Student Ambassador Program
The Student Ambassador Program recruits qualified students to represent Allan Hancock
College in a number or initiatives, serving as role models and mentors to all students.
This group of trained student representatives provides the campus with an additional
resource of student leaders to assist new and current students in the admissions/registration
process, represent the college in outreach efforts, assist in campus wide events,
and promote the image of Allan Hancock College, including appearing in college promotional
materials. Student Ambassadors represent a group of positive, enthusiastic, and well-informed
representatives of the student body of Allan Hancock College, who are interested in
working with faculty, staff, and students to promote the college’s programs and services.
Student Ambassador Role
Student Ambassadors are trained to provide assistance during peak registration periods,
participate in visits to area high schools and college fairs to present the benefits
of the community college experience, provide campus tours to visiting schools and
groups, assist during special events and college-sponsored activities, and participate
in focus groups and panels, as needed, to provide information for improving student
services and information dissemination.

(ESL credits can apply) and earned minimum GPA of 2.0. They must be currently enrolled
in at least six credits per semester and plan to devote at least two semesters to
the Student Ambassador Program, while maintain an overall GPA or 2.0 or higher. Preferred

UCSB Transfer Student
I moved to the United States in 2012. My English was very limited, so I decided to enroll in noncredit ESL courses in the summer of that same year. By fall of 2013 after hard work and dedication, I was ready to transition to credit ESL. The sooner I started credit ESL the better, but as a new California resident the tuition was more expensive since I had to pay out of state tuition, so I decided to wait for a year to attend credit class at AHC. AHC has great student support programs that I utilized; for example, AIM, EOPS, CAN/TRIO, and the Tutorial Center. I recommend everyone to take advantage of these services and to ask for help from your instructors when needed.
