Course Reptition and Course Drop Deadlines

California Legislation Changes That Affect You—Starting Summer 2012

Course Attempts

Students may attempt a course no more than three times in their complete academic history at Allan Hancock College. This includes any course in which the student has received any grades including W, D, F NC and/or NP.

Under specific circumstances a student may request to attempt a course more than three times by submitting an appeal form to the Counseling Office. The appeal request will be evaluated by the dean of counseling or designee.

A student should always check with an academic counselor before dropping a course as this may have a negative impact on his/her record. Contact the Counseling Department by calling 805 922-6966 ext. 3293.

Federal financial aid regulations require that all course attempts be counted. This may affect your financial aid. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 805 922-6966 ext. 3205.

Last Day to Drop Without a W Grade

The deadline to drop a course without a W grade has changed and now happens earlier in the term. The last day to drop without a W grade is the same day as the final day to drop a course and receive a refund. In some cases this date is the first day of the class or before the class begins.

Find the last day to drop without a W grade by Login to myHancock, click the Student Tab, click My Class Schedule under the myHancock Stuff Channel and click on print page.

Federal financial aid regulations require that all of course attempts be counted. This may affect your financial aid. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 805 922-6966 ext. 3205.

ESL Spotlight

Maria Ayala
ESL Student

"Deciding to go back to school to learn English and obtain my GED has been one of the most important decisions I ever made. My credit ESL instructors guided and helped me to adjust to my new life as a student. They understood me as a student and as a person. Being a full-time worker, a full-time student, and a mother of three was not easy, but my instructors encouraged me to keep going. They spent time with me revising my writing and giving me feedback to improve my English, even after class time. They made me feel welcome and proud of being a student later in life. Now, I am a Hancock graduate with three AAs and am currently attending Cal Poly. I'm here because my instructors encouraged me to never give up. My ESL instructors believed in me even before I started believing in myself. It has been a long and not so easy road but I now know that I can reach all my goals."
