NOTE:  Credits calculation is limited to those completed at AHC.  Credits completed are those which have been annotated to the student’s transcript with a final grade of D or better.  Completed credits do not include courses in progress because grades for any particular semester classes are not posted to a student’s transcript until priority registration for the following semester has already occurred.  (For example, summer classes are still in session when fall priority registration occurs; thus, summer class credits cannot be included when determining eligibility for fall priority registration.)

*Students who have more than 100 credits and meet established criteria may be eligible to appeal for priority registration.  Go to and click Apply & Register on the home page, then click Appeal for Priority Registration located under Register for Classes.

To view spring classes, visit the AHC website at and click Class Search in the upper right corner of the homepage.

Copies of a printed spring 2013 Schedule at a Glance will be available at all college locations and public libraries beginning Nov. 26.  However, this document only contains a basic listing of credit classes available at the time of publication.  Students must still access the online Class Search to obtain the detailed information needed to plan their registration. 

All students register for classes online via myHancock, which is accessed from the college website’s homepage.  Click the Apply & Register link on the home page.

New students and those without a user name and password must first apply for admission to the college, which is also completed online.  Click Apply & Register and then select the appropriate credit or Community Education admission application link.

All California residents pay a $46 per unit enrollment fee.  A typical semester-length class is three units.  In addition to enrollment fees, all students pay a $19 health fee per semester.  Students attending classes at the Santa Maria campus also pay up to $10 a year for the Student Center fee.  These fees continue to be among the lowest college costs in the nation.

Some fees for qualified low-income students may be waived.  In addition, there are many financial aid programs to help students meet college costs.  Call the financial aid office at 922-6966 ext. 3200 for details or go online to
