HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Hagerstown Community College is offering two free summer classes to 100 local high school graduates.

“We recognize all the sacrifices this year’s high school graduates have been forced to make, due to the pandemic,” said HCC President Jim Klauber. “This gift from the college is our way of helping to honor them and celebrate their accomplishments.”

The offer is for 2020 high school and home school graduates from Washington County and neighboring out-of-state counties (Franklin County, PA; Fulton County, PA; Berkeley County, WV; Jefferson County, WV; and Morgan County, WV).

Students may select one or two online summer courses beginning May 26, June 29, or July 13.

Tuition is free, but students are responsible for the cost of textbooks and college fees.

The application deadline is May 15, but students must be enrolled by May 26.
