Students are admitted and enrolled according to general admission policies and procedures. Students who have never graduated from high school should meet with an academic adviser prior to enrolling in classes to discuss career and educational goals.
The college strongly encourages such students to complete their high school graduation requirements or obtain a General Educational Development Diploma (GED). Courses for GED preparation are offered at the Glen Burnie Town Center and other sites through out the county. For information, call 410-777-1823.
