Providing Transcripts to Allan Hancock College
Official transcripts are required to satisfy course prerequisites, Student Education Plans, GE Certifications, Federal Financial Aid requirements, and degree and certificate evaluations at Allan Hancock College. Transcripts submitted prior to 2010 were not archived and will need to be resubmitted. Official copies of transcripts from colleges, universities and high schools attended should be submitted to the AHC Admissions and Records office.
If you are submitting an official paper copy of your college or university transcript it must be sealed. If they are sent electronically, they must be sent by the school attended or the third party vendor the school uses.
AHC does NOT accept electronic transcripts which are sent from the student.
Transcripts should be submitted ahead of registration, in time for academic advising and prerequisite clearance. Final official transcripts, showing all coursework and grades received, must be received before GE certifications and degree and certificate evaluations may be completed. Transcripts are evaluated based on the AACRAO guidelines for regionally-accredited postsecondary institutions.
Transcripts submitted to Allan Hancock College become the property of Allan Hancock College and will not be released to students, other colleges, or agencies. Plan to request a personal copy from your former college or university if you need one for your records.
