Garrett College has a wide selection of courses available for students wishing to be 'dually enrolled' in both high school and college courses. High school students over the age of 16 are encouraged to take advantage of the dual enrollment opportunities provided by Garrett College. Dual Enrolled students living within the state of Maryland are eligible for a tuition waiver.

Read more about Dual Enrollment by following this link.

Home-schooled students who are 16 years of age and older should follow the College’s standard application procedures for admissions. However, in keeping with guidelines provided by the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR 13B.02.02), consideration for admission of such students will include the evaluation of the student’s results on the placement test administered by the College. The home-schooled student must submit official high school transcripts and may submit other evidence of his/her ability to benefit, such as ACT or SAT scores. As with all applicants under the age of 16 years, home-schooled students under the age of 16 years must qualify as gifted and talented.

Garrett College is proud of its international student population and welcomes new students looking to study in the United States.

In accordance with Section 16-106(b) of the Maryland Annotated Code, tuition may be waived for any Maryland resident who is 60 years of age or older. In order to obtain this waiver, an individual must at the time of registration provide verification of age. (All other fees or costs associated with enrollment are the responsibility of the student.)

Students may transfer to Garrett College after they have attended another institution of higher education upon receipt of an admission application and official college transcript(s) from all colleges/universities attended. Transcripts must be received by the Records and Registration Office in a sealed, stamped envelope or by an accepted electronic transcript service. For more details on how Garrett College accepts transfer credit click here.

Regardless of your GI Bill® eligibility, you may also qualify for other forms of Federal and State Financial Aid. To determine eligibility please fill out a FAFSA on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Garrett College welcomes students wishing to take courses as personal interest, professional development, or to transfer credits to another institution. Students not seeking a degree or certificate will need to submit a Non-Degree Student Application at the time of registration. High School and/or college transcripts are not required unless needed to satisfy course pre-requisites. Non-Degree Seeking Students are not eligible to receive financial aid.
