Went for culinary school in mid 2000's. Half way through they replaced our instructors with incompetent (Robert Sutzle) ACF chefs. They closed the program before a lot of us finished. couldn't finish at any of the other colleges. BIG WASTE OF TIME!!! Dean is crooked. Worst community college in Seattle. On top of all that, the instructor that was supposed to teach us gave me poor grades, even though I was one of two or three people to do all assignments and almost perfect attendance. I think its because I was a better and more knowledgeable chef, and I think he became jealous how the other students listened to me more than him. Its embarrassing telling people i went here for school, which is why I don't tell many I did.
The Application Development program coordinator does a great job coordinating.
Also some great instructors!
Financial aid processes quick and without issues.
This college has a 4 year degree and works worth worker retraining programs to get you going. It’s great for returning and non traditional students with a daycare on campus for parents.

I have attempted to use the Tutoring Center, and they are not attentive, or even mentally available. It is very challenging to find classrooms and navigate the campus to find any resources or buildings, even the Admin building, and the Library entrance. When registering for a class, I was trying to clear up my residency status, and no one knew if I had the correct documentation, they just assumed I didn't. I have asked multiple departments HOW to get onto the student WIFI, and everyone just shrugs their shoulders at me. So bad. I have been to a few colleges to take courses, and this has been the worst experience of all.
its a good school to meet various people and students who are from different countries.
Teachers are nice and very supportive. class size is very small so it is easy to talk to teacher in person.
it is my first year at North Seattle and I felt very welcomed. teachers and staff were very helpful guiding me to my classes. if any questions were to occur they were ready to help when needed!
As an older LGBTQ+ student, the student body and faculty create a culture on campus that felt supportive and welcoming. North Seattle is an amazing learning environment. I felt like I belonged. It's also a great place to work.
Attending North Seattle College had been a great experience so far. Most of the teachers I've had have been helpful and one in particular has been very inspirational. The location is great; there are a lot of food places a few block up. The campus is huge and looks dreary, especially when it rains. Parts of the campus are newer so those areas look nice. There is also plenty of parking and accessible bus stops. I look forward to finishing up my Associate's here at this school.
Love the diversity at this community college. Professors I interacted with were all very knowledgeable and professional. Loved the coursework as well.
North is great about focusing on student success. Advisors and instructors are all more than willing to answer questions and give any advice students need. The community is warm and inviting and there are endless resources available to help students along their path toward whatever goal they are chasing.
Teachers at North Seattle are very helpful in assisting students in their education, they appreciate hard work. North Seattle also provides many facilities to accommodate their students like, a gym, computers all over campus, a tutoring center, a library, a bookstore, etc. These little things help students in their academic performance because they are convenient.
North Seattle College is a great School. Registering for classes is easy and user friendly. The teachers are approachable and helpful. The cafeteria is nice and getting healthier every quarter and the parking as well as the public transportation is amazing!
good school staff are amazing, all the instructors are very helpful and spend a lot of time helping student who needs extra help. so happy i attended North Seattle college .
North is a fantastic option for someone in my field of study (Early Childhood Education) as it is where the Early Achievers scholarship stems from. By already working with children, my tuition and books are completely covered. By far that was my hardest hurdle in getting back into school, and North saved me from student loans. They also offer a bachelor degree in my study, and that was the ultimate decision of my choice to stay there. Because of this, I can stay within the same circulation of instructors and will be able to be in a cohort of students I've known throughout my studies.
I really enjoyed this college. I spent several years here taking math and science classes. The classes are small sizes, which allow for better means do learning and connecting with other students and the teacher. The faculty truly care about your education and help the best they can you make you be successful.
I really enjoyed attending North Seattle College, it was close to my house but in a very convenient location. The campus was set up as more of an outside campus, if the spring and summer, it was nice to step right out of the classroom into the outside sun and air. The teachers and students I met during my 2 years there were very friendly and attentive. I never had an issue getting my questions answered from any source.
I have mostly taken online programs at NSC, but so far most of them have been quite good (the exception being the economics professor; he's horrible). It seems like the overall quality of the courses is quite high and the costs are reasonable.

The vibe at North Seattle college is great. The teachers and the advisors are there to help you and they want you to succeed. The classes are fascinating and are useful to me outside of school. I would recommend going here!
I've had a great experience at North! The faculty is great and always there to help when needed. The counselors are available on drop in basis and the financial aid department has been SO helpful. I've been pretty happy here and will be sad when I transfer to University.
I love the small class sizes. It's nice when professors can pick students out of the classroom by name and say hi to you when you pass them in the hallways. I can say that I've had great professors here at North, and they truly do care about every student as long as you are willing to try hard in their classes. A lot of them have had a lot of workplace experience, which is really helpful in helping you to understand how the material applies to the real world. A lot of my professors give examples in their classes regarding other disciplines, too, which helps to learn the material.
