Promise Scholarship

College is more affordable than you think! The Maryland Community College Promise Scholarship may allow you to attend Wor-Wic tuition free!

Maryland high school graduates and GED recipients of any age may be eligible to take advantage of this state scholarship. Scholarships are available for both credit and non-credit offerings. Information on specific eligibility requirements can be found on the Maryland Higher Education Commission’s website.

All Promise applicants must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before March 1. In limited circumstances in which a student is eligible for in-state tuition, but is ineligible for Federal student aid, the Maryland State Financial Aid Application (MSFAA) must be completed online using MDCAPS (the online processing system of the Maryland Higher Education Commission). If you need to access tax information for these applications, you can do so electronically using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.

Documentation requested by Wor-Wic or the Maryland Higher Education Commission must be received no later than the posted deadlines. Interested in more information about the Promise Scholarship? Check out the Maryland Association of Community College’s website.
