Price is high but the education and teachers are good. It also fits in my work schedule.

most of the time a computer is available but open super busy. Can get help when needed and tutors are available with appointments. Printing on campus costs a dime but not unreasonable.

Friendships, Acceptance, Pride – Much of the student body are older adults who have busy lives raising families, working and attending school full time. The student body is diverse, many from other countries and new to the US. There seems to be no challenges except for language barriers but student help out as much as they can. You see acceptance and respect for fellow classmates and learning becomes more fascinating with so many different outlooks regarding learning. Many of the students become friends and work together class after class as we learn together.

Unique Job Opportunities – The program is geared towards certification so the education is geared towards that goal. The workload is intense but not too difficult. For me, the material is new but interesting and easy to stay focused. I am amazed at how much is learned each term. The curriculum is focused on the career of choice and geared for top success. Most of the faculty are impressive and knowledgeable and more than willing to share their successes and failures. Faculty have an open door policy within set office hours but always are willing to help or locate help if a tutor may be needed. Attendence is crucial and absentences are frowned upon such as work environment would require regular attendence. All students attend an internship which confirms learned cirriculum and is eagerly awaited by undergraduates.

Hands on Approach to Learning – Most of the professors are willing to spend out of class time to help with students who are falling behind as well as tutors available to help fill in the blanks. Many students help one another if a concept is difficult. Many group projects help students to learn leadership skills and working together as well as assignments on own. New class registrations is a breeze as the school has a great system that moves forward well. They seem well organized and students are a priority. The school personnel all have an open door policy and on the occasion a problem arises, they are quick to get to the root of a problem and solve it quickly. I am impressed by the professionalism at this school and am proud to be a student at Heald.

Network Slow – Sometimes the computers are slow other times, they are fast. We are allowed to print on campus as long as we don't waste paper and we recycle. If we start wasting paper, they may start charging us per page. We do have to pay $0.10 per sheet if we use the copy machine.

Could Use Some Help – We have a Library/Learning Resource Center. It has a limited number of books. It is 95% computers for the students to use. There are a few books you can check out. You can get tutoring help here and can leave things for your instructors if necessary. We also have Career Services. They help with your resume and job search as you near graduation.

Ride Share Program – We have a Ride Share Program. If you and another student that you will be giving the ride to, register with Student Services, after ten trips of both of you attending class, you get some help with gas. Then your passenger helps with gas so you both end up saving more. There were times I wasn't sure we were going to get to school and the school came through for us. I think it is a great program that more students should take advantage of.

Keep a Good Schedule and You Should Be Fine – The online classes I took were not difficult as long as I stayed on top of what needed to be done. The hardest part I found were the discussion boards because it seemed that all the students were saying basically the same things. Sometimes it was hard to keep the discussion going. Other than that I thought the online classes were all right. You have to know how to manage your time though.

First Time Student – The staff at Heald so far have worked really well with me to accomodate my class schedule with my work and personal schedule

Time Consuming – I was very concerned with taking an oline class, however it hasn't been that bad. I go into to school as I would for any other class and login to my class. I then work at my own pace to complete the assignments.

I Like My School – I do like my school, however I wish they would do more for the students. I have had a 4.0 since my first term and the only recognition I have recieved is a certificate that was handed to me in class. I think if they gave more incentive, there might be a better 4.0 rate.

Heald Is Perfect for Me – I love my school. I fell in love with it the first day I visited. It was the right size for me. I'm from a small town and school, and other colleges seemed daunting and overwhelming. Everyone is so nice and eager to help you succeed. I really like that they try to be as flexable as possible with your schedule. I have only been in school for a few weeks, but I have learned so much already. The worst thing is the drive, because I live a ways away, but it's worth the drive.

I had taken courses at a different school in a different state and was very surprised when a number of my credits transferred. I honestly didn't think any of them would transfer. I like the fact that if I don't want to accept the transfer credits, I don't have to. I can retake the course if I so choose. The only hassle is the daily drive every day.

Pursuing Medical Assisting – I am pursuing a degree in Health Care and I think the workload so far has been alright. This next quarter will prove a little more interesting because I have one more class this quarter. The medical classes are interesting and I can't wait to get into the clinical aspects.

So Far at Heald – I have only been at Heald College-Portland for one quarter, but so far I have enjoyed the classes and the instructors. I learned quite a bit during my first quarter and am starting on my second quarter in a couple of days. I would choose Heald again and I would recommend it to anyone that was interested in pursuing one of their programs.

Trash. Liars. Demons. By far the WORST choice I ever made

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I HATE HEALD – This school will bend you over as soon as you sign the papers to start classes. DO NOT trust a single word they say. I promise you will regret it....RUN AWAY, your better off working at a gas station your whole life
Sorry, there are no reviews.
