Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Community College of Baltimore County grants & scholarships page! Funding may be available to assist with the costs of your college education. The first step in applying for any type of financial aid, including scholarships, is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov (CCBC school code 002063).

Click the orange ‘Sign In’ button above and enter your CCBC user ID and password to complete the General Application. This application will also be used to determine the eligibility of degree and certificate-seeking students to receive the Baltimore County College Promise award.

If you are applying for Baltimore County College Promise – Workforce Training Certificate Programs in Continuing Education please type “College Promise” in the search bar. Complete the Workforce Training-specific application for your intended program(s) and start date. You should allow up to 4 weeks for processing once the application has been submitted.

CCBC is proud to announce our tuition-free program for the 2020-2021 academic year! See if you qualify after submitting the General Application, complete the CCBC Tuition-Free Application. Type “Tuition Free” in the search bar and answer a few questions to assist us with determining your eligibility.
