You must attend the first class meeting and/or orientation of each new class whether
it's a lecture or a laboratory. If you cannot be there, notify your instructor in
writing, via email or by phone no later than 24 hours prior to the start of class.
Without prior notification, you may be dropped from the class and wait list students
could be admitted in your place. For instructor email addresses and telephone extensions,
select the Directories on the home page.
Regular attendance at all class sessions is a primary obligation of the student. Regular
participation in distance learning and TBA components is part of attendance, with
minimum time required each day or week depending on the course section. Both the successful
completion of college work and the financial support of the college are dependent
on regular attendance. Students are required to remain for the entire period. Each
college instructor will explain the absence policy for his or her class at the beginning
of the semester; however, failure to attend regularly may result in a reduction of
the student's final grade, or in the student being dropped from the class altogether.
In the event of a prolonged illness, instructors should be notified either by the
student or by Health Services. Veterans should contact the Financial Aid/Veterans
Affairs office on the Santa Maria campus.

Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering
I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship. I then attended California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, to pursue an aerospace engineering degree. After just one year at Cal Poly, I was accepted into one of the most prestigious internship programs that NASA offers, the Aeronautics Academy.
