Staff Report 

Allan Hancock College will continue to offer the majority of its spring classes in a remote format, ensuring the health and safety of students, faculty and employees. Remote format allows students to continue their educational studies through Zoom and online learning.

The decision to continue to offer spring classes remotely was made in consultation with multiple college stakeholders and follows the college’s pandemic plan, which was supported by Hancock’s Board of Trustees in June. While most classes will remain remote, some lab and career technical education (CTE) classes will be held in-person in a safe, socially-distanced manner, adhering to state and county protocols.

“The safety of our students, employees and community continues to be at the forefront as we prepare for spring,” said Hancock Superintendent/President Kevin G. Walthers, Ph.D. “The decision to continue a remote teaching modality reflects a phased and measured approach to reopening that will keep Hancock healthy while continuing to provide a quality education to our students.”

As remote classes have continued through the  fall of 2020, Hancock expanded support for students, offering in-person services, laptop lending, virtual counseling, online tutoring, emergency funding, and a wide array of additional programs and services to assist with the transition to remote learning and mitigate impacts of the pandemic. Hancock’s services include counseling, financial aid assistance, help with registration and much more.

“Our students have shown amazing resilience during this difficult time, and we want them to know that Hancock is here to help them in any way we can,” said Walthers. “We want them to take full advantage of the robust student services available to them.”

Priority registration starts Nov. 2 and open registration begins on Nov. 7. Winter classes begin Dec. 14 and spring classes start on Jan. 19. Students may contact the Registration Hotline at 1-805-922-6966 ext. 3248 for questions or assistance with registering for classes.
