This year, MCPS is providing new opportunities for middle and high school students, including career advising and no fees for approved college courses and Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) exams.

No Fees for Approved College Courses and Transportation

Students will be able to access college courses at no cost. Additionally, MCPS will provide transportation to Montgomery College (MC) campuses during the school day for college courses that are not available online or at a student’s high school. A transportation schedule has been developed with routes from each high school to the nearest MC campus. Students interested in taking an approved college course not currently offered at their high school or online during the school day and in need of transportation should work with their high school Dual Enrollment Program Assistant (DEPA) and their assigned high school counselor to identify courses of interest that would support their high school plan and fit within the transportation schedule.

No Fees for Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Exams

In addition, MCPS will pay for all AP and IB exams. Students enrolled in an AP or IB course will be encouraged to participate in the corresponding exam at no cost to them.
