TUITION WAIVERS AND REDUCTIONS
Student notification to Cashier's Office of existence of any type of waiver is required with each term registration. Applicable waivers/reductions include Social Security Retired Disabled, Maryland National Guard, and Health Manpower Shortage or Statewide programs. Waivers and reductions will not be applied without applicable student payment unless student has approved and documented financial aid or tuition assistance. Contact the Cashier's Office for information, 410-777-2236.
Jump Start participants may qualify to receive an institutional scholarship for up to 50% of their tuition cost. Contact the Admissions Office, 410-777-2246, for information.
For Dream Act Information, see Important Links to the right. Or call Admissions on 410-777-2152.
When you register for any class (credit or noncredit), you assume a financial responsibility for it. To cancel this responsibility, you must officially drop the class by the drop date. See schedule of classes for dates specific to each term.
If you are entitled to a refund in accordance with the refund policy in the college catalog, refunds are issued approximately 15 days after the date class is dropped. Only checks are issued unless 100% of your total payments were received via credit card, and the charges were made within the past 90 days. In that case the college routinely credits directly to the credit card(s) used to make payment. Call Cashier's Office for details, 410-777-2236.
File a drop/add form with the Registration Office or drop by STARS, 410-777-2241 (noncredit classes only), or on MyAACC. If you don't formally drop a class by the term-specific dates, you will continue to be financially responsible for it and will receive a failing grade. Classes dropped on or before the drop date are eligible for refund of tuition and related fees. Shorter academic terms will have a prorated refund period. See schedule of classes for details.
For noncredit courses, no refund will be given after the first day of the class. Contact Continuing Education for details, 410-777-2325.
WITHDRAWING FROM A CLASS (CREDIT ONLY)
If you cannot complete a credit class, you must withdraw from it to avoid a failing grade. You may withdraw after the drop date and through the "last day to withdraw" listed in the credit class schedule for each term. An entry of "W" will appear on your record. To withdraw, file a form with the Records office on the Arnold campus, Glen Burnie Town Center, Fort Meade Army Education Center, Arundel Mills site or on MyAACC. You continue to be financially responsible for withdrawn classes. However, credit classes scheduled for 8 weeks or more that are withdrawn within the 5 calendar days after the official drop date are eligible for a 60% reduction in tuition and fees.
WITHDRAWING AFTER THE FINAL WITHDRAWAL DATE
Contact Counseling, Advising and Retention Services to help you withdraw. See the college catalog for information.
If you have received a federal grant or loan assistance, a portion of the funds may be owed to the Federal program if you withdraw from your classes. For details call Financial Aid, 410-777-2203.
Department offices attempt to contact students about canceled courses in advance of the start dates of the classes. Information on canceled off-campus classes is available at the main office of each center.

- If one or more of your classes are canceled and you don’t replace them, and a refundable credit is created, the Business Office will issue your refund up to two to three weeks after the last day to drop.
- If 100% of your total payments was received via credit card, and the charges were made within the past 90 days, the college may credit your refund directly to the original credit card used to make the payment.
