AACC to discuss at-home registration

Anne Arundel Community College will offer STARS registration for spring cycle classes at the Pasadena and Pascal senior centers.

This will give students who have previously taken a class through the college a convenient way to register for classes from their homes.

Representatives from the college will explain the procedure and answer questions at 10 a.m. Monday and 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Pascal Center, 125 Dorsey Road in Glen Burnie, and at 10 a.m. today and 12:30 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Pasadena center, 4103 Mountain Road.

Students will also be able to register for classes in person at the centers as they have done in the past. Registration for the spring semester runs from March 1 to 16. You must have a current senior center membership to register. Payment of the $40 registration fee may be made with a check, money order, or credit card.
