Maryland Dream Act
As an open-admission institution, Garrett College grants admission to all students regardless of immigration status. Maryland legislation provides the opportunity for some non-U.S. citizens who attended high school in Maryland to receive in-county or out-of-county tuition rates.
In order to qualify for this exemption, students must meet the specified eligibility requirements. For more information and detailed requirements, review guidelines in the Request & Affidavit for Exemption from Non-Resident Tuition Rates.
