    Veterans
    The Veterans Services Office is not the Veterans Administration. We do not determine your eligibility for veterans benefits. We do, however, provide you with the appropriate paperwork to apply to the VA for benefits. We are responsible for certifying your enrollment status to the VA, which is what gets you paid. The VA will not pay for continuing education courses, audited courses or courses that do not count toward your program of study at Prince George's Community College. For further information please contact the Veterans Benefits Office by phone at 301-322-0820 or by email veterans@pgcc.edu. More information
    International Students
    Permanent Residents and Those on Other Than Student Visas
    While over 10 percent of the college’s students are non-citizens, most of them are already living in the community and would be asked to follow the procedures for new students or transfer students given above. The only additional step for such students is the requirement to present a visa and passport, or permanent resident card, before their first registration so that their entitlement to in-county status for tuition purposes may be determined. Those who fail to do this will still be admitted but will be classified as out-of-state residents for tuition purposes until such time as the documents are provided and a final determination made.

    Transferring Students
    Students who have earned credit at another college may be able to use that credit toward a degree at Prince George’s Community College regardless of the age of the courses taken. Students also may earn transfer credit from nontraditional sources, such as military or job training. More information

  • CREDIT VS. NONCREDIT 

    Credit 

    Credit courses and programs prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions or for entry directly into the workforce. Credit students are able to earn degrees and certificates in traditional and cutting-edge disciplines such as nursing, teacher education, business, criminal justice, information security, and more than 60 other areas. 

    Noncredit 

    If you are interested in learning a new skill or trade, gaining entry level skills, or exploring a new hobby or interest, then noncredit courses, also known as Workforce Development and Continuing Education courses, are for you! Noncredit courses cover a wide range of topics designed to meet the needs of our diverse community. These courses are not designed to count towards a college degree, but instead to count towards your success in your career and in life. Whatever your interest or desire there is a noncredit course or program for you!
