Academic Advisor with student

Are you interested in teaching, but not sure where to start? The TEACH Institute advisor supports education students, like you, here at Anne Arundel Community College. By working with your advisor, you can reach your academic and transfer goals in the following ways:

  • Understand program requirements and course prerequisites.
  • Select courses and create a path toward successful degree completion.
  • Develop a plan for preparing for and passing the Praxis Core.
  • Navigate the transfer process.
  • Explore career development opportunities.
  • Practice effective learning strategies and time management skills.
  • Get involved with the Student Education Association.

Each student must make an appointment to meet with the TEACH Institute advisor, who is available to meet with students by appointment on the second floor of the Student Services Building in Arnold or at the Arundel Mills location in Suite 309.  For questions, please call 410-777-2401.

Credit or Noncredit?

Most career training tracks are credit programs leading to a degree, certificate or letter of recognition. However, some child care training and teacher professional development courses are offered through noncredit. If you are not sure which track you need to pursue, contact us at teach@aacc.edu.

New students who wish to take credit classes but have never been enrolled in Anne Arundel Community College must apply to the college before scheduling an appointment with an advisor.
