This is a comprehensive list that was designed with all admitted students in mind. As you work through it, you will find some steps involve action on your part where some you can check off as done or not necessary. If you are able to check off each as done or not necessary, you will be helping set yourself up for success! If you have questions along the way, click the hyperlinks for more information. You’ll also see a contact list on the bottom.
Placement is necessary for the majority of students, but not everyone. Placement is needed if you are taking a class with a placement prerequisite. These include math, science, English, reading, business technology (BSTEC), healthcare, psychology and communication courses. Placement can be determined using high school transcripts, GED scores, placement tests you have taken elsewhere or by Highline’s assessment tests.

From your contact information to your program of study, it is very important to keep the information on your record current.
Highline’s Academic Standards encourage students to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0. When a student’s cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0, probationary status requirements heighten student’s awareness of the importance of and impact of the grades that they earn. Other programs, including most funders, also have minimum GPA requirements. The purpose of these requirements is to ensure your success; familiarize yourself with who requires what. Highline’s Academic Standards also recognize those students who maintain exceptional GPAs with inclusion on the Vice President’s and President’s Lists each quarter. Many scholarships also reward or require scholarship as evidenced by attaining or maintaining a certain GPA.
Getting good advice along the way will help you complete your credential efficiently and prepare you for your next steps. If you just beginning and need assistance with educational planning, contact Academic Advising. If you are certain about your program of study, your faculty advisor will provide you with educational planning and critical insight into the profession.
