The Mount Airy College Center for Health Care Education is a unique collaboration between the community colleges of Carroll, Frederick and Howard Counties. The center brings together high-quality health care programs from all three campuses, allowing students throughout central Maryland to pursue high-demand health care training programs at low cost in one convenient location.
Established to expand access to health care training and address the critical workforce shortage of health care professionals in the state, the center allows students from each county to take any program or course offered at the Mount Airy location at the in-county tuition rate. Students who complete course work at the center receive the same instruction and resources as students attending class on the main campus of each college.
Each member college of the Mount Airy consortium is fully accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC).
