Applying for a Certificate
Congratulations on your certificate!
Certificate requirements must be completed by the end of the semester in order to be awarded. Review the steps below to understand the process for certificate awarding.
Have you only attended Hancock?
Use Degree Works to verify you will complete a certificate(s) for the most current semester. If you are at 98% of your certificate(s) objective, you may be automatically awarded your certificate(s) once grades for the most current semester are finalized. After you have verified your degree completion through Degree Works, you may speak to a counselor for verification. We encourage you to speak to a counselor on a drop-in.
YOU HAVE TWO WAYS TO SPEAK TO A COUNSELOR.
- Phone: Call the Counseling Department at 805-922-6966 ext.3293. Please have your H# ready, or
- In-person: Stop by the Counseling Department in Bldg A.
Have you attended other colleges/universities?
Use Degree Works to verify you will complete a certificate(s) for the most current semester. If you are at 98% of your certificate(s) objective, you are required to schedule a counseling appointment to determine certificate(s) completion. If you haven't done so, submit all of your official transcripts to our Office of Admissions and Records prior to scheduling your counseling appointment.
