Still can't find what you're looking for?

Some students come to AACC knowing exactly what they want to do and where they want to do it. Others have no idea. If you reviewed the majors in the accordions above, but can't find the major you want, have a specific 4-year program with special requirements to which you wish to transfer or are still completely undecided, we have some additional options for you.

Custom Transfer

With the help of an advisor, you can customize our Transfer Studies, Associate of Arts (A.A.) to fit both Maryland general education requirements and the requirements of the specific program to which you wish to transfer. You can also customize this degree to pursue an area for which we offer courses, but don't have a specific degree.
