Wide Variety of Online Classes Still Available for Fall Semester

Online classes remain a popular choice for college students

AUGUST 13, 2014--More than 80 online classes are still available at Allan Hancock College this fall.  Online classes have proven to be a popular option for many busy college students who enjoy the flexibility and convenience that they provide.  Students can complete their coursework at their own pace at home or on campus computers, which helps them accommodate work, family and/or transportation constraints.

Details about the online classes are available via the Allan Hancock College website at www.hancockcollege.edu; click Class Search in the upper right corner of the home page, and then select Online in the Location box.

Some online classes require an orientation prior to the start of classes.  Orientation details are available via Class Search by clicking the blue class CRN.

Online students living outside the college’s area may request test proctoring.  For details, visit the Allan Hancock College Testing Center (Quick Link “Testing”).

In addition to online classes, more than 500 onsite classes are still available this fall at the college’s Santa Maria campus and at the Lompoc Valley, Solvang and Vandenberg AFB centers.  For details about these classes, search by location via the online Class Search.

Registration for all fall credit classes continues through Aug. 17.  Many classes begin the week of Aug. 18, with Fast Track classes starting throughout the semester.  Register online at www.hancockcollege.edu; click the Apply & Register link on the home page.  After August 18, students can register with an add code from the instructor. 

All new students and students without a user name and password must first apply to the college before registering for classes.  Access the online admission application by clicking the Apply & Register link on the home page.

Fees continue to be the lowest nationwide.  All California residents pay a $46 per credit enrollment fee.  In addition, all students pay a $19 health fee.  Students attending classes at the Santa Maria campus also pay up to $10 a year for the Student Center fee.  Other minimal fees may apply.

Financial aid is available.  To find out if you qualify, contact the Santa Maria campus Financial Aid office at (805) 922-6966 ext. 3200 or finaid@hancockcollege.edu

All new and returning students (those students not enrolled in the previous semester) must apply to the college by completing an online admissions application, accessed by clicking the Apply and Register link.

Print copies of the fall 2014 Schedule at a Glance are available at all college sites and local public libraries, while supplies last.  The Schedule at a Glance contains a basic listing of fall credit classes being offered at the time of publication.  Students must still access the online Class Search to obtain the details they will need in order to plan their fall class schedule.

Many new, continuing and returning students must be assessed prior to enrolling.  This is done through START (Student Testing, Advising, Retention and Transition).  START is a process developed by Allan Hancock College to help students succeed in college.  The assessment is not an entrance exam.  Anyone 18 years or older who can benefit from instruction is eligible to attend Allan Hancock College.  Students with certain qualifications, including students taking classes for life-long learning or those with degrees, are exempt from assessment.  For assessment requirements, dates and times of testing and a complete list of exemptions to assessment, please refer to the AHC Testing Center Web page (see “Student Services” on the drop down menu), or call 922-6966 or toll free 1-866-DIAL AHC (342-5242) ext. 3364. 

For more registration information, call the Admissions & Records office at 922-6966 ext. 3248.  The toll free number in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties is 1-866-DIAL AHC (342-5242) ext. 3248.
