Take college classes at your high school
Concurrent Enrollment (CE) refers to college-credit bearing courses taught to high school students by college-approved high school teachers at the high school campus. Concurrent Enrollment is different than College Now! (courses which are held at the Allan Hancock College Campus or online after high school hours). If interested in the College Now! courses click on this link College Now!
The Concurrent Enrollment Plan will support the overall Allan Hancock College (AHC) mission of providing quality educational opportunities that enhance student learning and the creative, intellectual, cultural and economic vitality of our diverse community.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Concurrent enrollment is open to students in grades 11 and 12 enrolling in a maximum of 6 units each semester, and to students below grade 11 if approved by appeal.
All interested students will be required to submit:
- An online AHC Application for Admission
- A copy of their unofficial high school transcript
- Concurrent Enrollment Petition for Enrollment
- Concurrent Enrollment Appeal Form (if applicable)
A Concurrent Enrollment Appeal Form may be submitted for:
- Students requesting to enroll in more than 6 units (this includes units approved via the College Now! program)
- Students below grade 11, requesting to enroll in courses other than PROD 301
- Continuing Students who have not maintained a 2.00 AHC grade point average
Concurrent Enrollment students shall:
- Be subject to all of the College Now! eligibility standards, which are stated with the Concurrent Enrollment Petition for Enrollment form.
- 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.
APPLYING TO THE PROGRAM
- Contact your high school counselor for forms and dates.
- Request a copy of your high school transcript from your school counselor.
- As part of the college experience, once the paperwork is complete and verified by an AHC Admissions and Records representative, most students will register themselves, online, and should do so before the first date of the AHC class.
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).
An updated version of the Student/Parent Handbook 2019-2020 will be posted soon.
