At the College of Southern Maryland, we believe that education is a lifelong pursuit. That's why we offer affordable, non-credit courses designed to enhance professional development and enrich your personal life. If you require financial assistance for non-credit courses, there are several options available to you based on eligibility.


The College of Southern Maryland is committed to serving active duty personnel, veterans and their families by providing them with educational opportunities to develop skills for post military careers.

The commitment is so important to us that we have been identified as a veteran and military-friendly institution by the Military Advanced Education Guide and Victory Media.
