Financing your Maryland College education with MHEC and Dr. James Fielder (E-103)

One of the most stressful things that every parent faces is how to finance your kids’ college education. One way or another it gets done. But it does not need to be the struggle everyone claims.

MHEC-The Maryland Higher Education Commission has $105 MILLION to help you out. We sat down with Maryland’s Secretary of Higher Education, Dr. James Fielder to find out what the heck MHEC does and how parents, students, recent graduates, and those looking to go back to college can take advantage of the programs! We did not find the desk drawer with the $105 million though.

If you are a college student. If you are a parent hoping to send your kids to college. If you are a high school sophomore or older. If you are a recent graduate. If you are an adult in the workforce looking to finish or get a degree.  This will be an hour well spent!
