As a community leader, we believe the residents of Anne Arundel County and beyond deserve the best care from highly trained health professionals. That’s why our goal each year is to help meet the continual need for competent and compassionate providers through high-quality, affordable programs taught by experienced professionals who are experts in their respective disciplines. Is this fast-growing field is right for you? AACC's School of Health Sciences is home to a wide range of health-related degrees and certificates that can prepare you for a career or transfer to a four-year college and beyond. Each of our health programs will help you develop skills needed for a high-demand job within our county and region. You’ll benefit from hands-on learning using state-of-the-art equipment, such as the simulation lab, and through clinical rotations with our many partners throughout the county.
AACC offers degrees and training in the field of health. Many of the programs through the School of Health Sciences require prospective students to attend an information session. These free, 90-minute sessions are provided throughout the year. For more information about Health Sciences programs and admissions, contact a member of our health sciences admissions team or call 410-777-7310.
AACC’s School of Continuing Education and Workforce Development also offers a wide range of noncredit health training and professional development. Trainings include assisted living management and nursing, basic IV and venipuncture techniques and phlebotomy technician, CPR and first aid, delegating nurse and nurse refresher, human services, medical coding, medicine aide, physical therapy, physician assistant, sterile processing, and therapeutic massage.

You are encouraged to submit transcripts electronically as this will significantly reduce the amount of time needed to process transcripts. For official transcripts the primary resource is Parchment. Transcripts can be accepted through a number of electronic formats (EDI, E-Script and National Student Clearinghouse). You should be able to request that transcripts be sent electronically from your prior institution to AACC via email@example.com. Transcripts submitted by mail will have a significantly increased processing time.
You may email your paper application as a PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the application is received, you'll receive a reply email. If you do not receive a reply within two business days, please email us again.
Do not email your full date of birth or Social Security number. These are not requested on your application and we want to make sure that no protected information is sent via email. A copy of your driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID is no longer required so you don't need to email a copy with your application.
Before emailing the address verification and supporting documentation that is required by your program of interest, white out financial, date of birth or other confidential information that may be on the documents.
In addition, paper applications may be mailed to:
