The Maryland Dream Act allows high school graduates who are undocumented immigrants the opportunity to receive the lowest tuition rate at their local community college, if they meet certain requirements. The law applies to undocumented high school graduates who live in all 24 jurisdictions within the state of Maryland—every county in the state of Maryland, plus the city of Baltimore.
With the passage of the law, students who continue to meet Maryland Dream Act requirements can transfer and pay in-state tuition and fees at Maryland state four-year colleges and universities, as long as they earn their first 60 credits or an associate’s degree from a community college.
The Maryland Dream Act took effect December 6, 2012, and students who enroll in the semesters following that date will have to comply with the new law.
