3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The staff has not been flexible when I really needed them to be. Allow it has been hard...that does not mean there is not a possibility they could be flexible in the future so I do not want to say "bad."

2 College Junior

Career Services: They do not seem to offer the help I need in looking for a job in my career path.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I do not use the campus very often, but when I do there seems to pretty decent accommodations!

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The Financial Aid process can be difficult. Every single day I log into my account I find a new form that needs to be submitted! They will not even begin to process my financial aid until all forms are submitted.

College Freshman

Student Body: I am an online student. There is no interaction with other students.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I had had no issues with the flexibility of my classes.

College Freshman

Facilities: I am an online student from out of state. I have never seen nor visited the actual campus.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The standard tuition is a little high, but due to the fact that I am in the Military Program for spouses, my tuition fees dropped about 30%. Financial Aid is made available for those who qualify. The FAFSA, CAL Grant, Pell Grant, etc., are made easily accessible through the schools website. Also, the financial aid office can be easily reached and the staff are more than helpful.

College Freshman

Online Courses: I have not started this semester. I have no information of what the classes or professor/student relationship. Non peer-to-peer interaction has been made yet.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Like I mentioned before, the programs offered at this school are very intriguing. They have programs ranging anywhere from Accounting to Business to Real Estate or even Computer Networking. There is a wide variety of courses offered for your career objectives. The registration process is simple and quick.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My career objective was very simply laid out for me. I am in a Military Program so my course load is a little different from the standard. I really like that about this school. It's flexible with my busy life as a Military spouse and mom of 3.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: The career center is currently being relocated. I have not been able to check it out yet.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has made returning to college very easy! Their online programs, as well as their Military programs, sparked my interest immediately!

3 College Junior

Student Body: I don't have much interaction outside of mandated discussion forums (it's an online format). I don't know the student body well enough to answer that question with any definite level of validity. It appears to be average to me, but then I don't have much to compare it with, given the fact that it's my first college and we don't have interaction outside of teacher-induced discussion forums.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Coastline doesn't require me to put my world on hold to travel to the campus when I need to be at work at certain times and other places. Scheduling is flexible when coursework can be completed anywhere there's internet access and a quiet place to read.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses offer the affordability (not having to pay for commuting expenses) that in-person classes will never amount to. The drawback is that they can be isolating. However, there are discussion forums with both student and teacher communication to discuss a course. It's flexible, which is essential for balancing work and other obligations outside of school.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: There is a multitude of knowledge available, but it's extremely expensive for those who don't qualify for Federal/State Aid and jobs are hard to get in this economy. Tuition is expensive, tutoring is available for those who take more classes, but it's difficult to get those classes without financial aid to begin with. The classes are very interesting, but feel somewhat rushed for time in that the student learning outcomes seem to take a backseat to the importance of a "letter" (grade) instead of long-term absorption of the information itself. I don't qualify for financial aid, so it's discouraging to attend financial aid workshops. However, I'm certain it is helpful to those who do use it who otherwise might not be able to attend school at all. For those who can qualify, one must fill out a FAFSA. Those who do not must work harder to find the cheapest possible (while still efficient) solution to buying things like books and must have greater patience to deal with shortcomings in "pinching pennies". I would advise gathering all possible coupons (like those found in newspapers) for grocery shopping, spend a few hours each day for about two weeks looking on every imaginable site one can buy textbooks on (it isn't always practical to spend so much at the college bookstore-it can be just as expensive as the classes themselves). Buy all books one can used and paperback instead of the expensive new versions. Renting a book can be a bad idea if one will need it for future classes (e.g. I wouldn't be rid of a beginner's math book when I know I'll need to reference it for future higher-level math courses). Get books early and begin studying long before class starts so one has a better chance of retaining the information and avoiding exam-crams/burning the midnight oil.

2 College Junior

Career Services: There's a career center, but since I'm a distance learning student I haven't been able to travel to the on-site location and utilize it. I haven't found much to compensate online on the campus website so far.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: Since I go online i dont really knows what goes on on campus.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have gotten way more financial aid then I anticipated for for sure. I was concerned with the cost but when I went to pay it was only $16!!!! I am constantly receiving money from grants and things! I am not really sure why they keep sending me money, but they are.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I have had a really difficult time with the course load, but i had to expect that taking 18 units. Its all really about time management and dedication. The teachers don't really remind you when things are due and you need to stay on top of all your stuff. Other teachers are more useful than others but you will get that anywhere!

5 College Student

Academic Flexibility: AMAZING flexibility. They have classes every hour of the day until 10pm and even a few friday/saturday classes. And of course Coastline is known as the OC's king of online community college.

4 College Student

Campus Resources: Many Mac computers available to use on campus though alot of non-academic websites are blocked (facebook, twitter). Printing is .25 a page too which is not too bad since most of the classes I've experienced don't require many papers. I only had 4 papers to write for my year long english comp class for example. Pretty good for a junior college

4 College Student

Campus Resources: There are many helpful "bridge" transfer programs like the STAR program where students can be transfer ready in 3.5 (fulltime) semesters. Makes it possible to aspire to transfer to a University such as Cal state Fullerton.

4 College Student

Student Body: Very diverse student body. For example. in my Chemistry class I heard students speaking Chinese and Arabic. Also, the majority of the student body are non-traditional students who work/have families. Despite all that, most of the students are friendly and helpful. Many of the TA's and professors are of diverse ethnicities so they are very helpful to the non-caucasion students.
