Students new to Allan Hancock College this fall, and some continuing and returning students, are required to take a START assessment prior to enrolling in credit classes.  START (Student Testing, Advising, Retention and Transition) offers a basic skills assessment and advising by academic counselors regarding course selection.  Assessment test results do not determine admission to the college.  All students will need to complete the online admissions application to receive their AHC student ID number (their “H” number) that is needed for the START test.  START sessions are available at the Santa Maria campus and the Lompoc Valley Center on a walk-in basis during specified days and times.  No appointments are necessary.  To view the START testing schedule, visit the Testing Center website at www.hancockcollege.edu (Quick Link “START Placement Testing”).
