Do you meet the qualifications for the Maryland Dream Act?

As an open door admission institution, the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) grants admission to all students regardless of immigration status.

In 2012, the Maryland legislature passed Senate Bill 167, also known as the Maryland Dream Act, which grants some non-U.S. citizens an opportunity to pay in-county tuition rates at Maryland’s community colleges. As an open door admission institution, the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) grants admission to all students regardless of immigration status. Those CCBC students who meet the Dream Act eligibility criteria and submit an Application for Non-Resident Tuition Exception for Undocumented Students, along with the required documentation, may be eligible to pay in-county tuition rates.

The application package will be reviewed within 14 days of receipt by CCBC.
Applying for the exemption does not change the student’s responsibility to pay their tuition and fees before the exemption eligibility is determined. The Maryland Dream Act is different from Deferred Action from the U.S. government.
