Sometimes you have a very clear goal in mind as well as a vision for your future. Other times you’re uncertain what success will look like, but you still want to reach for it. Helping you find the path that’s right for you is the mission of academic advising. We start by helping you identify your academic and life goals – a vision for your future – and then we work backward from that long-term vision to plan the steps needed to bring it to life. If you’re new to AACC, one of our group advising sessions might be just what you need. If you’re already a student, touch base with an advisor any time your academic goals change or if you just would like confirmation that you’re on track.
New students are encouraged to make an advising appointment by calling 410-777-2307 as soon as they have applied and been properly assessed. Current students should log into MyAACC and schedule an appointment using Oasis.

During the busiest registration months, advisors are available Monday through Friday to assist students on a walk-in basis.
Closing time is extented to 7 p.m., Monday-Thursday in January and August.
Note: If you need comprehensive academic and transfer planning, you are strongly encouraged to schedule a weekday appointment when available.

If you have not already sent AACC's Office of Records and Registration your placement scores and transcripts, bring copies with you. If you've taken placement tests at AACC, the advisor will be able to access your scores.
Consider these questions in advance so that your advisor can help you research the type of degree or certificate that is required; help you decide if you will need to transfer to a four-year institution; help you determine which AACC program of study will best prepare you; and then which courses you should consider next.
Degree-seeking students must declare their program of study (major) after completing 24 credits. This helps us help you stay on track, and make sure the time you spend in class is maximized in meeting your academic goals. Not sure what to declare? Sometimes trying things and learning what doesn’t interest you is as important and finding things that do.
