As a community college, we concentrate on helping you learn
rather than on making a name for ourselves. We want every
student to succeed, whether you’re transferring to Harvard
to starting your career when you finish your degree at Highland. With
an average class size of only 23 students, you can expect
to receive some personalized attention.
Your Credits Transfer
Take advantage of the professional advisors in Highland’s
student resources department. They will help you plan your
schedule to match the requirements of the college or university
you will attend next. By working with an advisor, you should
never have to worry about the transfer process.
Aid and Scholarships
Although we’re the bargain of higher education, we know your
college degree won’t be cheap. Starting at Highland will cut
your college costs by at least $5,000, but taking advantage of financial
aid and scholarships will reduce your expenses even more. Last year
we gave away over $3 million dollars in scholarships, grants, and
We offer a range of free services to help students achieve their
goals. Placement testing, advising, financial aid counseling, and
free tutoring are just the beginning. Our students (full-time students only, beginning fall 2009) also enjoy a
free YMCA membership and discount ticket prices to College events.
