How Do I Sign Up?

There are a couple of steps involved in signing up for our Mechatronics program. If you have any questions during the process (It should be quick and easy) please call Kat Schorr 410-777-7219 email: OR  Joe Taylor 410-777-2909 email:

One of the steps is taking the AccuPlacer exam. Do not be intimidated by this exam - this is required for all AACC students. Our advice is to take it at the AACC testing center and to spend some time studying the practice exam. It can be downloaded below. This practice exam should give you a good idea of what to expect.
