Not only do your transcripts help us award any transfer credit you’ve earned, they also must be submitted before you can be considered for any financial aid or scholarships.
To be considered “official,” your transcript must arrive at AACC in an envelope sealed by the institution granting the transcript. That means you’ll need to request your official transcript from your previous institution. Check the institution’s website for an online transcript request form, or call the institution’s registrar’s or records office to learn how to request your transcript. The transcript must be current, meaning AACC must receive it within one year of the date it was printed and sealed.
You’ll need to submit an official transcript from every institution you attended before applying to AACC. You may hand-deliver your sealed transcripts or have them mailed to AACC’s Records and Registration office:
Anne Arundel Community College
Records and Registration Office
101 College Parkway
Arnold, MD 21012
In some cases, institutions will offer official electronic PDF transcripts. In that case, have your institution email the official transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who attended a college outside of the U.S. must submit an evaluation from one of the accepted credentialing services:
If your previous school is now closed, here are some tips for locating your records:
Within 30 days of receiving your official transcripts, the records office will evaluate your transcript for transfer credit. Once that evaluation is complete, you’ll receive your official transfer credit award letter by mail, and you’ll be able to view your transfer credit evaluation on MyAACC under the Self Services tab.
Regardless of academic performance at a previous institution, AACC is required by the U.S. Department of Education to use this information when determining eligibility for financial aid at AACC.
