There are currently 55 colleges and universities, defined as accredited, degree-granting, postsecondary institutions, in the state of Maryland.

The state's public universities are part of the University System of Maryland, with the exception of United States Naval Academy, St. Mary's College and Morgan State University, which are public, but are not part of the university system.[1] The oldest school in the state is St. John's College, formerly King William School, founded in 1696, and the third oldest college and/or university in the United States.[2] Francis Scott Key, author of the Star Spangled Banner, is an alumnus of St. John's.[3] The newest school is University of Maryland, Hagerstown, founded in 2008. The characteristics of each institution varies from small, intimate, liberal arts colleges such as Washington College and McDaniel College to large, public, research universities such as the University of Maryland, College Park.

As of 2005, approximately 310,689 students (undergraduate, graduate, & professional) were enrolled at Maryland universities and colleges.[4]. In fall 2010, some 369,320 students (undergraduate, graduate, & professional) enrolled at Maryland universities and colleges (increase of 18.87% since 2005), the highest such enrollment in State history. Women accounted for 57.5% of all students. For undergraduates, Maryland residents constituted 93% of enrollees at community colleges, 76.5% at public four-year institutions, and 54.4% at independent universities and colleges. [5] Universities and colleges in Maryland are accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.[6]
