Distance Learning

Canvas is the official course management system supported by Allan Hancock College. To enroll in an online course, students must use the internet and their Allan Hancock College email account. Online courses may be offered completely online or partially onsite.

These courses may include an onsite orientation and/or a "To Be Announced (TBA)" component that requires a minimum number of hours of work each day or week not including study or homework time. For complete information and requirements, visit www.hancockcollege.edu. Use the class search link to find your course section and then click on the blue CRN for details.

Students must complete their own work and not work with or through other parties, except in the case of students with disabilities. Students are welcome to use the Open Access Computer Lab (OACL) at either the Lompoc or Santa Maria campuses for online course access, provided they have a current student AHC ID card.

Allan Hancock College complies with the TEACH Act, a federal copyright law. Some materials used by college faculty in distance learning courses are subject to copyright restrictions. Students may not download and retain or redistribute these materials. For additional information, please contact your online instructors.

Personal security is as important for online students as it is for students who take classes on campus. Allan Hancock College does not restrict enrollment, and by law must admit all qualified students. Students should not share personal information, including phone numbers or addresses, with other online students they do not know. Additional advice about maintaining personal security in an online class will be provided by the instructor of the class.
