Baltimore County College Promise Program - Workforce Training Certificate Programs

The Baltimore County College Promise Program is a need-based scholarship program guaranteeing free tuition for qualified Baltimore County residents. The Baltimore County 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.
