Course Reptition and Course Drop Deadlines
California Legislation Changes That Affect You—Starting Summer 2012
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, counseling and matriculation 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.

Fire Academy Student
"I chose the fire technology program at Allan Hancock because of what it can provide for me. It's giving me a step above the other academies and throughout the state. Graduates of this academy have gone on to be the chiefs and the captains that are going to be hiring us, so when we go in for interviews by being able to say that we graduated at this academy they know what we've experienced. Allan Hancock College has provided me with the physical and mental capabilities through the classroom training we do each day and the physical training we do each morning. This academy pushes you to your boundaries and then you begin to work on those weaknesses; your weaknesses then become your strengths so you're actually growing as a person. Allan Hancock has made a difference in my life it's really taught me who I am and where I want to be."
