Request official transcripts of all previous college enrollment to be sent to the Allan Hancock College Admissions and Records office.
Your English and math skills will be assessed based off of your high school transcript information as reported in CCCApply when you apply for admission.
If you graduated from high school within the last 10 years, bring a copy of your unofficial high school transcript to a counselor to see which English and math classes you will need to take. See more information
In many cases, testing might actually result in a higher placement than your high school transcripts. You can also choose to take the English and math placement test.
