If you’re interested in taking a class or series of classes for personal enrichment, career development or certifications that don’t involve college credit, you are a noncredit student. Noncredit students don’t need to apply for admission to AACC. You just choose your course, register and make your payment.

How to Register for Noncredit Classes

Noncredit registration is open for each course until that course begins. We don't, however, recommend waiting that long. Your course could fill up or be canceled if not enough students enroll.

Payment is due at the time of registration. Not all payment methods are accepted through every registration method (e.g. you can't fax a check). See our noncredit costs and payment page for additional information.


New and returning students can register online through MyAACC. It's fast. It's convenient. It's secure.  


If you're a brand new student, you can create an account to access online registration by completing an Online Personal Identification form. Your user name and instructions for setting up your password will be sent to the email you provided. Check your spam folder if you do not receive the email within an hour from

Before you begin, locate the course number (i.e. ABC-123) for the course you'd like to take and have your credit card ready (Visa, American Express, MasterCard, Discover).

Follow these five steps after you have your login to MyAACC.
  1. Log on to MyAACC.
  2. Select Self Services from the Menu in the upper left-hand corner.
  3. Select Continuing Education Students.
  4. Select Registration - Continuing Education Classes
  5. Follow the prompts.


If you have not attended AACC in the past five years, you may need to have your account reactivated. Contact the Technical Call Center at 410-777-4357 for assistance. Then you’ll receive an email with information on how to reactivate your account and manage your password.
