Anne Arundel Community College

Payment is due at the time of registration for noncredit AACC courses. If you are paying by Nelnet payment plan, you must enroll in a payment plan before you can register. Before proceeding with your payment plan, please ensure you can answer yes to the following questions:
  •  Are seats still available in the section?
  • Do you have an AACC ID#? 
  • Is the start date for your classes after today?
  • Have you calculated the correct total cost for your classes, including any out of county or out of state fees?
  • Have you identified your latest payment plan end date based on the class(es) that will be included in your payment plan?

Payment Plan Requirements

It is your responsibility to sign up for a payment plan that meets the required parameters: 
  • Payment plans must start before the start date of all classes covered by that payment plan. 
  • Payment plans must end two weeks before the latest end date of any classes covered by that payment plan. 
Please Note: Your plan end date will be the month listed in the heading and the day you select from the “Available Payment Days”. If none of the days listed will give you a plan that ends two weeks prior to the end date of your class(es) – enroll in a plan one month earlier.  If there are no plans ending a month earlier, we do not have a plan that fits your needs.

If you choose a plan that does not meet those parameters, the college will attempt to adjust your payment plan schedule end date to meet the required parameters. If that is not possible, the college will terminate the payment plan and you will have to sign up for a new plan. There is a non-refundable enrollment fee for each payment plan you enroll in. 

If you have any questions about your payment plan parameters, please contact the Instructional Support Center at or 410-777-2325.
