4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There are a abundant amount of classes offered at Harper. There should be no problem with finding classes that fit your schedule but I believe the professor selection could be better.

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity at Harper College and the attendance is getting larger but the participation in clubs and organizations at Harper is minimum. Most students go to school for class then go straight home there are few problems with student differences.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think this is a great school to attend adn better for kids to go here first before going to a 4 year college. It will save students a lot of money, for the same quality education.

College Freshman

Career Services: I have not used any of these services from the school.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I mostly took my gen eds, but I was able to take electives in the fields of business and marketing. The workload was never too much for me.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Most of the professor at Harper are great and seem to like their jobs. The registration process is easy to use, and there are many opportunities available. Students can study abroad and High School students can take college level course during their senior year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I have not spent much time in the different centers Harper has. I like the library and the people there are very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The computer system is pretty good at Harper. The labs tend to fill up, but there are so many available it is not hard to find a spare computer to use. They are open later too, so you can use it for night classes too! The printing system is easy and the internet and software is pretty up to date and fast.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: I have taken 3 online courses and they have been mostly great. One of the teachers was not the best, in my opinion, but he knew what he was taking about, just not how to explain it well. The others were great! It's so much easier to take classes online, especially for classes like English or History because you've been learning this stuff your whole life. The other two professors were very helpful and though they were a little tougher on deadlines and how much material you needed to know, they were not asking too much of anyone. Blackboard makes it easy to communicate with the teachers and they respond quickly.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school is easy to afford and they tell you all the costs up front. Definitely saves you money before transffering to a 4 year university where the cost triples at least.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: It is really easy to add and drop classes if you need to. There are night classes and early morning classes that make it easy to get the credits and classes you need. I had not trouble with transferring credits because of the agreement Harper has with the school I chose. One difficult part is getting in to see a counselor, there are almost never any appointment times available, and the people that answer the phones there are not very nice.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity at Harper. A lot of people from different races and religious backgrounds. There are unfortunately, many unhappy people there that do not seem to care about anyone but themselves, but other than those, the student body is very diverse with colorful personalities.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The school is very clean and modern. The lake and preserve are very pretty. Overall layout of the buildings and classrooms is pretty decent. This is a great school, I only wish it were a four year university.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: You go to the school to learn and then drive home. Not many people go to Harper to make new friends.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Just like the first week of the year, the first week of second semester Harper had tables spread out throughout the campus with students or faculty there to help answer questions. Along with that, they offered all different types of activities for the students to get involved in including mini concerts, raffles, games, etc.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Overall, I expect Harper's flexibility of the teachers to be average. While some professors are very open to students setting up appointments to speak to them or contact them through email, others only have a short period time that they're available through the week which can be stressful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I've only had to use the computers at the school once to print a paper and I had no problem doing so. They have rows of available computers for students to use at any time of the day. I've never heard any complaints about the reliability of the network at Harper mainly because the staff is always making sure the computers are running properly.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: My first week of classes I obviously had many questions about where certain places are located or how to get to a specific building. Rarely, if I couldn't find an advisor walking around the campus the students themselves were very helpful in the process!

College Freshman

Online Courses: I've never taken an online course for Harper college.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Harper college definitely surprised me. It made me realize I made the right decision by starting my college experience off here first. It's very affordable and they're understanding if you have any reason to need to set up a plan to pay for the costs of your tuition.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office is great and straight forward. They are very helpful and will try there hardest to help out. The tuition is great too

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I never had a problem with transferring credits to Harper, but I do know that they accept almost all, if not all classes. The flexibility with classes is nice overall. You do want to make sure if you have a busy schedule because of work or other duties, that you register for classes within the week that registration begins. It will save you from the hassle which I think a lot of people have and then blame the school for.
