Have you only attended Hancock?


Use DegreeWorks to verify you will complete an associate degree(s) for the most current semester.  If you are at 98% of your degree(s) objective, you may be automatically awarded your degree(s) once grades for the most current semester are finalized.  After you have verified your degree completion through DegreeWorks, you may see a counselor for verification.  We encourage you to see a counselor on a drop-in.  Contact counseling for drop-in hours by dialing (805) 922-6966 ext 3293.   

Have you attended other colleges/universities?


Use DegreeWorks to verify you will complete an associate degree for the most current semester.  If you are at 98% of your degree objective, you are required to schedule a counseling appointment to determine degree completion.  If you haven't done so, all your official transcripts must be sent to our Office of Admissions and Records.  Have transcripts mailed to:

Allan Hancock College

Once your transcripts have been received, you may schedule a counseling appointment by dialing (805) 922-6966 ext 3293.
