College Opportunities for High School Students

The College Now! Program provides a special opportunity for local high school and home school students to attend Allan Hancock College while attending high school.

High school students who meet the College Now! requirements and obtain the necessary permission from their principal or designee may enroll in approved courses.

The approved course list and the Petition for Enrollment form are available at the bottom of this page.

College Now! Requirements:

  • Be at least junior or senior high school status.
  • Reside and be enrolled in Santa Barbara or San Luis Obispo county high schools or home schools.
  • Students who have previously attended AHC must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA at AHC to continue in the program.
  • Meet with their high school counselor to discuss eligibility, academic requirements, and the rigor of college coursework.
  • Complete the College Now! Petition for Enrollment form; and obtain necessary signatures (high school principal/designee and parent/guardian).
  • Enroll in a maximum of six (6) units per semester.
  • Submit a completed AHC College Now! Petition for Enrollment form and unofficial high school transcripts prior to enrollment to the AHC Admissions & Records office or at the Santa Ynez Valley, VAFB, or Lompoc Valley Center offices.

College Now! students may submit their completed College Now! petition for enrollment form and unofficial high school transcripts beginning:

Now through October 12 for Term 2 classes beginning October 15

November 1 for the winter & spring 2019 semesters

Students must submit a separate Petition for Enrollment for each semester a student chooses to enroll.  (If a student chooses a summer and fall course, the student must submit a petition for EACH semester, as the CN process is semester specific).

The Enrollment Fee is waived for approved College Now! students. However, College Now! students must pay the Health, Student Photo ID (optional), Student Center (Santa Maria campus only), Student Representation and Parking fees. Total fees will be approximately $20 to $46.50 per semester.  Books are additional.  All other fees, including Nonresident Tuition (if applicable), apply.  Most nonresident College Now! students will not be required to pay nonresident fees; however, nonresident tuition is not waived for those students enrolled in high school as international exchange students. 

Registration dates for College Now! students:

Term 2 - Now through October 12

Winter 2019 - November 26 - December 14, 2018

Spring 2019 - November 26 - January 21, 2019
