We provide advising on Resident Tuition Rate, AAS Selective Admissions and College Admission (Getting Started).  Please be aware that Highline’s lot has limited space; factor in time for finding parking.  If you arrive to your appointment more than 10 minutes late, we will work with you to reschedule for a different day.

Getting Started Advising

We return all emails and all phone messages.

Please do not leave multiple messages or contact us multiple ways. When you do, it slows down, not speeds up, our response rate.  A returned call counts whether we reach you, leave a message, or tried but cannot leave a message (for example, because your voice box is full, your phone has been disconnected or you did not provide your area code).
