With five eight-week terms, enrollment is open year-round. There are several steps to follow, so you should begin at least one month before the beginning of the term in which you plan to begin your studies. If you plan to use federal student aid or another form of financial assistance, we strongly encourage you to start even earlier. Please read the following steps carefully and complete each of them in order.

Complete the Enrollment Form Online

Whether you are enrolling in the undergraduate or graduate program, you may fill out the enrollment form here at no cost.

Nigerian Students

Every nation has admission policies and standards set by government agencies regulating higher education in that country. The ACT will adhere to these policies and standards while running US curricula in these countries. Therefore, Nigerian students seeking admission into our degree programs must fulfill both WAEC and JAMB policies and standards before being considered for admission. However, students will have the opportunity to seek admission with American College of Technology throughout the year, unlike traditional universities who admit students once in a year.

Credit Transfer

If you have already earned credits at another college or university, we don’t want them to go to waste. We accept eligible credits from both online and brick-and-mortar schools to put toward our Associate, Bachelor’s, and master’s degree programs. We’ll also take your previous work and life experience into consideration, and award credit based on everything you already know. That means you will save even more time and money when you choose our College.

Undergraduate students can transfer up to 75% of their bachelor’s degree program from other programs and institutions. Life and work experience, on the other hand, can make up a maximum of 25% of transfer credits. Graduate students can receive transfer credit for up to 50% of their program. We do not accept life or work experience credits at the graduate level.

If you have credits you would like to transfer; you will need to submit an official transcript from your previous school within 90 days of enrollment at ACT. Our Registrar will then evaluate your transfer credit eligibility and come up with an academic plan that ensures you are taking the minimum number of courses you need to graduate. To submit a transcript request, have your previous school mail your transcript to the following address: 801 N Stonestreet Ave, Rockville, MD 20850 or transcripts@actech.education.

 Program Admissions Requirements

To enroll in American College of Technology, prospective undergraduate students must have at least have graduated from high school or the equivalent. Master’s students must have at least a bachelor’s degree. Students must demonstrate their ability to complete college-level coursework by satisfying our academic eligibility requirements.

All students must be accepted by American College of Technology through the admissions process. Students that are accepted are done so provisionally and are not considered fully matriculated students until they have successfully passed 18 credits worth of courses with American College of Technology. See Academic Eligibility Requirements for more information.

 

For non-native English speakers, we require students to demonstrate English proficiency based on the TOEFL or have successfully completed at least one year in post-secondary education where the primary language of instruction was in English. For those taking the TOEFL, undergraduate students must have a 61 internet or 500 paper score. Graduate students must have a 71 internet or 530 paper score. Undergraduate students may also demonstrate proficiency via a score of 2.8 or higher on the Duolingo Test at englishtest.duolingo.com; for graduate students, the Duolingo requirement is 3.8 or higher.

 Systems Requirement

Most of our courses are asynchronous which means students can log in and complete academic activities at their own convenient time. Our technology-based learning provides a unique interactive experience with faculty members and students. Our three-credit courses are conducted in an accelerated semester format, covering sixteen weeks of material in just eight weeks. Students should expect to spend 10-15 hours per week in learning activities related to each course. Every Monday morning a course is in session, new learning projects are presented to the student which are to be completed by the following Monday. All students must have a personal Internet email address and Web access. In many cases, access through public libraries and free email services are sufficient. Check Computer Requirements page for more information.

Examinations (Nigerian Students only)

Our exams are customized and personified. There is no point in making people take group exams. Examinations are like life challenges; they need to be faced and solved individually. The idea of making students write exams same time put some people into disadvantages. What if they are not feeling ok that day, what about sickness? Our students can make an exam appointment anytime they feel comfortable. The appointment must be made online at least two weeks before the date. The exam centers will be open Monday to Sunday. The center will have two sessions per day, 9am-1pm, and 1pm-5pm Monday to Saturday, and 1pm-5pm on Sunday. This opportunity will give those with a busy schedule to take exams on Sundays.
