Why did I lose my priority registration status?

  • Continuing students may lose their priority registration status if they are placed on academic or progress probation for two consecutive terms or they have completed more than 100 units at Allan Hancock College. The 100 unit limit does not include units earned in English as Second Language (ESL) or basic skills courses (500- level coursework).

Students who meet established criteria may be eligible to appeal for priority registration.

"I like Allan Hancock College because it's affordable and close to my home. The classes and instructors are great- they are very open if you have any questions and they are very supportive. It was a great opportunity for me to discover that I wanted to make child development my career."
