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.

UCSB Transfer Student
I moved to the United States in 2012. My English was very limited, so I decided to enroll in noncredit ESL courses in the summer of that same year. By fall of 2013 after hard work and dedication, I was ready to transition to credit ESL. The sooner I started credit ESL the better, but as a new California resident the tuition was more expensive since I had to pay out of state tuition, so I decided to wait for a year to attend credit class at AHC. AHC has great student support programs that I utilized; for example, AIM, EOPS, CAN/TRIO, and the Tutorial Center. I recommend everyone to take advantage of these services and to ask for help from your instructors when needed.
