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.
