College Now!

College Opportunities for High School Students

The College Now! Program provides a special opportunity for local high school and home school students to attend Allan Hancock College while attending high school.

College Now! is different than Concurrent Enrollment (college courses which are held at local high schools during bell schedule). If interested in the Concurrent Enrollment program, visit Concurrent Enrollment webpage.

The College Now! program supports the overall Allan Hancock College mission of fostering an educational culture that values equity and diversity and engages students in an inclusive learning environment. We offer pathways that encourage our student population to achieve personal, career, and academic goals.
