Print copies of the fall 2013 Schedule at a Glance are available at all college sites and local public libraries, while supplies last. The Schedule at a Glance contains a basic listing of fall credit classes being offered at the time of publication. Students must still access the online Class Search to obtain the details they will need in order to plan their fall class schedule.
Many new, continuing and returning students must be assessed prior to enrolling. This is done through START (Student Testing, Advising, Retention and Transition). START is a process developed by Allan Hancock College to help students succeed in college. The assessment is not an entrance exam. Anyone 18 years or older who can benefit from instruction is eligible to attend Allan Hancock College.
Students with certain qualifications, including students taking classes for life-long learning or those with degrees, are exempt from assessment. For assessment requirements, dates and times of testing and a complete list of exemptions to assessment, please refer to the AHC Testing Center Web page (see “Student Services” on the drop down menu), or call 805.922.6966 or toll free 866.DIAL.AHC (342.5242) x3364.
For more registration information, call the Admissions & Records office at 805.922.6966 x3248. The toll free number in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties is 866.DIAL.AHC (342.5242) x3248.
