Overall, it is a really good school. My professors have all been amazing. I have medical conditions which sometimes interferes with my work and they are accommodating which a lot of other schools haven't been. I would definitely recommend this school to others.

I really enjoyed Coastline Community College. The professors were there to make sure you learn. There was no on-campus housing. Classes were online, so we rarely met any other students in person. However, that didn’t stop us from communicating. We made friendships along the way.

Coastline Community College offers a variety of options for students to choose from. They're quick, efficient, and try to offer just as much for distance learners as they do for on-campus students. The classrooms provide a healthy and safe environment, where everyone has equal opportunities to learn and participate, the teachers pay attention to detail, and the classes the provide help fulfill university requirements at an affordable rate.

Alexa - 12/14/2018

I transferred my units over to Coastline community college in 2017 when I moved to Orange County from Los Angeles. The staff made the process very simple and was very transparent with the information they provided while they walked me through the registration process. The academic counseling department is very knowledgeable and really cares about the students at Coastline. The teachers have been very helpful and do a great job at instructing. My experience at Coastline has been very enjoyable and I would recommend this college to students who are pursuing their two year degree or are looking to transfer to a university because Coastline is assisting me with both items quite well.
