Workshops

 

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

ORIENTATION/ ACADEMIC ADVISING WORKSHOP (AAW)- SUMMER/ FALL 2017 

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.

ESL Spotlight

Maria Ayala
ESL Student

"Deciding to go back to school to learn English and obtain my GED has been one of the most important decisions I ever made. My credit ESL instructors guided and helped me to adjust to my new life as a student. They understood me as a student and as a person. Being a full-time worker, a full-time student, and a mother of three was not easy, but my instructors encouraged me to keep going. They spent time with me revising my writing and giving me feedback to improve my English, even after class time. They made me feel welcome and proud of being a student later in life. Now, I am a Hancock graduate with three AAs and am currently attending Cal Poly. I'm here because my instructors encouraged me to never give up. My ESL instructors believed in me even before I started believing in myself. It has been a long and not so easy road but I now know that I can reach all my goals."
