HIGHER EDUCATION BROCHURES NOW
AVAILABLE IN SPANISH
The brochures facilitate the pursuit of postsecondary
education and financial aid for middle school students, high
school students and their parents.
Annapolis, MD (February 9, 2007) – The Maryland Higher
Education Commission (MHEC) has published the popular
What’s Next After High School? Preparing Your Child for
College. How Far Do You Want to Go? and the College 411 – A
Quick Guide to Cash for College & How to Get It in
Spanish. All are available to download on the MHEC website:
www.mhec.state.md.us. The brochures have been distributed to
high school guidance counselors throughout the State.
“These brochures make it possible for parents in the
Hispanic community who do not speak English to participate
in their child’s education,” said Lt. Governor Anthony G.
Brown. “Parents will have the opportunity to research
first-hand what is available for their children in both
higher education and financial aid.”
With the Hispanic population growing at unprecedented rates,
MHEC is committed to providing information to encourage
Hispanic students to succeed in high school and transition
into postsecondary education. This is the first time that
these brochures will be printed in Spanish.
The Maryland Higher Education Commission is a 12-member
coordinating board responsible for establishing statewide
policies for Maryland public and independent colleges and
universities and private career schools.
