University of La Verne
The University of La Verne Central Coast Campus and Allan Hancock College have formed
a partnership to offer Bachelor degree programs in the Northern Santa Barbara County.
This partnership is making it easy for you to continue your education in Psychology
without moving from the area. Maximize your time and money; take all your lower-division
course work at Allan Hancock College then continue your degree with University of
La Verne at the Vandenberg AFB campus. Instruction is offered on site.
Through its Regional Campuses, the University of La Verne provides educational opportunities
for mature adults with varied educational backgrounds. Applicants will be considered
for admission based on the following criteria:
- Number of college-level semester hours completed
- Cumulative GPA
- Work Experience
The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree program is designed for mature working professionals
over the age of 23 with or without college experience. These programs utilize and
value the experience students have obtained from the workplace. Because of this expectation,
applicants under the age of 23 are considered for admission only if they possess substantial
work experience and a cumulative GPA of 2.2 for any transferable college or university
course work. Students who have not already completed the equivalent of Eng 110, College
Writing A (Eng 101 at Allan Hancock College), must complete this course within the
first two terms of enrollment at ULV.
Contact the Allan Hancock College University Transfer Center at 922 6966 ext 3363
to make an appointment with a transfer counselor to evaluate your coursework.
Students are expected to be computer literate and have Internet access. In addition,
word processing, spreadsheet, and basic math skills are required for the successful
completion of some courses in the curriculum

"I came from Mexico at age17, which meant I not only had to learn English at a High School level, but had to prepare for college-level courses. During my first semesters at AHC I enrolled in ESL, and made extensive use of their writing lab, which I believe was critical in my transition to transfer level classes. Engineering is a difficult major on its own, but learning all those concepts and terminology while just getting out of ESL classes was a challenge. AHC professors, counselors and programs were key to my success."
