The Maryland Higher Education Commission is encouraging Maryland's college-bound students to apply as soon as possible for admission and financial aid to ensure full consideration. "The earlier students apply for admission, the better," said Karen R. Johnson, secretary of higher education. "We are anticipating increased competition for college admissions and for financial aid programs that are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. " The college admission process varies from institution to institution, but the federal financial aid process always begins with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

However, no extraordinary tuition increases have occurred this year at colleges and universities in the Tri-state area.

"I don't know if there's ever a year when tuition doesn't increase. " He said tuition increases in private higher education have averaged 2 percent to 3 percent over the past five years.

You've probably heard of the term "urban myth. " An urban myth is an untrue story that has been told so many times that people believe it - stories such as alligators living in the New York City sewer system. There's another urban myth circulating that many students believe - that thousands of college scholarships go unclaimed every year. It just isn't true. Some scholarships will go unclaimed from time to time, usually if they have very specific or difficult qualifications, but most of the time, students are scrambling to find and apply for scholarships with the same enthusiasm they exhibit when searching for free Internet downloads.
