Students - Distance Learning

Welcome to Allan Hancock College Distance Learning Resources!

The Distance Education Department  provides students, faculty, and staff access to resources to support AHC’s commitment to helping students pursue their educational goals through multiple modes of delivery that promote access, convenience, and flexibility.

Allan Hancock College offers a growing number of online courses. Distance learning can be a great option for anyone with a full-time job, kids at home, or just a busy schedule!

Taking a class online can provide flexibility for students with busy work schedules or difficulties coming to campus.

It's very important to understand the importance of time management and independent study skills prior to enrollment.

Student readiness is critical to success when taking online courses. The California Community College's Online Educational Initiative has created a fantastic tutorial for online student readiness that can inform you if online learning is for you, and what you need to know to be a successful online student.

Medical Assisting Student

"I came to Allan Hancock College as an 'older' student. I was pleased to find out they offered the medical assisting program that I had been looking for. The campus has a relaxed, student-friendly atmosphere, and the teachers are well-educated and knowledgeable. I plan on becoming a certified medical assistant and hope to find a job in either an ob/gyn or Oncology office."
