3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Occasionally a class is scheduled to be offered a certain semester and at the 11th hour they discontinue the class offering.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: The online class system is nothing fancy but it always seems to work, with very few technical glitches.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The post-grad services are very good. They continually show students other educational opportunities.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small and instructors are knowledgeable.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Employment outlook appears good, and the instructors are educated on upcoming job openings.

4 College Junior

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is now the third college I have attended and it has offered the best learning experience.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It's has its perks and its flaws, like most universities.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Highlands College of Montana Tech is an incredible school, with a highly superb faculty. The staff have always made me and my fellow peers feel welcome. They're willing to help you through any struggles you may face. The campuses are at easy locations, which is a must to the new comers. You truly get to know yourself and learn who you want to become in your future.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose Montana Tech and the Highlands College if I could do it all over. I think that perhaps I would have chosen to come here first instead of the University of Montana. The professors are more in-tune with student needs, are more available to assist, and overall seem to genuinely care about how well their students do.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The resources on campus are readily available for student use and are of generally great quality. Occasionally it can be hard to find a free computer in the library, but other than that, things have been great.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Printing on campus is very easy to do. Most of the computer labs are easy to use and readily accessible, though sometimes the library can be a bit crowded. Wireless is touchy; it is hard to find a reliable connection and strong signal in some places on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: The classes are what I expected; nothing more, nothing less. There's a sizable workload but it is easy to get double degrees because so many programs share so many classes.

Career Services: Job Search Engine Is Useless – There is a Job Service called JobWire that is strongly tied with the school. It's absolutely worthless. It has maybe three listings for the entire state.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Hybrid Classes Can Have Issues – I don't have any classes that are purely online, but I do have hybrid classes which are in person and online. The biggest problem I find with this is some teachers will post assignments online that they don't mention in person. This irks me personally because all my classes are on a computer as it is, so I'd like to spend time off the computer once I know my homework is done. The flip side is sometimes a teacher will forget to post something or the system doesn't work at times, both of which I have experienced. Most annoying though is the use of access cards, which make it harder to buy and sell books.

2 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Flexibility is going down at the school. There are no longer exceptions permitted on homework from some teachers for things like hospital stays or emergencies. Many credits don't transfer, and attendance is now graded making working with work schedules harder since many classes are only offered at one time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: There's a computer lab and the library, but there's not much extra stuff like athletic/gym facilities. There is a food/bookstore, but the food is overpriced for what it is and with a supermarket down the block there's not much point in buying from them. There is not a theatre but there is an auditorium-like room for presentations. There are no dorms, but there's several areas to sit and do homework without leaving campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Library Computers Are Slow – Recently the school changed their computers, so I'm not sure how bad it is now, but typically it would take at least 10 min for the computers to boot up. Plus this year the internet was messed up for the first couple weeks of classes.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Price of Education – I chose this school because I believed it would be my cheapest option. However, I still found apparently I'm too poor for them. The Health Insurance is still pretty worthless but you have to have something. Lovely, isn't it? I'm aware that other schools would charge me more in some areas but when a student loan covers tuition and leaves me to pay out pocket for books I dig for on Ebay rather than paying the ridiculous amount at the school, I'm not that impressed. Yet now I can't even do that since they are insistent on using "bundle" books now with access codes to the homework, which feels rather obnoxious since teachers are already being paid to be teachers. Come up with your own homework and stop wasting what little money I have. At least use the questions already in the book.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's a great place to go to school. The staff is very helpful. I haven't started classes as of yet, but the enrollment process was made effortless by the kind and caring folks in enrollment services.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have given the Montana Tech- College of Technology an A because it is a great school to attend. They have so many social events that they prepare to get us student more involved in the school and how to be in demand. The instructors are great, they really see the students eye to eye.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The associates of science is what I am now in and it is a great way to get all of the general credits you need, so later I can transfer them over to the Bachelor of Education.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Giving the Montana Tech- College of Technology this grade is because the people there are very easy going, including the instructors. The class schedule, for me at least, enables me to still be able to do the things I need to do outside of school. The curriculum has a vast variety of different majors for just about any one to choose what they would like to do.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: On Your Own Time – I like that we can do it on our own time. We can see things due at a later date and either chose to be ahead of it or wait until last minute, which I like because I am determining my level of stress.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: Uofm '12 – My school has a little of everyone which is nice because I don't feel uncomfortable when I am alone. Everyone is helpful and nice its almost like we all share a little teamwork throughout the campus.
