Anne Arundel Community College Information
There are approximately 100 Arundel HS students taking a fall ECAP (Early College Access Program) with AACC. The spring semester starts on January 23 and registration for classes start on November 10. Students who have taken classes at AACC can use their MYAACC account to schedule and pay for courses. Students will need to complete another ECAP application for the spring to receive the 50% tuition reduction. Send the ECAP application to me and I can secure the school signatures and deliver it to AACC. Contact me if you plan on taking another class in the spring.
New ECAP students will need to apply to AACC, set up their MYAACC account, send an ECAP application, register and pay for courses. Each 3-credit class at AACC is approximately $280. FARM students will pay a reduced amount of $100. Contact me if you plan on taking a class in the spring.
In the spring there will be three AACC classes with sections reserved for Arundel HS 11th and 12th grade students. These classes include ACA 100 Student Success Seminar, BPA 111 Introduction to Business and BPA 162 Business Communications. Books will be provided for students. Contact me if you would like to take all, or some of these classes.
If you are currently a senior and considering AACC as a full full-time student after graduation, please contact me. Remember now is a perfect time to apply for federal financial aid through FAFSA.
