Montgomery College’s Raptor Ready Program is designed to help 2020 high school graduates get an early introduction to college courses in an online or structured remote environment. 

Choose one of 21 selected credit courses. We'll cover your tuition and fees for the course in full. The courses run from July 11 through August 21, during MC's second summer session, and are designed to transfer easily to other schools. 

You'll receive up to $530 to spend in our online bookstore, which you can use to buy a laptop or any other technology or supplies you may need for the course. 

The program is for spring 2020 Montgomery County high school graduates who are Montgomery County residents (including anticipated June graduates).
