Teach for Community Education at AHC
Are you interested in teaching for Community Education?
Community Education hires instructors to teach noncredit and fee-based classes throughout the year. Advertisements for teaching opportunities are listed
on the Allan Hancock College Human Resources webpage.
The college is permitted to offer noncredit courses in the following 10 instructional
- Basic Skills,
- English as a Second Language,
- Health and Safety,
- Family and Consumer Sciences,
- Courses for Older Adults,
- Courses for Adults with Disabilities,
- Short-Term Vocational, and
- Workforce Preparation.
Noncredit classes are free classes funded by the state Chancellor’s Office. Instructors
must meet statewide minimum qualifications to teach noncredit courses, as established
by the state Chancellor’s Office. View the Minimum Qualifications (PDF)
If you are interested in proposing a new noncredit course, submit a Faculty Interest Form (PDF) along with your resume to Vickey Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org
Fee-Based/College for Kids
We also offer Community Service Fee-Based courses. Fee-based courses are self-sustainable,
do not receive public funding, and as a result, charge an enrollment fee as required
by the California Community College Chancellor's Office. Fee-based course topics
are broad ranging—college for kids, personal development, fitness, and career training.
Course offerings are determined by community need/interest.
If you are interested in developing a fee-based course, please submit a fee-based
course proposal. Please note that the Community Education class schedule is developed
six months in advance; courses will not be offered in the same semester in which the
proposal is submitted.
Fee Based Course Proposal and Instructions (PDF)
Deadlines to submit fee-based course proposals are as follows:
- To offer a class in the spring - July 1
- To offer a class in the summer - November 1
- To offer a class in the fall - December 1

When I joined MESA I found an atmosphere of very intelligent students, in which I have made friendships that are strengthened by our commitment to success. I am 31 years old and work full-time in order to support my growing family. Time management is vital to my success, and it has taken a while to find the right "recipe" of balance between school, work and family. MESA has given me important resources in the form of tutoring, access to potential internships, and help with the cost of books.
