Hancock College Spring Registration Open

Hundreds of spring classes are being offered at the Allan Hancock College Santa Maria campus, many of them starting the week of Jan. 23. Registration for all spring classes is under way and continues through Jan. 22.

Nearly 1,000 semester-length classes are offered. Other eight-week classes begin Jan. 23 or March 22. Dozens of short-term classes that last less than eight weeks begin throughout the semester.

Short-term and eight-week courses are designed for students who prefer shorter, more intense study. Eight-week classes offer the credit of a full semester course.

Spring classes are also available at the Lompoc Valley, Vandenberg AFB and Solvang centers, and online.

“For some students, the eight-week time frame fits their schedules better,” said Nohemy Ornelas, vice president of student services. “Others enroll in eight-week classes because they enjoy the intensity and focus of the shorter courses.”

To view all spring classes, visit the AHC website at and click the Class Search link on the homepage. Search options include subject, location, instructor, number of credits, and more.

All students register online via myHancock, which is accessed from the home page. Click the Student tab, then Register/Add/Drop/Search Classes.

High school students can take advantage of Hancock’s Concurrent Enrollment program. Students at Cabrillo, Orcutt Academy, St. Joseph, Santa Maria, Pioneer Valley, Lompoc, Righetti and Santa Ynez high schools can register for a class taught at the high school and simultaneously receive high school and college credit.

Classes include Elementary Statistics (MATH 123), Symphonic Band (MUS 140), Elementary French (FRCH 101) and American Government (POLS 103).

Spring Community Education classes begin the week of Jan. 23 and are offered throughout the community and at all campus locations. Courses offered include Stress Management (HEAL 7104), Spanish in the Workplace (VOCE 7018B), Preparation for Citizenship (CITZ 7000A) and Green Gardening (VOCE 7622).

Students can register online now, or receive registration assistance in person at Community Education (bldg. S) on the Santa Maria campus.

For more details on registration, contact the college’s Admissions and Records office at 922-6966 ext. 3248 or [email protected].

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
