Email is the standard method of communication used by the Financial Aid Office (FAO)
at Allan Hancock College. We will contact you only through your Hancock email address,
with only one exception: the first email regarding the results of your FAFSA will
be sent to the email address you submitted on the FAFSA.
All FAO communication will be directed to students, not their parents, as it is the
student's application for financial aid. It is your responsibility to check both
your email and, even more importantly, your financial aid status on the myHancock
portal. Additional student requirements, resolution of data conflicts, and status
of financial aid awards are posted on the myHancock portal on a regular basis.
Confidentiality of Information
We are aware that some parents assist their sons/daughters to complete forms and navigate
the process of applying for financial aid. According to the Family Educational Rights
and Privacy Act (FERPA) and to ensure your privacy, your account will not be discussed with anyone else (this includes custodial parents, guardians or other family members or friends),
unless you submit an authorization form allowing us to speak with them.

Fire Academy Student
"I chose the fire technology program at Allan Hancock because of what it can provide for me. It's giving me a step above the other academies and throughout the state. Graduates of this academy have gone on to be the chiefs and the captains that are going to be hiring us, so when we go in for interviews by being able to say that we graduated at this academy they know what we've experienced. Allan Hancock College has provided me with the physical and mental capabilities through the classroom training we do each day and the physical training we do each morning. This academy pushes you to your boundaries and then you begin to work on those weaknesses; your weaknesses then become your strengths so you're actually growing as a person. Allan Hancock has made a difference in my life it's really taught me who I am and where I want to be."
