Note Regarding Age Requirements
Students should be at least 16 years of age to enroll in most continuing education courses, except for those courses specifically designated for younger students. Students under the age of 16 who have completed at least the seventh grade may be permitted to enroll in courses on a case-by-case basis. Students will be considered for such admission if they demonstrate the ability to profit from instruction based on a set of specific criteria. For more information, call the counseling office (301.846.2471). Certain programs or courses of study include higher minimum age for participation when the College has determined that age is a factor necessary to the normal operation of the program or activity. Minimum age is used as a measure or approximation of the level of maturity, judgment, and social independence needed for successful participation in the program or activity in addition to academic skills. [Authority: 34 CFR 110.12]
