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

DACA/Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Federal "Dream Act")

DACA is a program introduced by the U.S. federal government which entitles qualifying undocumented individuals to receive a work permit, social security number, and other immigration benefits. Students who have been approved for DACA status should submit form I-797C (DACA Approval Notice).
