Allan Hancock College Offers Something For Everyone This Summer

Six- and eight-week classes begin June 12

 MAY 31, 2017--Students still have more than 200 classes to choose from this summer at Allan Hancock College. A majority are six- and eight-week classes that begin the week of June 12. A few 10-week courses start the week of June 5. Students can register online for classes until the day before a class begins.

Dozens of general electives that satisfy requirements at Hancock, as well as at four-year universities within the University of California and California State University systems are available for students and can be completed in eight weeks or less. Many students find the summer an opportune time to knock out general education courses such as mathematics, biology, English and speech in a shorter period of time.

There are also a variety of career-specific classes available in the eight-week period such as athletic training, emergency medical services, environmental technology and viticulture.

The college also offers plenty of options for life-long learners or people looking to gain new skills. Students can learn how to use Excel or PowerPoint in CBIS 337 or CBIS 371; how to make specialty and wedding cakes in CA 323, how to perform first aid and CPR in PE 129, or even how to perform ballet or hip hop dance in DANC 160 or DANC 165.

Registration is also simultaneously open for nearly 1,000 fall courses, which begin the week of August 21.

Details about all available classes can be found at; click the Class Search link on the home page.  Class Search provides real-time information available 24/7.  For details about a specific class, click its blue CRN (Course Reference Number).

All California residents pay a $46 per credit enrollment fee.  In addition, all students pay a $16 health fee for the summer term.  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.
