At Anne Arundel Community College, we’re your partner in learning for the next stage of your life. Each year, more than 13,000 adults who are at midlife and older participate in the many learning opportunities available through the college. Our Center on Aging brings together many of AACC’s noncredit continuing education offerings intended for baby boomers and seniors. And by partnering with some of the area’s leading experts, we are able to hire instructors who can deliver the most relevant and helpful information to improve your quality of life. Register for one of our classes today! Or, if you’d like to be a part of our team of instructors and partners, contact Terry Portis.

Credit & Noncredit Courses

Credit Courses
AACC credit courses are tuition-free for seniors age 60 and older by the first day of the credit term. Seniors pay only a $25 per term registration fee, plus all applicable student and course fees.

Noncredit Courses
While these programs listed above are specially designed for our 50 and older population, don’t miss out on AACC’s many noncredit continuing education offerings for anyone 16 and older. Many continuing education courses are offered tuition-free to seniors age 60 and older by the first day of class. If a course has no dagger (+) after the price, and is not a senior adult course, it’s tuition-free for seniors 60 and older. You pay only a $7 registration fee and the course fees. For courses with a dagger, you pay the full registration, tuition and course fees.
