The Counseling Department offers informational workshops to educate students and assist them in reaching their academic/career goals.  See below for more details.    


All new students must complete an orientation and a AAW in order to receive priority registration. Priority registration is extremely beneficial at a college campus. You will have the opportunity to register for classes much sooner than other students. In the orientation, you will learn about student support services, college success tips, and other important "need to know" information.  To access the online orientation, log onto your myHancock account and go to your "student" tab.  In the AAW, you will meet with a counselor who will assist you in understanding your assessment results (START test) and help you develop a first semester plan as a new student. View a list of on campus orientation/ AAW dates.


The Counseling Department has developed this workshop to help students understand his/her academic and/or progress standing.  Students will learn strategies to get back on track and regain good standing with the college.  The workshop will also cover the consequences of being on probation such as unit limitation, financial aid eligibility, and priority registration.  Students who receive a probation email notification are strongly encouraged to attend the workshop.

My journey as an ESL student was not easy because of the language barrier, but I never gave up my dream of one day attending a four-year university to pursue a biology degree and attend medical school.
