The State of Maryland has decided to step up their game and pay for tuition costs at Community Colleges around the state.

Gov. Larry Hogan plans to sign a bill this week the covers tuition costs for qualifying residents.

So you ask, how does one qualify?

If your family, Mom & Dad earn less than $125,000 in a single year, then the student qualifies.

If a Single parent earns less than $90,000 in a single year, the student qualifies.

Lastly, to qualify, prospective students must enroll in a Maryland community college within two years of finishing high school or obtaining a GED.  Students would have to take 12 credit hours and have a high school GPA of at least 2.3.

The program will go into effect in 2019.
