Note: AACC courses and course prerequisites are subject to change. AACC and Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) meet annually to review and confirm AACC Dual Enrollment courses offered on location at AACPS high schools.

AACC will have 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 arising that preclude the course(s) running.

*Open enrollment courses are available to both high school and non-high school students. AACC cannot guarantee available seats in the courses and recommends students submit all registration paperwork to designated Broadneck 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.

Grades below C will not be reflected on your AACC college transcript.
