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 intend to transfer to a four-year school but AACC doesn't have a major aligning with that school's  degree requirements, an academic advisor can help! AACC's Transfer Studies degree can be customized to ensure the smoothest transfer possible. The Transfer Studies' general education courses 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.
