Orientation Required for New Hancock Students

for new summer and fall students

JUNE 4, 2013 -- All students attending Allan Hancock College for the first time this summer or fall are required to attend a New Student Orientation.  These events are scheduled at both the Santa Maria campus and Lompoc Valley Center.  

The orientations will provide necessary information about valuable college services, including counseling, financial aid, health services, job opportunities and more.  Attendees will also learn helpful strategies for time management and study skills.

The orientation schedule is below.  Sign up online at www.hancockcollege.edu; click Future Students, then New Student Orientations.

Lompoc Valley Center (bldg. 3, room 114)

“Our goal is to ensure that all students begin college with the information they need to succeed,” said Yvonne Teniente-Cuello, chair of the college’s counseling department.  “We pack a lot of information into these sessions.  Our research tells us that those who participate in an orientation like this have much higher retention rates – meaning they stay the course and achieve their goals.”

For more information, contact the Santa Maria campus counseling office at 922-6966 ext. 3293 or email counseling@hancockcollege.edu.  At the Lompoc Valley Center, call 735-3366 ext. 5200.
