The Writing Center provides support for any credit students who need assistance with
reading and writing. Students enrolled in English 512-514 classes spend two hours
per week completing lab assignments that compliment classroom instruction as part
of their course credit. Additionally, ESL students complete one hour per week in the
lab working on lab assignments (which are assigned by the instructor). Students who
are not enrolled in English 512-514 or ESL Writing skills may register for the half-unit
Writing Center course, English 306, in order to fully utilize the lab. Faculty tutors
and lab staff are available to help students address individual reading and/or writing issues.
Students may use computers, study independently, or work in groups.

The first engineering class I took at Allan Hancock College was really challenging for me, but I thanked the counselor who showed me the way to the MESA program. There I was overwhelmed by all the resources offered and especially by all the students taking the same classes. Study groups with MESA students really made it easier for me to achieve. I am happy to say that I made it this far not only because of my determination to achieve a higher education, but also because of the wonderful people that I met at Hancock who encourage students to go the extra mile and accomplish their dreams.
