SASP Students with President Lindsay

The Student Achievement and Success Program is a support and retention program at Anne Arundel Community College designed to increase the academic success, retention, graduation and transfer of students who may have more barriers and challenges to overcome in order to realize their goals. In addition, these students are traditionally first generation, low income, under prepared and minority students.

Fall 2022 Schedule: Our physical office in the Truxal Library in Arnold will be open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. beginning Aug. 15. Remote services will still be available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We have varying days scheduled for presence at AACC at Arundel Mills.
