Allan Hancock College Reviews
Allan Hancock College helped me through my associate's degree and different certifications. Their class times were flexible and many variations of days/times, also online. This helped me be able to work fulltime still. My daughter went to their children's center which was amazing then and gotten even better over the years. The counselors have all the resources you need. Just ensure you do your research as well to make sure it is the right time for you. And not going to keep you there longer than needed. The professors care!
I am a first time college student at Allan Hancock College. Though I am unable to experience the life of a college student on campus I still get the overall feel of the college. I often receive messages from the school helping me stay in the loop of the things going on in and out of the school, which I love dearly! The staff members at the college really helped me every step of the way when entering the college.
I have been taking classes at Allan Hancock since I was a Sophomore in high school, through their CollegeNow! program. The classes are flexible and the professors I have had so far have been very supportive of my goals of attending the Brigham Young University in Provo for my Juris Doctorate. The campus is usually very clean, and is situated in a safe area of the city. There are numerous supplemental programs to ensure students succeed. Overall, Hancock is an excellent, low-cost college.
