Applying for a degree

To be awarded a degree, all requirements must be completed by the end of the semester.

I only have Hancock college credit.

If you have Advanced Placement (AP), CLEP, IB, military credit, refer to the next section below. 

Since you only have Hancock credit, you may be eligible for our degree auto-awarding program.  If DegreeWorks shows you are at 98% completed, you will receive an email approximately 4-weeks into the semester confirming auto-awarding.  The email will list all eligible degrees.  You may speak to a counselor for verification.  

To be eligible for auto-awarding, you must:

  • be currently taking classes at Hancock
  • only have Hancock credit 
  • be eligible for degree(s) requirements using the current catalog year

If you do not meet the above criteria, you are required to meet with a counselor to apply for your degree.  

I have transcripts at other colleges, AP, CLEP, IB, or military credit.

Below are steps to apply for a degree:

  1. Submit all official transcripts to our Admissions and Records Office for a course-to-course evaluation.
  2. Wait for an email verification from the Admissions and Records Office confirming your transcript has been received and evaluated.
  3. Schedule a counseling appointment for a thorough degree evaluation.  A counselor will ensure all your degree applicable credit will be inputted into DegreeWorks.
  4. If DegreeWorks shows 98% degree completion, upon your request, a counselor will apply for your degree.
