SENIOR ADULT TUITION WAIVER
Any resident of the State of Maryland who is 60 years of age or older at the
time of registration is eligible for a tuition waiver for some noncredit
courses. These courses are state-funded and will say
"Senior adult and disabled retiree tuition waivers apply" in the
course description. If the course description contains this statement,
senior adults do not pay tuition costs for the course. Course fees,
however, must be paid in full. Please note that there is no out-of-county
surcharge for senior adults.
Out-of-state senior citizens are not eligible for tuition waivers and must pay a
$10 residency surcharge.
If registering online, senior adult waivers are credited
to accounts by the next business day. Therefore, at the time of
registration, account balances will not reflect the waiver. If a
waiver does not display by the next business day, please contact the
Cashier's Office at email@example.com
or by phone at 443-412-2208.
MARYLAND NATIONAL GUARD WAIVER
Members of the Maryland National Guard are entitled to a waiver of 50% of
tuition only for noncredit vocational-technical/certification courses. Eligible
students must provide a letter from their commanding officer certifying
that the member of the Maryland National Guard has at least 24 months remaining
to serve or has agreed, in writing, to serve for a minimum of 24 months. The
College’s out-of-county and out-of-state residency surcharge is waived for
courses meeting eligibility for a Maryland National Guard waiver, but the
student is responsible for all other course fees.
MARYLAND NATIONAL GUARD DEPENDENT WAIVER
Dependent spouses and children of a member of the Maryland National Guard and
Maryland Air Guard may request a tuition and fee waiver when a Guard member is
called to active duty for a minimum period of six continuous months of service.
Eligibility for the waiver for a given semester will be determined by the
military status of the Guard member as of the date of the start of a regular
fall or spring semester or the start of the first summer session. Eligible
students must provide a copy of the spouse's/parent's military orders to active
duty along with a photocopy of the dependent military identification card.
