Mid-Maryland Allied Healthcare Education Consortium

Consortium Programs and Policies

This state approved consortium is designed to increase the number of allied health professionals in critical shortage areas.  The agreement is to share specific allied health programs between HCC, Carroll Community College (CCC), and Frederick Community College (FCC).  Students complete general education course work at HCC, then apply through HCC to complete clinical course work at CCC or FCC.  Each college saves a certain number of clinical seats for consortium students.  Students must be legal residents of Howard, Carroll, or Frederick counties to be eligible for these programs.

Applications for Mid-Maryland Allied Healthcare Education Consortium (MMAHEC) programs are available on the respective consortium school websites during application periods.  Applicants to these programs must meet with an allied health advisor at their home school to submit their application materials.

Admission policies and benefitsEach college will designate a specific number of seats to be saved each year for students from other consortium colleges.

All MMAHEC Programs are selective admissions. Although a specific number of seats are saved for the MMAHEC students, it is still a competitive process among the students from each of these schools.

Students who meet the admission criteria for these programs, but who are not seated because of the limited number of available seats, are not necessarily guaranteed a seat in the following year's class.

HCC students must officially apply through HCC's Office of Admissions and Advising for these programs.

Students must abide by the application deadlines of the degree-granting institution.

Tuition benefitsStudents matriculating to a consortium college for an MMAHEC program receive in-county tuition rates at that college.
Course work covered by tuition benefitAll clinical course work is covered by the in-county tuition rate benefit, once the student has been admitted into the program.
Financial aidAvailable only at the degree-granting institution.
Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
