Higher Education in Maryland

February 2008 Press Release





The brochures facilitate the pursuit of postsecondary education and financial aid

for middle school students, high school students and their parents.



Annapolis, MD (February 15, 2008)


For the second straight year, 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.

“As someone who majored in Spanish as an undergraduate in college, I am certainly proud that MHEC sees the importance of producing these publications,” Higher Education Secretary James E. Lyons, Sr., said. “There’s no question our Hispanic population in Maryland is growing and we need to provide for their needs.”

“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.

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.
