BALTIMORE, MD—Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) is offering students a tuition-free summer experience, as part of the Early College Access Program (ECAP). This new initiative aims to ensure accessibility and affordability for higher education students.

CCBC will cover the cost of tuition for high school students by providing them with a tuition-free summer program at the college. This initiative is expected to benefit approximately 4,000 credit and Continuing Education students who owe less than $1,000 in outstanding student debt. This will allow students to continue their studies without the financial burden of unpaid tuition, which may discourage re-enrollment and progression toward degree completion.

In addition to the tuition-free summer program, CCBC has also forgiven $2.2 million in outstanding student debt for students with less than $1,000 in debt from the 2022-23 or 2023-24 academic year. This initiative is part of the college’s commitment to providing accessible and affordable education for students. It is hoped that these initiatives will encourage students to pursue higher education opportunities and contribute to the growth of the region.

CCBC’s decision to offer a tuition-free summer program and forgive student debt are significant steps in ensuring accessibility and affordability for higher education students. Officials say this move will help to reduce financial barriers for students and allow them to focus on their studies. The initiatives are expected to have a positive impact on the college’s mission of empowering generations of area residents to transform their lives and the lives of others.
