Health Sciences FAQ

In response to COVID-19, we continue to offer services remotely for our students, faculty and staff. Some of our frequently asked questions are below. If the FAQs don't answer your question, contact the Health Sciences admissions office.

I need to speak with a Health Sciences academic advisor. How can I make an appointment since the campus is closed?

Health Sciences and Human Services academic advisors are available to assist and meet with you remotely through virtual advising. 

After you apply to Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) and submit any prior high school and/or college transcripts, you can find your advisor and schedule an advising appointment on MyAACC. Below are the steps to access the Virtual Advising Center:

  • Login to MyAACC at https://portal.aacc.edu 
  • Click on MENU
  • Select SELF SERVICES
  • Locate and click on Academic & Transfer Advising
  • Enroll in the Virtual Advising Center on Canvas
  • Follow the directions to schedule an appointment with your assigned Health and Human Services advisor

I was planning to attend an information session for a Health Sciences program. How can I still participate while the college is closed?

View the AACC Calendar to register for the next Health Sciences Virtual Information Session. Instructions about registration and login details are provided.

I need to take the Arithmetic Placement test and/or the TEAS test. What do I do?

All on-campus testing is currently suspended. Please email the Testing Office at testing-arnold@aacc.edu to schedule a remote testing appointment. Keep checking the testing office for any updates.

I need to submit an official transcript. How can I do this if the college is not open?

You are encouraged to submit transcripts electronically as this will significantly reduce the amount of time needed to process transcripts. For official transcripts the primary resource is Parchment. Transcripts can be accepted through a number of electronic formats (EDI, E-Script and National Student Clearinghouse). You should be able to request that transcripts be sent electronically from your prior institution to AACC via records@aacc.edu. Transcripts submitted by mail will have a significantly increased processing time.  

Visit Records and Registration's transfer credit page for detailed information on submitting official transcripts.

I need to submit a paper copy of my program application. How do I submit a paper application?

You may email your paper application as a PDF file to healthsciencesadmissions@aacc.edu. Once the application is received, you'll receive a reply email. If you do not receive a reply within two business days, please email us again.

Do not email your full date of birth or Social Security number. These are not requested on your application and we want to make sure that no protected information is sent via email. A copy of your driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID is no longer required so you don't need to email a copy with your application.

Before emailing the address verification and supporting documentation that is required by your program of interest, white out financial, date of birth or other confidential information that may be on the documents.

In addition, paper applications may be mailed to:

Anne Arundel Community College
Attention: School of Health Sciences
101 College Parkway
Arnold, MD 21012

My health form is due but I cannot get an appointment for a physical. Will I lose my seat?

We understand that physicians’ offices are not making routine appointments right now. We will give you ample time to complete the necessary documents required for clinicals. Complete as much as you can, gather medical documents that you may have for previous vaccines and check your AACC email periodically for any updates.
