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.

SPOTLIGHT

Janel Case
Biomedical Engineering

Graduating high school with honors and realizing I did not have the monetary means to go off to a university like I had always dreamed about felt like a setback. Being at a community college, for my first semester, felt like a detriment to my education. Despite this I began to reach out to other students and was referred by a student to a program called MESA. MESA has shaped my educational career.

With this kind of strong foundation I have been able to excel in my science, mathematics, and engineering courses.
