It is VERY IMPORTANT, as a new student at Allegany College of Maryland, that you attend a New Student Orientation Session! You will learn about the many services that are available to you as a student, how to get involved and succeed academically, safety policies/services, and you'll also have opportunities to engage with College staff, faculty and other students (this will look a little different due to COVID-19). Please see below for details.
To schedule your Placement Test (if you haven't already)
Contact the Learning Commons at 301-784-5554. After you have finished with your Placement Test, you can stop by the Advising Center to schedule your classes!

Cumberland Campus - We are hoping to return to hosting in-person Orientation sessions for the Fall semester. Group sizes may be limited to comply with College protocols for COVID-19. You MUST register in advance to attend one of these sessions. We are also offering one evening session virtually on Zoom. Students can click on the green "Submit Registration" button below to reserve their space in one of the available sessions (in-person or Zoom).
If the available sessions below not work for your schedule or you're not comfortable with attending an in-person or Zoom session, then our Brightspace New Student Orientation module is perfect for you. This option can be completed online, at your own pace. An email with information on how to access this module will be sent to students who are registered for Fall classes via their ACM student email in mid-July.
Bedford Campus - Due to COVID-19 and the need to limit the number of people in attendance, there will be 3 Orientation session times offered for the Bedford Campus. Due to College protocols, session attendance is limited. You MUST register in advance to attend one of these sessions.
Please DO NOT show up to an Orientation session without a confirmed registration.
