Email is the standard method of communication used by the Financial Aid Office (FAO)
at Allan Hancock College. We will contact you only through your Hancock email address,
with only one exception: the first email regarding the results of your FAFSA will
be sent to the email address you submitted on the FAFSA. All FAO communication will
be directed to students, not their parents, as it is the student's application for
financial aid. It is your responsibility to check both your email and, even more
importantly, your financial aid status on the myHancock portal. Additional student
requirements, resolution of data conflicts, and status of financial aid awards are
posted on the myHancock portal on a regular basis.
Confidentiality of Information
We are aware that some parents assist their sons/daughters to complete forms and navigate
the process of applying for financial aid. According to the Family Educational Rights
and Privacy Act (FERPA) and to ensure your privacy, your account will not be discussed with anyone else (this includes custodial parents, guardians or other family members or friends),
unless you submit an authorization form allowing us to speak with them.

Science Instructor, PVHS
One of the obstacles that I had to overcome was breaking the language barrier. Another obstacle I faced was financial hardship. As I completed my classes at AHC, I had to work in many part-time jobs such as a math/science tutor for the college tutoring center, night shift clerk for a local grocery store and vegetable cooling. Also, the MESA program and the STEM Center, not only supported me academically through resources such as access to books and computers, but also through working with students with interest in mathematics, science and engineering.
