What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a decent place to get an education. The professors really make the classes worthwhile because a lot of them are enthusiastic about their class and students. All the professors have their office hours available and are easy to talk to, which makes the classes better because students can easily communicate. Most teachers use Canvas which is super helpful. The college is easy to get to by bus and offers discounts in the bookstore for students who have an ORCA card. Overall, this is a good school and a good stepping stone for me as I plan to go to a four-year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended online classes. The admissions process was relatively easy and the staff was always available to answer questions. Taking online classes didn't really give me a feel for the campus or student environment but it was still positive experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very diverse college and everyone I have met both staffs, and students are nice. Everyone is focused on their education and I typically took late classes due to working full time when in college. I have learned that many others who attended Highline College both worked and studied fulltime. They offer all accredited prerequisite courses at this college and most of not all are eligible for transfer. Many students who attend plan to transfer after completing their prerequisite courses. They have classes anywhere from early days to late evenings. I believe the latest class hour I ever took was a 7:30pm twice a week. The staff was very helpful and provided security escort (upon request) back to your vehicle. Many of us who took late evening classes would walk out in groups for safety purposes. The area is known to have break-ins and some violence near the college. I never personally had any car break-ins or witnessed anything violent, but had friends who did. During the day there is a cafeteria, library access, and gym room and study areas throughout the campus. For parking you have to get a pass (fee) or else you will be ticketed. Overall I had a great experience at Highline College and made some great friends. It is a great community college to help lower the cost of a four year universities tuition. Students are able to earn AA degrees and obtain all of their prerequisites for transfer to a four year university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cheap place to start college. Class sizes are relatively small, around 60 students in the largest class I attended. This means that it is likely for you to get attention from the professor as long as you tried. Pizza from the second floor cafe in building 8 test really good, but other food are simply okay.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a standard and genuinely above average community college. It was recently promoted to a college rather than a community college, but nothing changed. It's basic and accessible and allows students to transfer to higher education centers pretty readily. Classes are reasonably varied and not too much of a commitment, and professors are generally affording and well-mannered.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Highline College is a good community college that cares about their students access to a quality and affordable education. I have known a few people who have had lots of complaints about difficulties with online registration; however, personally, I have not had to deal with this. Teachers can be very hit or miss so make sure to look at rate my professor when signing up for classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was an enjoyable school to go to and I would recommend Highline for locals. Some of the classes were interesting and entertaining while others lacked the passion that makes learning fun. School events were plentiful and while I didn't make it to a lot of them I did enjoy the ones that I did make it to. Overall Highline was a good introduction to college life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Highline is a very flexible college. They offer many opportunities to do coursework online, but the involvement of professors in classes is highly variable. Expectations are usually laid out, but some professors just aren't responsive. As well, there are some issues with not knowing who your classmates will be which also can change how much discussion can happen in class.
