Maryland State Higher Education Commission, Annapolis.
This guide is designed to help students choose the institution and course of study best suited to their plans. The guide contains information about more than 50 colleges and universities in Maryland, including a comprehensive list of private career schools approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission. The first section of the guide contains brief profiles of higher education institutions in Maryland, indicating where they are, what they teach, how much they cost, what their admissions standards are, and other facts. "What To Study" outlines some of the academic programs available in Maryland and suggests some out-of-state options for the student who wants something else. Programs are grouped as: (1) bachelor's, graduate, and professional degree programs; (2) two-year associate programs; (3) occupational and technical career programs; and (4) statewide community college programs. The next two sections discuss the "academic Common Market," majors available in other states at Maryland in-state tuition rates, and military education programs. Military academies and private career schools are also described. The final section of the guide contains information on financial aid types, eligibility, and where to get more information about specific programs. (SLD)
