Who we are

The College Achievement Now (CAN) program is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Education, TRIO Student Support Services grant. The program provides a variety of services to students who are academically or financially disadvantaged, or who face physical or learning challenges. Our staff is committed to helping students succeed. CAN students are bright, motivated, and goal-driven scholars who are looking for support to help them achieve their goals.

What We Do

The purpose of our program is to increase retention and graduation rates at Allan Hancock College and to increase transfer rates to four-year colleges and universities. We aim to help students achieve and maintain academic success. Our students are expected to keep a satisfactory overall GPA and to complete their Hancock education in less than four years. See our “Program Benefits” section for more information about our services.

CAN Success Story

Mariela Martinez

Mariela Martinez
Mariela came to the U.S. when she was 13 years old. She graduated from a local high school here in Santa Maria and began her college career at AHC in 2008. Mariela's academic and career goals are to master the English language and give back to her community as a social worker. She knew she would transfer to a university and pursue a Bachelor's degree, so she applied to College Achievement Now (CAN) to receive transfer counseling. While at Hancock, Mariela also participated with the "green" club, Cal-SOAP, EOPS and volunteered at her church and local charities. She is now attending Fresno State as a junior and plans to graduate in 2014.
