Bulldog Bound

Bulldog Bound is the first step to the Hancock Promise

Bulldog Bound focuses on creating a college-going culture among fifth- through eighth- grade students and their families. The program introduces them to Allan Hancock College, the campus, and the programs and services available through early outreach events. 

Bulldog Bound is the first phase of the Hancock Promise aimed at placing higher education within everyone’s reach. The Promise removes financial barriers and creates pathways to increase college readiness, access, affordability, and success for all students in the Allan Hancock Joint Community College District. 

KidsStudents and their families will be invited to attend various events on Hancock’s locations in Santa Maria, Lompoc, Vandenberg Space Force Base, and Santa Ynez.
