Concurrent Enrollment

Hancock students studying on the grassConcurrent Enrollment (CE) refers to college-credit bearing courses taught to high school students by college-approved high school teachers at the high school campus. Concurrent Enrollment is different than College Now! (courses which are held at the Allan Hancock College Campus or online after high school hours). If interested in the College Now courses click on this link College Now!

The Concurrent Enrollment Plan will support the overall Allan Hancock College (AHC) mission of providing quality educational opportunities that enhance student learning and the creative, intellectual, cultural and economic vitality of our diverse community.

Concurrent enrollment is open to students in grades 11 and 12 enrolling in a maximum of 6 units each semester, and to students below grade 11 if approved by appeal.         

All interested students will be required to submit:

A Concurrent Enrollment / College Now Appeal Form may be submitted for:

  • Students requesting to enroll in more than 6 units (this includes units approved via the College Now! program)
  • Students below grade 11, requesting to enroll in courses other than PROD 301
  • Continuing Students who have not maintained a 2.00 AHC grade point average

 Concurrent Enrollment students shall:

  • Be subject to all of the College Now! eligibility standards, which are stated with the Petition for Enrollment form.
  • Meet any college prerequisites for the college course.
  • Take college-mandated assessment tests (when required) which will be offered on-site at the high school or at the college.

Students will be assessed using the same methods (e.g., papers, portfolios, quizzes, labs, etc.) as students in on-campus sections.


Contact your high school counselor for forms and dates. Request a copy of your high school transcript from your school counselor. As part of the college experience, once the paperwork is complete and verified by an AHC Admissions and Records representative, most students will register themselves, online, and should do so before the first date of the AHC class.

START: Student Testing, Advising, Retention and Transition

AHC is committed to your success as a student; therefore, we have developed START to assist you. The START program includes an assessment of your basic skills in reading comprehension, sentence skills, and math; an orientation to the college; and advising by academic counselors regarding your course selection.

Student Success is a process that brings Allan Hancock College and a student, who registers for credit classes, into a partnership with the purpose of realizing the student’s educational goals through the college’s established programs, policies and requirements. Therefore, the START program is required before enrolling in any math or English course or any course that has a math or English prerequisite.


The enrollment fee is waived for most high school students taking a concurrent enrollment course. However, students may be required to pay for books and/or the Student Health Fee. (Verify expenses with your high school counselor).
