    If you are applying as a credit student, you must complete an Application for Admission, available online. There is a $25 non-refundable application fee. Applying online is convenient and quick and will save you a trip to campus. The completed application is valid for one calendar year. If you are returning to Prince George’s Community College after an absence of two years or more, you must submit a new application and fee.

    What documents should I have ready?

    Most students will only need to fill out and submit the application with payment in order to be admitted. Students under the age of 21 must also submit an official high school transcript or General Educational Development (GED). Applicants under 18 who are not high school graduates must provide a letter from the appropriate educational authority verifying permanent withdrawal from the school system.

    Applicants over the age of 16 who do not have a high school diploma, or GED and who have permanently left elementary or secondary school  are welcome to take credit classes, but may not be eligible to receive Title IV federal financial aid. 

    NOTE: Applicants seeking entry into any health technology program must provide a complete transcript, copy of the high school diploma, or GED. See additional instructions for non-U.S. citizens who are permanent residents or who will attend the college on an F-1 visa.

    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 residence 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.
