Maryland Dream Act

As an open-admission institution, Garrett College grants admission to all students regardless of immigration status. Maryland Senate Bill 167 enacted in the 2011 Session of the Maryland General Assembly, also known as the Dream Act, 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
