Starting this summer, Baltimore County Public School (BCPS) high school students can take unlimited courses for free at the Community College of Baltimore County.
The Maryland State Department of Education has allocated funding for school systems to increase student access to college and career readiness programs— specifically dual enrollment, career and technical education, and Advanced Placement courses.
“We’re excited about this partnership which gives BCPS students a jumpstart on their college education without the worry of cost,” said Michael Netzer, CCBC Vice President, Enrollment and External Outreach. “Whether they are interested in pursuing a degree, certificate or workplace certification, CCBC has something to offer. It’s a phenomenal opportunity and we hope students begin taking advantage of it this summer.”
Under the new partnership, students can take an unlimited number of courses (credit and continuing education), the GPA requirement has been eliminated, and in addition to tuition, the cost of fees and books is included. This new partnership provides tremendous time and cost-savings for BCPS students.
CCBC’s summer session is already underway, with a 7-week credit session beginning June 20 and a 5-week credit session starting July 18. Continuing Education classes are offered at various times throughout the year.
