Parallel Enrollment Program

Take classes while in high school

Get a head start on your college education – at a fraction of the cost!

Attending a high school or home school in Maryland? Take advantage of the Parallel Enrollment Program (PEP), which allows you to take CCBC classes while in high school, at half the tuition rate!

Not only will you save time and money on your education, but you'll also have college experience under your belt before your first year.


To take advantage of the Parallel Enrollment Program, students must be in high school and reside in the state of Maryland. Connect with your high school counselor to see if you qualify. If you are a Baltimore County Public High School student, check out our BCPS Dual Credit Options.
