1Apply online, it’s free. You will receive a myHancock account username and password, including a student ID number, also known as an H #. You will need this information to register for classes. NOTE: Have you attended another college/university? If the answer is yes, you are required to submit all official transcripts to the Admissions and Records office. If you are a California Dream Act student with a government issued social security #, you may complete the online admission application and you must also submit the AB540 Non-Resident Exempt waiver to the Admissions and Records Office.  If you do not have a government issued social security #, you must complete a paper admissions application and an AB540 Non-Resident Exempt waiver.  Both documents are available at our Admissions and Records Office (Admissions and Records Office ext. 3248).

1Take the placement test (START).  All new students are required to take the START test.  Your reading, writing, and math skills will be assessed. Check out the START study guide before you test.
