A student who enrolls in a Statewide and Health Manpower Shortage program as an out-of-county student may be eligible to receive tuition reduction to in-county rates. The Annotated Code of Maryland, Education Article Section 17-310, permits a state resident to enroll in programs out of his or her county of residence and pay only the tuition and fees applicable by a resident of that county if the resident’s home county does not have a similar major.
To remain eligible, a student must be enrolled in credit courses that are required for approved Statewide or Health Manpower Shortage Programs. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in an outstanding tuition differential balance at out-of-county rates. In addition:
A student must verify his or her program of study with the Records and Registration office at the time of registration.
During the billing period, tuition will be adjusted for a student whose majors are Statewide and Health Manpower Shortage programs.
When tuition is due at time of registration, a student is required to inform the Bursar that he or she is enrolled in Statewide and Health Manpower Shortage programs.
A student who drops classes during the 50 percent refund period is responsible for 50 percent of the out-of-county tuition charge.
