The Baltimore County College Promise program covers tuition and mandatory fees for qualifying students to complete an associate degree or workplace credential at CCBC. Students are required to apply for financial aid and the Baltimore County College Promise program will cover tuition and fees not covered by financial aid. Students

receiving the scholarship will still be responsible for other costs such as books, transportation, supplies and materials. The scholarship applies only to the first degree or credential sought.

The new Baltimore County College Promise program was announced by the late Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz in March 2018, and passed by the Baltimore County Council in May 2018, and guarantees eligible students tuition-free attendance at CCBC.
