Higher Education in Maryland

Going to college, whether at a two-year or a four-year college, gives you more skills and a better chance to succeed.  College students have opportunities to grow personally, intellectually, and professionally, and college graduates make more money.
Maryland is fortunate to have 56 colleges and universities from which to choose  -  colleges that offer every major from accounting to zoology.  In other words, whatever you want to study, you can find it right here at a Maryland college or university.
Preparation is the key to ensuring your dream of going to college is realized.  To assist you with the process, www.MDgo4it.org was created.  This website presents information about planning for college in a user friendly and engaging manner.  Check it out!

Narrative for Benchwarmers video:  While waiting to play in a football game, two male teens discuss their options after high school. Football player #7 tells football player #90 that he’s going to college on an academic scholarship and was also able to get a loan. Football player #7 goes on to say that after exploring his career options, he has decided to become a medic. The announcer instructs viewers to “Hit MDgo4it.org to apply to Maryland colleges, find financial aid, explore majors, and more.” The announcer concludes the video by stating “MDgo4it.org. College . . . GO FOR IT!”
