I received my Associates from Highland. Most of the instructors are nice. Some are better than others. I felt the affordability was outstanding! I was able to work full time while making payments to Highland, so I didn't have to rack up student loans yet. They host many student activities on campus. There are a ton of ways to get involved. They also have many employees who go out of their way to help their students. Plus, all of my credits transferred to my 4-year college!

I first enrolled at Highland Community College in 2015. My major was Cosmetology. It’s a certificate program. The school has very good employment rates after you graduate. This fall I will be enrolled in Criminal Justice, a two year degree program. I can’t wait, I’m excited! I really like Highland, I just wish it was a four year college where I can obtain a masters or bachelors degree.
Highland is the perfect school for students who aren’t quite ready to transition straight to a 4-year university right out of high school. This school makes the transition to college much less intimidating. A majority of the instructors truly want their students to succeed and they show that by providing extra help if needed. In addition, Highland offers many diverse clubs and organizations to get involved outside of academics.
