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) 

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.

SPOTLIGHT

Brent Jordan

Brent Jordan
Fire Academy Student

"I chose the fire technology program at Allan Hancock because of what it can provide for me. It's giving me a step above the other academies and throughout the state. Graduates of this academy have gone on to be the chiefs and the captains that are going to be hiring us, so when we go in for interviews by being able to say that we graduated at this academy they know what we've experienced. Allan Hancock College has provided me with the physical and mental capabilities through the classroom training we do each day and the physical training we do each morning. This academy pushes you to your boundaries and then you begin to work on those weaknesses; your weaknesses then become your strengths so you're actually growing as a person. Allan Hancock has made a difference in my life it's really taught me who I am and where I want to be."
