Special financial assistance for BCPS students taking CCBC classes

by Bailey Cosnett, intern, Dept. of Communications and Community Outreach

BCPS students in Grades 10, 11, and 12 may apply for special financial resources to pay for tuition, fees, and books for the Community College of Baltimore County 2016 Spring Semester. These resources are available through the Maryland Part-Time State Grant Program and the Legg Mason Book Scholarship.

Students must be concurrently enrolled in a BCPS high school and CCBC to be eligible. To apply for this grant, these documents must be submitted to a CCBC Admissions Office:

  • Application for Admission (if applying to CCBC for the first time)
  • Early College Access Programs Consent Form
  • Part-Time State Grant Application, including a copy of 2014 federal income tax forms, as well as other documentation of untaxed income, e.g., child support

Students must complete the enrollment process (including placement testing, if needed), register for spring 2016 classes, and pay the required tuition and fees. Priority consideration will be given to students who demonstrate significant financial need in their income documents.

The deadline to submit all required documents to a CCBC Admissions Office is Friday, Jan. 15.  Applications and documents received after this deadline will be reviewed only if funds are still available. Award amounts are based on the number of credits/billable hours in which the student is enrolled. Awards will be applied directly to the student’s CCBC account.

Award notification letters will be mailed to eligible students after Sunday, Feb. 1. Classes begin Monday, Feb. 2. Contact your Early College Access Coordinator with any questions.
