No Problems – Hancock has never had any network problems for as long as I have been there - since 2008. Most teachers for online classes are very understanding about connection losses for student personal computers and allow any tests to be re-taken.

Opposite of Impacted – The majority of engineer majors are mechanical and civil. Biomedical and Chemical have a decent following. Materials Engineering isn't a popular major at Allan Hancock College. They still have all the transferable classes I need, but there isn't as much emphasis in the classes towards materials so much as mechanical.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Allan Hancock College has great prices for the level of education provided here. Some professors actually grade you as if you were attending a University. I feel like I'll be prepared when I transfer. The financial aid process can either be swift or seem never ending. If you're sure to complete and submit everything early or on time, then it will be a breeze. If you procrastinate, then you'll have to wait for submission to process and then there will be another wait for the money to be distributed to your account. Allan Hancock is great about reimbursing any out-of-pocket expenses you may incur.

Convenient class options – The office is quick to send you paperwork and I havent had many problems getting a person on the phone when I need help. I'm able to take several of my classes online and that helps cut back on my gas expenses and gives me time to work. My Biology class is on the Lompoc campus and my teacher so far is proving to be great. My only complaint is about the Bulldog card... Higher One is not a customer friendly establishment and I wish the college would find a different way to send us our refunds.

The facilities here are great! The bathrooms are always clean and if not the janitor will be right there to clean it. The classrooms are always clean as well and a great size for all types of courses. Eveything outside the buildings is amazing as well. The grass is always cut and the flowers and plants are always taken care of.

Campus Computers – There are many computers available to the students. The internet is not slow unless everyone is trying to access the same site. The hours of operation are great! Printing is easy, convenient, and also cheap unless you print something wrong. You don't really need a personal computer because there are many computers on campus that have all of the programs needed for any and all classes.

Pay on Time – If you don't pay your tuition on time for your classes they will drop you from the class. Having this makes it difficult for some students to get enough money in that short period of time. But it does make sure you pay on time and there are different payment options as well. Financial aid is great! They help out so many different students who need the help.

The teachers on campus are great! Some aren't the best at teaching you everything you need to know, but if you read the book you are fine. Sometimes you get a harder teacher and it makes the class time consuming and difficult but you do learn many different things.

First Course – I haven't taken an online course before so the one I am enrolled in for this semester will be my first.

I haven't had the opportunity to use the services but I have also heard nothing good about our services on campus.

Always There to Help – At an academic event that I atteneded, the student body did not only give me the answer I was looking for they also showed me how to find the information for further reference. They are always willing to help me there.

Such an Easy Transition – Some personal things were happening in my life at the time of going back to college, but the teachers were so understanding and supportive. They made me want to be at school.

Awesome People – They explained everything so easily and it what they told me to do wasn't time consuming or hard to do.

I have been out of school for awhile, and the teachers seem to work with me pretty well.

Under Construction Indefinitely – The facilities we have are pretty good. The library and computer center are really nice. The student center needs an upgrade, and is getting one, but now the campus is under construction, which can be a hassle. It is a comfortable and safe campus.

A Little Less Personal – I liked the idea of online courses in that I would be able to do my work any time of day. However, the downside is that there is no in-class discussion where you can ask many questions, or where other people ask questions that you never would have thought of. Also, if you do have a question, you have to wait for the email back from your professor. In some ways, the internet makes things a lot less instantaneous.

I have done most of my work online but from the times I have been on campus it is very clean looking and all the buildings are nice inside. The online resources are good and easy to use.

I have not used to Career Center Services yet because I have not been in need of it.

Very Helpful – The teachers know what they are doing and they really take their positions seriously.

Be on Your a Game – It takes alot to manage multiple online courses, so you must be on your A game at all times. Time management is key to success and knowing yourself and your limitations. It is great to expand your knowledge and your boundaries by pushing your self to new limits.

Be Serious High School Students – Right now I am realizing that this chance to pursue education for a better future is definitely worth the time I put in;however, I wished I would have realized this when I started college: which was in the 10th grade of high school for me. I was ahead of the pack by a long shot;although, as my high school slash college endeavors continued, I slacked because I figured I was so far ahead. I began to get poor grades in classes and such; and my planning for 4 year college transfer didn't exist. If I would have realized how important my "Grade Point Average" was I would have tried harder. I am doing well now and am almost done with community college.Shorty I am going to apply for 4 year college, and to my amazement I realized that I am living the success story that we always hear about;however, the story could have been even more grand, telling of more doors that would have been open for me: if I would have been serious as I came to college throughout my high school years. These are my words to you high school students, "Be Serious" with your education; the time ,and the effort will be worth your future.

Always There for You – The campus resources are always ready and available.

Have It the Way You Want It. Here at Hancock you are allowed to make your own schedule that is tailored to fit you.

The Students – The students here at Allan Hancock College, are nice and friendly.
My school is very diverse in people's ethnic backgrounds, economic standing, political views, religions and sexual orintation. Even with all of these differences, we all are able to get along and make the best of our time and education.

Resources Sometimes Have Difficulty – Resources on campus are fairly good. One time, the computer network and printers were down; no one could fix the problem. I was in the middle of writing a research paper in the computer lab and it was very frustrating that I couldnt print out my work or use the internet to even finish my project. My computer and printer at home was also down, so I was relying on school resources. This, obviously, was not reliable. They didn't give out passes and told student to go home, so we were all basically kicked out. This has happened twice. Next time I might use another recource other than the school if my own computer and printer go down.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
