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. Just choose your course, register and make your payment.

To find a class, visit the online course search.

Upon registering for your course, regularly check your MyAACC account and AACC email for class and general updates from the college. For assistance accessing MyAACC, contact the Technical Call Center.

How to Register for Noncredit Classes

The new and improved registration system for noncredit classes is now open for classes starting in the fall 2022 term! Tutorial videos on how to search for classes and register in the new system are posted on this page. 

Register for Fall 2022 Noncredit Classes

Registration for fall 2022 classes is available in our new noncredit registration system at

To register, follow these steps: 

  1. Search for your class in the Noncredit Course Inventory.
  2. Select the course from the search results.
  3. Add the section you want to your cart.
  4. Select the appropriate fees. 
  5. Click Checkout.

Register for Summer 2022 Noncredit Classes

For 2022 summer classes, complete a Registration Request form. One of our staff members will call you to verify your identity and collect any final information over the phone once it's submitted.

When can I register?

When registration for a new noncredit term begins, online registration opens at 7 a.m. on the first day. Noncredit registration is open for each course until that course begins. We don't recommend waiting that long. Your course could fill up or be canceled if not enough students enroll.

How do I pay?

You can pay online using a credit card in the new noncredit registration system for noncredit classes starting with the fall 2022 term. You may also pay online using a waiver, third party payment, scholarship or Nelnet Payment Plan, but you must upload the supporting documentation to your student record or you will be dropped from the class. 

For summer 2022 classes, you can submit a registration request form and our staff can collect payment by credit card when we contact you to compete the processing of your form. Payment is due at the time of registration for noncredit classes. See our Noncredit Costs & Payment page for information.

What if I can't register online?

If the above registration options are not available to you, you may complete a noncredit PDF registration form. This PDF registration form has been customized to be submitted by email to or by fax to 410-777-4325. To protect your sensitive information, you cannot include your birth date or credit card information on the form.

Alternatively, you may register in person at our Arnold location. CEWD’s registration desk is in CALT 115, and is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

After registering with AACC for an online course offered in partnership with a vendor, check the Noncredit Distance Education page for information on additional steps required by the course vendor.
