AACC has the option of offering online courses in lieu of on-location courses at Anne Arundel County public high schools at any time. This includes times of instructor shortages and while the local, state or federal government have determined there is a public health emergency. Cancellation of sections may occur if there are issues with instructor availability, if minimum enrollments are not met or due to other factors.
Open enrollment sections are available to both high school and non-high school students. AACC cannot guarantee available seats in sections and recommends students submit all registration paperwork to designated high school personnel prior to the first day of registration for the term at AACC.
Students attending the Center for Applied Technology-South (CAT-South) can earn college credits by enrolling in selected Career Technology Education (CTE) programs. You then just need to successfully complete your CAT- South program, and earn a C or better on the AACC college proficiency assessment(s). Grades below C will not be reflected on your AACC college transcript.
You can earn proficiency credit by completing this CTE program at Arundel High School:
