Classes beginning Oct. 22 or laterPDF
You still have time to earn college credit this fall at Anne Arundel Community College (AACC). Classes for the 13-week session begin Sept. 10 and classes for the second eight-week session begin Oct. 22. If you have work or home obligations during the week, sign up for AACC’s convenient weekend program, WeekendYou, which begins Sept. 7.
Both the 13-week and the eight-week courses contain the same content and earn the same amount of credit as the 15-week courses. Many are offered online, giving you even more flexibility. Students in AACC’s WeekendYou program can earn an associate degree or complete a credit certificate by combining classes on weekends with some online classes. Visit http://www.aacc.edu/weekend/faq.cfm to see the options available.
Whichever session you choose, you can select from a variety of general education courses or courses in your major or in a field that interests you. Some general education options include communications, computer technology, English, health, history, mathematics, music, philosophy, physical education, psychology and sociology. Specialized fields include courses in business, criminal justice, education, emergency medical technician, entrepreneurship, homeland security, hotel/restaurant management, human services, legal studies, nursing, physical therapist assistant and therapeutic massage. Registration also is ongoing for noncredit, continuing education courses. While many classes are for personal enrichment, others lead to continuing education certificates or professional certifications.
If you need help developing educational goals, academic advisers are available at the Arnold campus, AACC at Arundel Mills, GBTC and the Army Education Center at Fort Meade. A list of specific programs is available at www.aacc.edu/areasofstudy. If you already have an academic plan, advisers can help you find the best courses to complete your certificate or degree program.
Talk to AACC’s financial aid staff to help you put together a financial aid package. Most students are eligible for some type of financial aid. Federal financial aid is still available.
