Make the Most of Your Summer!


Here comes summer! Time to get out and play. This past year has been quite the challenge and everyone is ready to turn loose! While some may be getting away on vacation, others are looking for fun right in their own back yard! CCBC has many ways to let you activate your summer, because taking a class doesn’t always mean sitting behind a desk.

For instance, if you haven’t been as active as you might have liked, CCBC can get you moving. From Fit Camp with a high-impact, interval resistance and cardio training to Basic Belly Dancing which lets you simultaneously move and tone… it’s easy to match your style.

Maryland lawmakers are close to adding HBCU funding


Capital News Service – In 2005, Towson University and the University of Maryland, Baltimore announced a joint Master of Business Administration program, despite the objections of nearby Morgan State University.

Grant Funding Covers Total Cost for Select CCBC Continuing Education Programs


What a challenging year 2020 has been! While we have all seen socio-economic changes to the way we live, there are many who have also seen their long-time jobs disappear.

For those who find themselves in this situation, CCBC is offering eight programs at no cost through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) grant.

For folks who’ve made the decision to switch careers, these programs are fully funded for those who meet the eligibility requirements.  They offer tuition, fees and books to any U.S. citizen who is a Maryland resident and whose job has been affected by COVID-19.
