Statewide Instructional Programs

The Maryland Higher Education Commission has designed certain instructional programs at Maryland community colleges as statewide programs. In addition to providing greater opportunity to additional Maryland citizens, the implementation of statewide programs allows for more effective planning for the placement of new instructional programs, particularly in high-cost specialties. Since residents of one county can enroll in designated programs in adjoining areas with little or no additional cost, there is less need to have all programs available locally. The procedure tends to reduce unnecessary duplication of effort. Programs designated as statewide are:
