Online Credit Courses @ AACC

Classes offered over the Internet--anytime, anyplace.

The convenience, flexibility, and the power of Internet technology--combined with personal interactions between faculty and learner--create a learning environment conducive for academic success and personal achievement.

Online courses start and end according to the published schedule of classes. The syllabus, instructional materials, and assignments are posted within the course site. Learner-learner and learner-faculty interactions take place online. Learners submit assignments electronically according to due dates established by the instructor; learners may, however, be required to take exams or assessments at a testing center or in the proctored setting.

Anne Arundel Community College began offering online courses in 1996. To date, we offer over 300 distinct courses including nine degree programs.

To participate in online courses, you should have:

  • A good understanding of computer hardware and software applications and the Internet
  • Good time management skills
  • Self-motivation
  • Access to certain technology, see Technical Requirements - Canvas under Related Links
