This is a phenomenal opportunity and we hope students will start taking advantage of it this summer.
Under the new partnership, students can take an unlimited number of courses (credits and continuing education), the GPA requirement has been removed, and in addition to tuition, the cost of fees and books is included. This new partnership offers huge savings in time and money for BCPS students.
CCBC’s summer session is already underway, with a 7-week credited session beginning June 20 and a 5-week credited session beginning July 18. Continuing education courses are offered at various times throughout the year.
