Still can't find what you're looking for?

Some students come to AACC knowing exactly what they want to do and where they want to do it. Others have no idea. If you reviewed the majors in the accordions above, but can't find the major you want, have a specific 4-year program with special requirements to which you wish to transfer or are still completely undecided, we have some additional options for you.

Custom Transfer

If you would like to transfer to a college or university and find that AACC does not have a major that aligns with the degree requirements of that transfer school, an academic advisor can help you customize the Transfer Studies degree to ensure the smoothest transfer possible. The general education courses within the Transfer Studies program meet the general education requirements for public college and universities within Maryland. They may meet the requirements of many private and out-of-state colleges and universities as well. Your advisor will work with you to investigate the requirements of your intended transfer school and assist you in making sound educational decisions.

Undecided - General Exploration

For those truly undecided students, AACC has a general Explore option that will allow you to experience different subjects while completing your Maryland general education requirements.
