At­tend CCBC tu­ition-free in 2020

The Dundalk Eagle - - SCHOOL NEWS -

CCBC is eas­ing the fi­nan­cial strain of en­rolling this fall with a plan that al­lows stu­dents to at­tend tu­ition­free. By pro­vid­ing stu­dents with sup­ple­men­tal aid after the award­ing of schol­ar­ships, grants and COVID-19 re­lief fund­ing, CCBC is re­mov­ing the big­gest bar­rier found in higher ed­u­ca­tion: cost.

“We rec­og­nize the fi­nan­cial hard­ship that many stu­dents are fac­ing and don’t want that to side­line their ed­u­ca­tional pur­suits,” said CCBC Pres­i­dent San­dra Kur­tini­tis. “We ex­pect to of­fer a va­ri­ety of course op­tions for the fall – on­line, in-per­son and hy­brid – and gladly wel­come back our cur­rently en­rolled stu­dents. We also hope to see many new stu­dents, par­tic­u­larly those seek­ing an al­ter­na­tive to re­turn­ing to their fouryear uni­ver­si­ties due to COVID-19 con­cerns.”

De­gree-seek­ing stu­dents are not the only ones to ben­e­fit from CCBC’s tu­ition-free of­fer. Any­one in­ter­ested in ac­quir­ing new skills through work­force train­ing pro­grams also qual­i­fies. With many work­force train­ing pro­grams tak­ing a year or less to com­plete, it’s a great way to get job-ready in very lit­tle time.
