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). The general application for the 2021-2022 academic year ended on Friday, March 4, 2022.

The 2022-2023 General Application for new and returning students opens on Monday, March 21, 2022. Students attending the summer 2022 semester who are experiencing a COVID related hardship will be able to complete the CCBC Cares Application starting Monday, March 21, 2022.

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! See if you qualify after submitting the General Application, complete the CCBC Cares Application. Type “CCBC Cares” in the search bar and answer a few questions to assist us with determining your eligibility.

Monitor your CCBC email regularly for financial aid communications. Also, continue to check your AcademicWorks account for award decisions.
