AACC Grants & Scholarships
Scholarships and grants are forms of financial aid you do not have to pay back.
These “gifts” are available from a variety of organizations including, but not limited to, the federal government, Maryland, community groups and AACC. Deadlines and requirements vary, so be sure to read any information provided carefully.
Early College Access Program (ECAP)
Offered in partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS), the Early College Access Program (ECAP) gives county high school students a 50 percent discount on AACC course tuition while they’re in high school.
Visit the AACC ECAP website for more information on steps to apply, tuition and scholarship information, and eligibility requirements.
Eligible seniors should print out their ECAP form and submit it to their School Counselor for approval. Please be sure to list the ECAP class you wish to take on the ECAP form prior to submitting to your School Counselor. A copy of your transcript will be included with your completed ECAP form. Please verify your senior year SPHS schedule prior to registering for an AACC class. Your AACC class should be appropriately scheduled around your SPHS classes. No SPHS schedule changes will be granted for AACC classes.
AACC Dual Credit List
Please note that if a student wishes to earn Dual Credit, he or she must submit an official AACC transcript to their School Counselor at the completion of the course. Dual credit can only be granted if prior approval is given by the principal. Consult with your School Counselor to discuss dual credit options. Failure to submit an official AACC transcript to the Counseling Center upon course completion could impact your graduation status.
