Tuition Benefits

 
What is the Weighted Average Tuition and how much is it?

The Weighted Average Tuition is the in-state or in-county tuition and mandatory fees at each Maryland public college times the number of full-time equivalent in-state or in-county students enrolled at that college, added together. This total is then divided by the number of full-time equivalent in-state or in-county students enrolled at all Maryland public colleges. There is a separate calculation for the 4-year public colleges and the 2-year public community colleges in Maryland. We calculate the Weighted Average Tuition once each year, typically in the fall for the following year by applying its projected increase for tuition and mandatory fees to the current year’s Weighted Average Tuition.

The Weighted Average Tuition for the 2019-2020 academic year is $10,443 for 4-year public colleges and $4,917 for community colleges.
