Students who want to register in November for spring credit classes at Anne Arundel Community College will have an extra month before they have to put down any tuition money under a new policy announced this month. Registration for spring credit classes opens Nov. 12.
AACC has had a tuition payment plan for several years that allows students to spread the cost of their education throughout the first three months of a term. For fall classes, that last payment of 30 percent of tuition is due Nov. 1. Coming up with 20 percent of the following term’s tuition on Nov. 12 – just 11 days later – can be challenging. Under the new policy, that initial 20 percent will be due Dec. 10, but students can still register in November.
John F. Grabowski, Ph.D., dean of enrollment services at AACC, said, “We made the change to assist students who are taking fall classes and needed to make the last fall tuition payment Nov. 1 as part of the college’s no-fee payment plan. This new policy allows that student to register in November without making a second monthly payment. This policy also encourages students to plan earlier and to register for spring classes at the times and locations they desire before they are filled by others.”
After the Dec. 10 payment, the new tuition payment plan calls for a second 20 percent payment due Feb. 1, a 30 percent payment due March 1 and the final 30 percent payment due April 1.
New students may submit an application online. Once an application is complete, you will receive an AACC ID number and information on the next steps. Current students can register online through MyAACC, and click on Academic Life, then Planning Resources. Before signing up, they can look under the Current AACC Students section and select Evaluate Your Progress to see the best courses for them to take during the next term.
