About

Prince George's Community College was founded in 1958 in Largo, Maryland and has served residents of Prince George's County ever since. PGCC has three satellite locations located in Hyattsville, Laurel College Center and Andrew's Air Force Base. The institute serves approximately 40,000 students in over 60 different programs. PGCC is a learning center environment focused on furthering students' academic and professional careers. The school is considered one of the best two year institutions in the nation and maintains this status by continually reviewing and updating their program offerings as well as adding new programs as necessary to reflect the needs of students and the community.

Academics

PGCC's academic programs are divided into two types, transfers programs and career programs. Transfer programs provide students the opportunity to complete the freshman and sophomore years of a four year education at a low cost and then transfer to a college or university in order to complete their bachelor's degree. The school  also provides prerequisite education programs in such fields as law or medicine to prepare for graduate level studies. Career and technical programs offer students the opportunity to learn the skills and obtain the experience necessary to enter the workforce as professionals upon graduation. Such students will be able to perform the tasks and duties required by their field of expertise. Additionally, noncredit courses are offered for those individuals who seek to personal growth and continuing education courses for those individuals requiring course hours for renewal of a license or certificate.

Programs offered include:

  • Business Administration
  • Pharmacy Technician
  • Biology
  • Cosmetology
  • Sociology

Adult education courses are also offered for individuals who wish to return to school and pursue educational opportunities they may have passed up earlier. Completion of an adult education program results in a General Education Diploma (GED). Separate programs are offered for native English speakers and those who speak another language.

Admissions and Financial Aid

PG Community College processes admissions applications year round, though it is recommended that such applications be submitted three months prior to the intended start date. Students under the age of twenty-one must have their high school transcripts transferred and must have a high school diploma or GED. As an open enrollment institution all students are eligible for admission if they meet the minimal criterion as established by the school. Students may be required to take placement exams to determine which level of general education courses they must begin with.

Financial aid is available in the form of loans and grants at the state and federal level. Students in need of aid should complete the Free Application for Financial Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine need, eligibility and awards. Students may also be required to provide additional financial information to assist the school in making its determinations. Certain scholarships may also be available to individual students based on a variety of criteria. These scholarships may require a separate application, often including an essay, in order to determine awards.
