The Early College Access Program (ECAP) allows Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) students to take classes at AACC tuition free! Some of our courses are even taught at select high schools during the school day. Our classes are convenient to fit your schedule and are offered in person, online or in a hybrid format.
The Early College Access Program (ECAP) allows qualifying home-instruction students living in Anne Arundel County and students attending participating private schools to receive a 50% reduction in tuition for their classes.
Some AACC courses are dual credit, awarding both college and high school credit to the student. Dual credit must be preapproved by Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS).
Successfully complete an exam for a specially-designed high school advanced placement course.
AACC has partnered with AACPS to identify high school programs aligned with our college course(s). If you are an AACPS student who successfully completes one or more of these programs, you can take the AACC college proficiency assessment right in your high school at no cost. Pass the proficiency assessment with a grade of C or better and your assessment score will be the grade for the AACC course on your college transcript. Grades below a C will not be reflected on your AACC transcript.

AACC and AACPS have also partnered to create opportunities to earn articulated college credit. Legal articulation agreements detail how students enrolled in identified AACPS high school pathways, can become eligible to received free articulated AACC credit. Students must meet all the academic requirements and enrollment guidelines outlined in the articulation agreements and the AACPS High School Program of Study booklet. All tuition and related fees for articulated credits will be waived for those students meeting the requirements.
