President’s Biden’s push for free community college has us taking a closer look at a Maryland program already doing that. Maryland has a program where you can get into a community college tuition-free.
The Community college Promise Scholarship has been around for about two years now.
However it doesn't guarantee free school for everyone-- there are requirements you have to meet.
- a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.5 from the community college; or
- a high school unweighted cumulative GPA of at least a 2.3 or its equivalent at the end of the first semester or end of their senior year in high school.
Applicants whose annual adjusted gross income was not more than:
- $100,000 if the applicant is single or resides in a single-parent household; or
- $150,000 if the applicant is married or resides in a two-parent household for the 2018 tax year.
There are additional qualifications. For more information, click here.
