Graduation Checklist

Allan Hancock College offers two types of certificate programs, Certificate of Achievement and Certificate of Accomplishment. A Certificate of Achievement has been approved by the state and will be posted on the student’s transcript. A Certificate of Accomplishment will be posted on the student’s permanent record, but not on the student’s transcript. Certificate programs include only those courses that have a direct bearing upon specialized occupational competencies. For this reason there is no general education requirements in a certificate program.

steps to applying for a certificate

  1. Verify you have completed the certificate requirements by checking Degree Works. Degree Works is a degree audit tool which enables you to evaluate your current academic progress towards certificate/degree completion.  Log onto your myHancock portal and find Degree Works under your "student" tab. 
  2. Official copies of all transcripts from other colleges/universities attended must be on file with Admissions and Records. Mail transcripts to:

    Allan Hancock College
    ATTN: Admissions & Records
    Transcript Evaluator
    800 South College Drive
    Santa Maria,  CA  93454-6399

  3. If you have no external work from another college/university, you may print your Degree Works audit report and submit it with your application for a certificate to the Office of Admissions and Records. You are not required to meet with a counselor if all of your coursework is from Allan Hancock College. If you have external work from another college/university, you are required to see a counselor in order to apply for a certificate. Certificate requirements must be complete or completed by the end of the current semester. Your application for a certificate must be submitted by the scheduled deadline. See a list of applications. Refer to Important Dates for scheduled deadlines.

SPOTLIGHT

Matthew Jimenez

Matthew Jimenez
Software Engineering

When I joined MESA I found an atmosphere of very intelligent students, in which I have made friendships that are strengthened by our commitment to success. I am 31 years old and work full-time in order to support my growing family. Time management is vital to my success, and it has taken a while to find the right "recipe" of balance between school, work and family. MESA has given me important resources in the form of tutoring, access to potential internships, and help with the cost of books.
