STATE REGULATORY INFORMATION

The Maryland State Department of Education has been designated as the sole agency for all federal vocational funds provided under the Carl D. Perkins Act. These funds are distributed on both an annual basis by a formula allocation and on a special project basis to the 18 publicly taxsupported community colleges located throughout the state. In addition to public postsecondary community colleges, vocational-technical education is provided by two year independent colleges and independent postsecondary schools.

Under statutory authority established in 1976, the Maryland State Board for Higher Education (SBHE) prescribes rules and regulations for approval and accreditation of all public and private schools offering postsecondary education. Nontransferable Certificates of Approval are issued to independent postsecondary schools for a specified period of time or until revoked by formal board action. Certificates of Approval are issued to any applicant operating an independent postsecondary school whose conditions of entrance, scholarship, educational qualifications, standards, and facilities are adequate for the program, training, and courses to be given.

No independent postsecondary schools, except those formally approved by SBHE action, may permit a sales representative or solicitor to solicit students without first securing an identification card issued by the board. Additional requirements are promulgated under approved regulations.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Modern Language Association

http://www.mla.org/style

The Chicago Manual of Style

http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html

American Psychological Association

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
