Consumer Information

  • At Prince George's Community College, we want you to be able to make an informed choice about attending our school. The U.S. Department of Education and other government entities mandate that colleges who participate in student financial aid programs provide various types of consumer information to the public. We have assembled this information here in our website to make it easy for our current and future students and their families. The information includes:

    • HB104 Tuition Waiver Procedure for Students with Disabilities (doc)
    • Red Flag Regulations and Guidelines 
      In 2007, several federal agencies including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Federal Trade Commission, passed Red Flag Regulations and Guidelines which require financial institutions or creditors to develop and implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program. The purpose of the initiative is to detect, prevent and mitigate identity theft in connection with the opening of certain accounts or existing accounts. This legislation does apply to higher education institutions including student and employee information. Prince Georges Community College has recently completed college-wide Identity Theft exercise. In response to the new law, Prince Georges Community College has created an Identity Theft Prevention Committee. The group meets regularly and has distributed a copy of the Red Flags Procedures Module for Covered Accounts Manual to each department. For more information on the colleges efforts to keep your information safe from identity theft, please contact Nancy Burgess at BurgesNE@pgcc.edu. 
    • Gainful Employment  
    • Maryland Higher Education Commission Resolution to operate in the State of Maryland (pdf)
      The purpose of the resolution is to ease the burden of complying with the October 29, 2010 U.S. Department of Education Regulations on Program Integrity Issues (75 FR 66831 – 66975). The new regulations require an educational institution to be “established by name as an educational institution by a State through a charter, statute, constitutional provision, or other action by an appropriate State agency or State entity…” and be “authorized to operate educational programs beyond secondary education, including programs leading t a degree or certificate.”
