Young female outside.

Start college while you're still in high school, with significant savings!

This innovative partnership between Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) and the Community College of Baltimore County offers a 50% tuition reduction for all BCPS students enrolled in college courses. Furthermore, students who qualify as College and Career Ready (CCR) will not be billed for tuition, fees, or books.

No tuition or book costs for CCR students. Half the tuition for all other BCPS students. Just cover your supplies, and we'll take care of the rest!
