Through a unique collaboration across several community colleges in Maryland, Cecil College students have access to several degree programs that are not currently offered at Cecil College.

The Maryland Education Alliance (MEA) creates pathways for students to complete these programs of study. Participating community colleges include Anne Arundel Community College, Carroll Community College, Cecil College, Chesapeake College, College of Southern Maryland, Harford Community College, and Prince George’s Community College.

Cecil College students are encouraged to complete the first year of their degree at Cecil College and, during that year, apply for admission into the specific program at another community college. Once admitted, students are enrolled at the community college hosting the program. To inquire about programs included in this initiative, please contact the Advising Office at advising@nullcecil.edu.

Some health care programs are eligible for in-county tuition under the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) Health Manpower Shortage program. Please inquire at the institution you are planning to attend. This option is only available once you are admitted to a specific program of study.

Students are also encouraged to speak with an advisor if they are interested in the following programs:
