Tuition AssistanceIn addition to traditional financial aid (scholarships, grants, and loans), tuition assistance programs are available for certain members of our community.
Any resident of Maryland who is out of the workforce because of a permanent disability as defined by the Social Security Act, the Railroad Retirement Act, (or in the case of former federal employees, the Office of Personnel Management), and enrolls in a community college class that has at least ten regularly enrolled students, may be eligible for a tuition waiver.
All students with disabilities who enroll in credit courses at CCBC are required to take action to continue receiving the tuition waiver.
Early College Access Program (ECAP)
- Maryland resident

Military Tuition Assistance Benefits
Each service branch varies in their application process, criteria for eligibility, service obligation, and restrictions. Service members choosing to use Tuition Assistance (TA) benefits should follow the links and directions for their specific service. Students must be approved by their Education Center prior to enrolling in classes. It is highly advised to begin this process early (60 days prior to the start of the semester) as Tuition Assistance must be approved at least 7 days before classes begin.
Once approved, email your TA Authorization Letter to email@example.com.
NOTE: Tuition Assistance does not cover fees, only tuition.
Stay on track this semester— tuition free!
Life looks different right now, but your future doesn't have to. Enroll in college courses or select workforce training programs without the cost of tuition.
