PGCPS has a partnership with Prince George’s Community College and Bowie State University. For students who apply through the PGCPS Dual Enrollment Program, tuition is paid for by PGCPS, leaving students only responsible for the cost of university fees and books. Students who receive Free or Reduced Meals will also have the cost of fees and books covered.

Dual Enrollment Eligibility
Students may begin taking courses starting the summer after their 10th grade year if they meet the eligibility requirements determined by each institution. Students are given the Accuplacer for free at CMIT in February and September starting in February of their 10th grade year if they have at least a 2.5 GPA weighted GPA. Students may take the SAT or ACT for eligibility purposes as early as they would like at their own cost.
