What We Do
The purpose of our program is to increase retention rates at Allan Hancock College, as well as increase transfer rates to a four-year, higher learning institution. We aim to help students achieve and
maintain academic success. Our students are expected to keep a satisfactory overall
GPA, attend scheduled events, meet federally mandated objectives, and to complete
their Hancock education in less than four years. See our “Program Benefits” section
for more information about our services.
