Instructors must meet statewide minimum qualifications to teach noncredit courses, as established by the state Chancellor’s Office.

Fee-Based/College for Kids
We also offer Community Service Fee-Based courses. Fee-based courses are self-sustainable, do not receive public funding, and as a result, charge an enrollment fee as required by the California Community College Chancellor's Office. Fee-based course topics are broad ranging—college for kids, personal development, fitness, and career training. Course offerings are determined by community need/interest.
If you are interested in developing a fee-based course, please submit a fee-based course proposal along with your resume. You may find the proposal templates under the Faculty Resources page. You can submit proposal and resume to: CommunityEducation@hancockcollege.edu.
Please note that the Community Education class schedule, Spectrum, is developed six months in advance; fee-based courses will not be offered in the same semester/term in which the proposal is submitted.
Deadlines to submit fee-based course proposals are as follows:
- To offer a class in the summer - Nov. 1
- To offer a class in the fall - Dec. 1
- To offer a class in the spring - July 1
