March 2008 Press Release




MHEC’s MDgo4it 2008-2009 Calendar to be released



March 27, 2008


College-bound students: Find a place to put a calendar on your wall!

The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) has just released its invaluable MDgo4it 2008-2009 calendar to more than 76,000 11th graders in Maryland’s public and independent high schools.

“This popular publication is intended to help students prepare their path to getting into an institution of higher learning,” Higher Education Secretary James E. Lyons, Sr., said. “It contains deadlines and key dates for registering and taking the SAT and ACT tests, deadlines for state and federal financial aid programs and key information on how to apply to the college or colleges of their choice.”

The calendar features more than a hundred tips and websites to inform or remind students what they should do to be best prepared for the college experience such as talking with guidance counselors about career plans, visiting colleges that fit their personalities, asking for recommendation letters, updating their resumes among countless others valuable advice.

Thanks to photos sent to MHEC by Maryland community colleges and public and independent colleges and universities, the publication comes alive with pictures submitted by the schools that portray students participating in the classroom, athletics, dorm life and social functions.

Photos for the 2008-2009 calendars were supplied by Anne Arundel Community College, College of Notre Dame of Maryland, the Community College of Baltimore County, Goucher College, Loyola College in Maryland, Montgomery College, Salisbury University, Towson University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, The Johns Hopkins University, Howard Community College and the College of Southern Maryland.

The MDgo4it calendar was funded in part through a grant from United State Aid Funds, Inc. (USAFunds). This calendar is a complement to the Commission’s ever-popular 411: the Student Guide to Higher Education and Financial Aid in Maryland which is distributed in English and Spanish each year to high schools.

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. It serves as an advocate for more than 325,000 college students in Maryland, for the State and its needs, and for business and industry in Maryland.
