Noncredit Matriculation & Counseling

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. 

Our Mission

The noncredit matriculation and counseling office is responsible for providing counseling and matriculation services for students in six noncredit program areas:

  1. Adult Basic Education (ABE)
  2. English as a Second Language (ESL)
  3. Disabled/Adults with Disabilities
  4. Citizenship/Immigration
  5. 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.

Counselor Spotlight

Jose Millan
Noncredit Counselor

"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."
