What is Noncredit Counseling?

The purpose of noncredit and counseling is to ensure access to appropriate programs, student services, and designated noncredit courses to all students who can benefit; to facilitate the successful completion of student educational goals; and to enable students to transition into the workforce.

Our Mission

The noncredit counseling office is responsible for providing counseling services for students in six noncredit program areas:

  1. Adult Basic Education (ABE)
  2. English as a Second Language (ESL)
  3. Disabled/Adults with Disabilities
  4. Citizenship/Immigration
  5. Short-Term Vocational

Our program provides a range of services that include orientation, assessment, counseling and advising, coordination and training, and follow up. Counseling is available on a daily basis to assist students in these programs or who are interested in transitioning from noncredit courses into credit programs.

Counselor Spotlight

Noncredit Counselor

"I truly enjoy working as a counselor in the Community Education Program at Allan Hancock College. A highlight of my professional career is when our program hosts a graduation ceremony for our noncredit students; students who have earned an ESL certificate, GED or a computer certificate. It is extremely gratifying to see our students recognized for their hard work and to have their family and support system join them in this accomplishment."
