2 College Student

Academic Flexibility: There is a decent selection of courses and programs available, but all of them are quite shallow. The Anthropology program has a total of three classes. It becomes very difficult to register for the classes you need to transfer as many students will register for courses and drop halfway through. Most students are here for more than two years.

Campus Resources: They're currently revamping the school so it'll be a lot better but it was just old overall. It's gonna be great once it's done.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They are very helpful but you need to know what questions to ask. They aren't always proactive in showing you ways to receive help. You need to go in with plenty of questions.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The main problem I've had is taking science classes. With my family schedule I have been unable to work around the very long schedule times they have. They are very early in the day or run into the late afternoon. Other than that scheduling has been very easy and convenient.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is reasonable at AHC. I'm not eligible for much financial aid, but the financial office is super helpful and takes some of the stress out of the process. The quality of instructors that I've had at AHC has definitely proven to be worth the money I pay. I definitely feel like my education at this community college is preparing me for my future major courses at a university

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have had great experience with teachers at this school, however it's been difficult to get the best times for the classes I need. Even though this is my last semester, I was still unable to register for a GE class, so I had to take it online instead. Besides making some minor adjustments to my schedule, I'd consider my experience to be pretty convenient.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The computer network at Allan Hancock College is excellent because I cannot remember a single moment where an Instructor had to call for assistance with a network issue. In my personal experience, every time I had to use a computer in the library for research or to type up an essay there was never an issue. I am very pleased with the printing system on campus since it can be done in numerous places such as the library and writing lab. There is ten cent cost for every page that is printed, but that is no reason for complaining when printing is accessible and very rapid.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Allan Hancock College provides an excellent service in the Financial Aid office with friendly staff and located next to the EOPS office. As a student receiving both FAFSA and EOPS assistance, it was very convenient for me to visit them in the same time frame when it was necessary. Anytime I had trouble finding the amount of financial aid I would receive in the myhancock portal, the Financial Aid office provided me with clear and precise instructions on how to do so. EOPS was also very helpful when it came to making appointments with a counselor because they sent me emails reminding me to visit them regarding this requirement. All of their reminders were very useful to me since I am a full-time student and would usually forget about meeting with a counselor twice a semester.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Overall it is a great community college that is excellent in all areas,but does contain a few flaws. Some of the staff members in the University Transfer Center can be really helpful when they seem to be in a good mood or may seem to be disturbed and annoyed when asked questions. Another problem I encountered is regarding an inexperienced counselor whom gave me information that was lacking details and therefore affected the pace at which I could finally obtain my Associates Degree.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid at Allan Hancock was an easy process.The staff was very helpful and friendly. There were no hidden fees and the application was easy to fill out. The staff helped me with the many questions i had which was great. The best tip i can give a new student is to apply for financial aid even if you do not think you qualify. Also apply to as many scholarships you can. Going back to school is a challenge but well worth the effort.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: i had a hard time with some of my quizzes on line due to loosing internet connection. still, i passed my classes. fast track classes are challenging but are doable. classes on line are convenient but if you have any questions you have to e-mail the instructor. some times you have to wait a day or two to get a response. some of the work loads were heavy but worth the work. registration was easily completed with no stress. i did get to know my instructor and some of my co-students in my classes by the discussion boards and e-mails sent. this semester i have 3 on line classes and i'm looking forward to the challenge.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: It took me a year but I finally found a counselor that was extremely helpful with planning my path after transferring to a four year university

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Although I like the school I have not had a good experience with the teachers that teach my major.

4 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: The student body is very active. They are always hosting events and giving the students freebies like anti-stress kits during finals week!

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I started as a Crop Science major and switched to Forestry and Recreation and Parks so I have not yet experienced any of my new major classes. My crop science classes (chemistry) were very good though.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Teachers very interested in teaching and students interested in learning, for the most part.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The facilities on campus are amazing. The library is very helpful if you are trying to get some late studying in and is very quiet.The writing center is very convenient to students trying type up papers and doing research.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: As with every college, you have very good professors and some not so good. Some just speed through their lecture to fit it in one class period. For some classes the workload is very heavy and for others its light. It all depends on what class it is and when you are taking it.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The teachers for my major are very passionate and insightful. They are eager to teach and love what they do.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body consists of students who are full time students and work as well and also have families to take care of. The student body is diverse with young as well as older people going to school too and everyone is friendly to each other.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors are good and class registration process is easy just put the CRN numbers for the classes you want to get just some people might get problems from the system if it doesn't work. But overall well, you are offered career programs and help from counselors.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Although there are periodical lapses in their computer network service, the instructors are more than willing to give alternates (such as multiple emails to turn in online work). A home computer is, of course, a help. I think that a number of the instructors may feel that classroom study is "a dying art," and correspondingly, seem extra helpful when questioned.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Perhaps adults returning to school are expected to understand all salient points (pertaining to financial aid) from the outset. Once you are "not a problem" (implied, not explicitly stated), they are quite friendly!

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I firmly believe that if you go to class everyday, and participate in classroom discussions, you will be able to get your teacher's attention and he/she will know that you are serious about your studies. I don't know how many times I've been in classes that kids show up 3-5 times a semester and expect to get a passing, or decent grade. If you don't put in the effort, the instructor's wont help you out.
