Graduation Checklist

Steps to Apply for an Associate Degree

You are required to see a counselor in order to apply for an associate degree. Degree requirements must be completed by the end of the semester in which you are planning to apply. An application for an associate degree must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records by the scheduled deadline. Refer to Important Dates for scheduled deadlines.

Step 1


Verify you will complete an associate degree by the end of the semester in which you are planning to apply.  You are able to verify if you have met associate degree requirements by using DegreeWorks.  DegreeWorks is a degree audit tool which enables you to evaluate your academic progress towards certificate/degree completion.  If you will complete your degree by the end of the semester, you are required to see a counselor to submit an application for an associate degree.

If you are a distance learning student and planning to file an application for an associate degree, you will need to complete an Authorization to Release Information Form, which allows a counselor to correspond with you via phone and/or email.

Step 2


If you have attended other colleges/universities, ensure that all official transcripts are on file with the Office of Admissions and Records. All official transcripts must be on file in order to complete an application for an associate degree. Have transcripts mailed to:

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

If you are using courses outside of AHC to fulfill major requirements, you are required to schedule an appointment with a counselor to complete a transcript evaluation.  Courses completed outside of AHC will be approved by the appropriate instructional department. A counseling appointment is required for this process. 

Step 3


After steps one and two have been completed, you are ready to apply for an associate degree. Students with AHC courses only are encouraged to see a counselor on a walk-in. Students with external transcripts are required to schedule an appointment. To get started, print the appropriate application for a degree. See a list of applications.     

Distance learning students are required to mail an Authorization to Release Information form and a signed Application for an Associate Degree to:

Allan Hancock College
ATTN: Counseling Department
800 South College Drive
Santa Maria, CA  93454

Please check important dates for submission deadlines.
