The Counseling Department offers informational workshops to educate students and assist them in reaching their academic/career goals.  See below for more details.    


All New Students must attend an NSO and AAW in order to receive priority registration.  Priority registration is so critical at a college campus.  You will have the opportunity to register for classes a lot sooner than other students.  In the NSO, you will learn "need to know information" and student support programs such as Counseling, Financial Aid, Tutoring and much more.  In the AAW, you meet with a counselor who will assist you in understanding your assessment results (START test) and help you develop a 1st semester plan as a new student.  Click the following link to view a list of dates for the NSO & AAW.


You will learn about our CNA, LVN, and RN requirements.  This includes, prerequisites, application deadlines, AHC graduation requirements, the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) requirements, and nursing priority registration.  This workshop is intended for all students interested in AHC's nursing program.  Prior to attending the workshop, students are required to complete an AHC admission application.  In addition, students will receive an abbreviated Student Education Plan.

ESL Spotlight

Maria Ayala
ESL Student

"Deciding to go back to school to learn English and obtain my GED has been one of the most important decisions I ever made. My credit ESL instructors guided and helped me to adjust to my new life as a student. They understood me as a student and as a person. Being a full-time worker, a full-time student, and a mother of three was not easy, but my instructors encouraged me to keep going. They spent time with me revising my writing and giving me feedback to improve my English, even after class time. They made me feel welcome and proud of being a student later in life. Now, I am a Hancock graduate with three AAs and am currently attending Cal Poly. I'm here because my instructors encouraged me to never give up. My ESL instructors believed in me even before I started believing in myself. It has been a long and not so easy road but I now know that I can reach all my goals."
