What Our Students Say


Jasmine Pratt had no savings and no family support. She became proactive in pursuing financial aid, including through the FAFSA. “... I was filling out anything and everything when it came to financial support. ... I knew I didn’t want to stop (college) once I started.”

Pratt was thrilled when she received news of scholarships, including the Maryland Promise Scholarship, a last-dollar scholarship available to students who enroll at a Maryland community college. She started school in fall 2020 and plans to graduate from AACC in 2023 with a major in psychology and a certificate in gender and sexuality studies. Her next step is to transfer to the University of Southern Florida.
