Community Education

The Community Education program complements and expands the activities of the college to meet the dynamic educational, cultural, and life­-enrichment needs of the community through noncredit and fee-based programs and activities.

Community Education offers noncredit courses in the following 10 instructional areas:  Basic Skills, Citizenship, English as a Second Language, Family and Consumer Sciences, Health and Safety, Parenting, courses for Older Adults, courses for Adults with Disabilities, Short-Term Vocational, and Workforce Preparation.  Noncredit classes are supported by the state Chancellor’s Office and are free to the public.  The noncredit program provides adults the opportunity to learn English, earn a vocational certificate, prepare for the GED or citizenship tests, upgrade job skills, strengthen basic skills, or transfer to credit.

"I am a frequent visitor to the Allan Hancock College Library on the Santa Maria campus for many reasons. It's a place for me to enjoy some peace and quiet between classes, as well as study and complete my homework. The librarians are always nice with a warm welcome and very helpful. Students also receive free Wi-Fi and computer access."
