4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Most teachers are flexible with class times/test/quizzes rescheduling when things come up with students. They can even change around the curriculum to further explain topics the class doesn't quite understand. Degree audit really helps in students being their own adviser and seeing what classes they need to take.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Highline is not only the most diverse college but it also has a great view of the Puget Sound. It also includes a child day care center for parents on campus. A fitness gym free for students. A big library with tools/equipment available for biology classes (skeletons, muscles, models). I would choose to go to Highline rather than any other college because it's close to where I live, it's in a good place near stores/gas station/restaurants, the campus is nice and clean, easy to find buildings, diversity, and lots of class options.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience with classes and teachers has been excellent. I'm a hard worker and aim for a 4.0 in all classes. I ask help when need of the instructor or ask my buddies. I mostly try not to form friendships if not needed; I'm more of a ride solo type of person. Even though, I easily make friends with classmates because we have similar thinking and are both hard workers. Highline has lots of classes offered. The class sizes are good: between 20-30; not too big. Class styles are mostly teacher up front/walking around room and rows of students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Highline is a great college and I greatly value the degree I've earned from it (AA in pre-nursing and soon to be AAS-RN). I recommend HC to all my friends because it has a great variety of classes and programs. Not only that but it's a great campus with lots of help when needed. There are plenty of nice people there to help you reach your goals. There are smokers here and there in smoking zones (which I wish they would ban) and I feel like they should try to decrease the smoking areas and start to require students to be non-smokers.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I took a couple online classes and found them very different and at times difficult. This is because YOU'RE in charge of everything; assigning yourself to read, do homework, write discussion posts, do quizzes/tests. It's like you're the teacher and the student. I found it more challenging at times but it was nice to be able to be in charge of your education. You didn't have to wake up at 6am everyday to go to class but instead could sleep in a bit and actually feel rested when reading and doing homework. The discussions were interesting because that was the way of communication between the actual professor and students amongst one another. What helped with some classes was that there was a set schedule students were to follow and when assignments were due compared to others where you just had to finish everything by the end of the quarter and thus most students procrastinated.

Overall, the online classes were great but I felt like I learn more when I actually go to class and physically takes notes when someone else is teaching. That way you have time to ask questions and clarify things. When you're doing online classes you're kind of screwed if you don't understand anything. Some teachers will help explain things while others will tell you to look it up.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: Highline has the most diverse student body than any other college in WA. There are people from all over the world attending HC. This includes not only ethnicity but also religion and even economical status. People seem to be accepting of one another because we're all different. Of course, there are those very strange people on campus as well, dressed like cats.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is straight-forward; you know what to expect for how many credits you're taking. The tuition is well worth the education received when compared to other colleges/universities' pricing. The financial aid process is stressful at first but when you apply again for the next year you get used to it. Step-by-step clear instructions are posted online and are very helpful. The staff/advisors also know what they're doing and really help with questions. Dropboxes are labeled clearly and are right next to the financial aid office so it's easy to find.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Since the 4 years I've spent at Highline I've noticed it reaching out to alumni quite a bit. They have anniversaries of different departments, invite them to commencements, and even plan special events to involve alumni in community service opportunities. I would say Highline is great with post-grad services. They keep in contact with alumni and invite them to events whenever possible. They also provide them with job opportunities and networking.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Highline is one of the top colleges with the nursing program. It's tough but it'll all be worth it at the end. The teachers are knowledgeable, supportive, and truly care for their students to succeed. The curriculum is excellent and they teach you things you'll actually be doing in the field. They also give you a taste for all the different types of nursing careers available. In terms of their facilities though, I would say they're a bit outdated. Classrooms need to be remodeled in addition to nursing equipment such as beds and manikins.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Highline is known for nursing, business, accounting, paralegal, and teaching/education programs. HC offers a variety of levels of classes ranging from easy ESL/ABE to university 300 level classes. All the teachers also vary; there may be more chill teachers and some strict as well. The class registration process is simple to follow and learn about. The website is easy to follow.

Campus Resources: The fitness place is small but it has a variety of equipment, machines, weights, and benches to workout. The gym is huge where 3 games of volleyball can be played on one side and a full game of basketball on the other. Highline also has a bistro and a lunch cafeteria place with excellent food choices. The bookstore is also great with lots of sales, games, and prizes going on every so often. The library has a lot of computers and space to study and do homework. The student union also has places to chill with friends and enjoy the view of the Puget Sound and sunrise/sunset. The whole campus is great and clean.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Highline tries it best to keep tuition low so that everyone can afford college which makes me glad for everyone and including myself. I think education should be available for everyone. As financial office they do help, but later on causes trouble for me to get financial aid so I gave up and pay for myself and my parents though its really hard for them and on myself. Tip for financial aid do everything early if you can and double or even triple check to see it work.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: Highline does show alumni days, but usually I am to busy to attend or not sure where to go to see the next one, but I am interested.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Some professors are great and some professors you just don't understand. Registering for classes are really easy when you know what degree you are after and see if the classes are available at the time.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Visual communication really did thaught me alot on how to design from poster to business cards and such.The workload is reasonable and how they teach really makes it stuck in my head. The internship really does depends on you, but you have to go and find it yourself though.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Everything is available and free since you pay tuition so don't let it go to waste. Explore the clubs they offer, gyms are free to use, the computer labs, and get help at the tutoring center though sometimes you need to set up for a appointment especially with writing tutoring.
