All interested students will be required to submit:

  • An online AHC Application for Admission

  • A copy of their high school transcript

A Concurrent Enrollment College Now Appeal may be submitted for:

Concurrent Enrollment students shall:

  • Be subject to all of the College Now eligibility standards.
  • Meet any college prerequisites for the college course.

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. As part of the college experience, once the paperwork is verified by an AHC Admissions and Records representative, most student 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).
