3 College Junior

Online Courses: I personally have had bad experience with online classes, it makes it really difficult to stay motivated and on task. Scheduling and due dates also become very vague so it's hard to stay dedicated.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It was very difficult and frustrating during the first time, they lost a couple of files which elongated the process more than necessary, but for the most part they advised us on what to do to avoid future complications.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A majority of the professors are really wonderful and care a lot about their students. Although the course work can sometimes be very difficult they try their best to extend themselves and aid us as much as possible. The classes themselves are also usually very interesting because the professors are very passionate and enthusiastic about it. And the class sizes are very small so it makes it easier to work with one another.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The quality of employers recruiting on campus is probably one of the things that can be improved on. They are usually not as student based as they can be and they're working on changing that.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I haven't really encountered any post graduate services, they do provide a WorkSource location on the campus that helps with acquiring jobs for both the students and public.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: In the past it has been somewhat of a hassle to find classes that didn't interfere with my jobs, i was limited to awkward schedules but there wasn't much that could have been done about it. So far i have not had any problems with transferring credits i have been told it's not as difficult to transfer credit if it comes as a whole degree.

5 College Junior

Student Body: I actually really love my school because it has a lot diverse students both domestic and international. And it's a really open atmosphere so you encounter different people with different ethnicity, religions and sexuality and everyone tends to be respectful and compassionate towards each other.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: They provide a adequate amount of resources to help with the classes which is useful when you are juggling work and school. They make it easier to stay on top of things, by providing advising and counseling services that go out of their way to help the students.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: They have a lot of options for classes and a majority of the professors are happy to help you outside of the class room to ensure that you understand the material and do good in their class. And they also provide math and accounting learning centers to help students that may require some extra tutoring, giving a more wrap around service.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: They have a lot of resources geared towards students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've loved it at North. Community college is great if your schedule isn't super flexible and if you don't want to pay as much as you would for a university. I needed time to figure out where I was going to go with my career, and North was instrumental in being able to have the time and space to figure that out, and now I'm well on my way. I wouldn't have been able to do it if I was going somewhere else.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: I love the student body here. There is a LOT of diversity. People of all ages (running start through to seniors), sexual orientations, religious beliefs, different backgrounds--we've got a lot of international students, too, and they've always been pretty friendly to me. Everyone I've met seems to be really open to differences. It's really great to see a lot of different people at the school and in the classes.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I don't receive financial aid right now, so I can't talk about that. But tuition is pretty cheap. Textbooks are expensive, but the Research and Advocacy Board on campus is trying to work to get prices to drop overall. Generally I've learned a lot from my classes and my instructors, so I'm pretty happy with what I've been paying.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: It really depends on the instructor you get. Most of them will use Canvas, which in itself is a little hit or miss. One of my instructors didn't really know how to use it, so that was frustrating. Most of them, though, have been good and they encourage students to contact them with any questions. My Economics class is all online, but we also meet in an online conference once a week, which is really helpful for me. Most online instructors have us discuss what we've learned in discussion boards.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: North is a community college, so the majority of what people earn here are basically stepping stones to another college. Our OCE&E building is pretty nice looking and it seems like there's a lot of options there for help with that. I haven't really utilized it, though, so I'm not sure as to the quality.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: North has recently started remodeling the school, which is great, because before it was basically a concrete slab. A lot of people say it looks like a prison, and it does. The new buildings are beautiful, though. It'll be awhile before it's all built, but it's starting to look really good. Wi-Fi is a little spotty, but I think next year or this year we're having some people come in and help us to get it a little bit better. There are a lot of events at school, but a lot of people don't go to them because most people just want to go home after classes. But if you want to do stuff, then there's a lot to do. We have an art gallery, speakers and musicians come in, a lot of clubs have events...there really is a lot to do here. You definitely get to know people when you go to events, which is really nice.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm working towards my Associates in Business and it's been great overall. The workload is definitely doable even if you're working an outside job. The instructors are pretty good, a little bit hit or miss so you'd want to check up on Rate My Professor. There are a lot of different classes you can take, and they've recently introduced a couple of Bachelor's degree programs, including one in International Business. North also has a new building, the OCE&E or the Opportunity Center for Employment and Education. I haven't been in there much, but it looks really good and they've got a lot of help available there. There's also on-campus jobs available, though there aren't a whole lot.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I don't know much about special study options or what we're most known for, but college transfer is something that I know a lot of people do. We have several DTA/MRP degrees available, so you can enter most colleges and universities as a junior after earning your associates. The class registration process is pretty straightforward; you pick what classes you want online and then pay within a week or so, a few weeks if you apply early. I've only ever had problems getting into the classes I need to take when I registered a week or two into registration, so as long as you pay attention to when registration opens, you should be fine. Returning students get to register before new students, usually by a day or two.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: North Seattle is great if you have a lot going on in your outside life. A lot of the students here work at the same time, myself included, so there are a LOT of evening and online classes you can take. If your schedule is constrained then obviously you don't have as many choices, so if you're getting close to finishing up whatever classes you have to take, then you really have to make sure the specific classes you need are offered in the quarters you want to take them, but overall it's been really easy to get my schedule to work.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: There's an unemployment office on campus, which is useful for finding a job with your new degree.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: They have a DSHS office on campus, and partner with Goodwill, BFET and other programs to help you get the funding you need. There's a great financial aid office that is always willing to answer questions and help you with scholarships.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There's many evening, online and hybrid classes, you can build your class schedule around your work and family schedule.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid is good but when it comes too them giving you guidance on what to do about what you need to send in they could be more helpful

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: North Seattle has just about every resource you need if they don't have it they will point you in the right direction so you can find it

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: They have plenty of computers and they have wireless access
