Welcome to Noncredit Counseling!
The mission of the Noncredit Counseling department is to help students enrolled in adult basic education, noncredit English as a Second Language, citizenship, and short-term vocational skills classes to navigate the educational systems of the college from admission until students reach their educational goals.
Estudiantes Unidos Spring 2020
Every spring and fall semester the Noncredit Counseling department puts together Estudiantes Unidos. This event provides noncredit students an opportunity to learn about AHC programs and services available to them as noncredit students and/or as credit students. This year the students will receive an AHC goody bag, food, orientation, and will participate in an activity.
