Baltimore County College Promise Program

The Baltimore County College Promise Program is a scholarship program for qualified Baltimore County residents. The College Promise program is a “last dollar in” scholarship which will cover in-county tuition and mandatory fees for eligible students after applying all financial awards — such as Federal Pell Grants, Maryland state aid, institutional funds, and CCBC Foundation scholarships.

Awardees may apply the scholarship towards courses required for one degree or credential sought at CCBC (credit or non-credit). Students will still need to cover other costs such as books (including first day book fees), transportation, supplies and materials.
