There are many ways to take courses at AACC. Learn your way! You can choose the course format that works best for you; face-to-face, hybrid or online.
Check out our Ways to Take a Course page to learn more.
AACC's online credit courses are provided through a learning management platform called Canvas. Using Canvas, instructors provide course materials, lectures, assignments and opportunities to interact with others in a virtual classroom. Most of our face-to-face and hybrid courses use Canvas as well for communication, class updates and accessing course materials. Some instructors use additional tools like Zoom or Microsoft Teams to add to the learning experience.
We work hard to make our courses as accessible as possible in whichever format you choose. A basic laptop, electronic notebook or tablet with stable internet access should do the trick. Lacking any of the above? We can help with everything from discounted software to laptops on loan.
State and federal regulations require legal authorization for post-secondary institutions to offer distance education programs and courses to students who live outside the institution’s home state while taking classes. This may also include internships and clinical placements. If you reside outside of the state of Maryland, please review AACC’s State Authorizations.
