Financial Assistance Programs

(Allan Hancock College Board Policy 5130)

Allan Hancock College offers many financial aid options to assist students with their educational costs. The money that is available comes from several sources: the federal government, state government, Allan Hancock College, and the community. Financial assistance comes in the form of grants, loans, scholarships, and/or work study assignments. Grants and scholarships are free student aid that does not need to be paid back. Loans are federal funds that must be repaid by the student when a student is enrolled in less than six units, withdraws from college or graduates. Work study funds are funds earned by the student through part-time work for the college. 

To be considered for student financial aid, the student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act application. A general description of each program follows. The Financial Aid office will provide additional information to anyone interested. The Financial Aid office is located in Student Services, building A, Room 101 on the Santa Maria campus; and building 1, Student Services Center at the Lompoc Valley Center. Information is also available at www.hancockcollege.edu/financialaid.
