Registration Continues for Spring Classes at Allan Hancock College, Classes Begin Jan. 22

Hundreds of classes to choose from!

DECEMBER 21, 2018--Registration for spring classes at Allan Hancock College’s Santa Maria campus is currently under way with nearly 900 courses still available. Many begin the week of Jan. 22, and registration will continue until Jan. 21.

Students will be able to fulfill their general education requirements with the many options available, and gain hands-on experience in various semester-length and eight-week courses, including those in auto body, accounting, art, chemistry, law enforcement, music, and much more.       

Spring classes are offered at the Lompoc Valley, Vandenberg AFB, and Santa Ynez Valley centers, and also online.

Many eight-week classes begin Jan. 22 or Mar. 25. Dozens of short-term classes, which run less than eight weeks, begin throughout the semester. These shorter courses are offered in areas like agribusiness, health education, global studies, sociology, speech communication, and welding technology.

“For some students, the eight-week time frame fits their schedules better,” said Nohemy Ornelas, vice president of student services. “Others enroll in eight-week classes because they enjoy the intensity and focus of the shorter courses.”

To view all winter and spring classes, visit the AHC website at and click the Class Search link on the homepage. Search options include subject, location, instructor, number of credits, and more.

Registration for all Allan Hancock College classes is available around the clock via the myHancock portal linked in the upper right section of the college’s homepage at Log in to the portal, select Students, then Registration/Add/Drop, located in the Registration section.

New students and those without a user name and password must first apply for admission to the college before registering for classes. To access the online admission application from the website homepage, select the Apply & Register link, then find the appropriate application.

The enrollment fee for California residents is $46 a unit, meaning a typical three-unit class costs $138. Other minimal fees apply. For registration information, call 1-805-922-6966 or toll free 1-866-DIAL AHC (342-5242) ext. 3248.
