What is Noncredit Matriculation & Counseling?
The purpose of noncredit matriculation and counseling is to ensure access to appropriate
programs, student services, and designated noncredit courses to all students who can
benefit; to facilitate the successful completion of student educational goals; and
to enable students to transition into the workforce.
In 1997-98 the state legislature enacted new legislation (AB 1542, AB 107) which extended
the provisions of matriculation to students enrolled in designated noncredit classes,
courses and programs, and appropriated a budget allocation to this effort.
The noncredit matriculation and counseling office is responsible for providing counseling
and matriculation services for students in six noncredit program areas:
- Adult Basic Education (ABE)
- English as a Second Language (ESL)
- Disabled/Adults with Disabilities
- Short-Term Vocational
Our program provides a range of matriculation services that include orientation, assessment,
counseling and advising, coordination and training, and follow up. Counseling is available
on a daily basis to assist students in these programs or who are interested in transitioning
from noncredit courses into credit programs.

"I truly enjoy working as a counselor in the Community Education Program at Allan Hancock College. A highlight of my professional career is when our program hosts a graduation ceremony for our noncredit students; students who have earned an ESL certificate, GED or a computer certificate. It is extremely gratifying to see our students recognized for their hard work and to have their family and support system join them in this accomplishment."
