Northshore is a very diverse college when it comes to the student body. It consists mostly of working class people with part or full time jobs and families. All attending are juggling two or more priorities along with school trying to get a grip on things, trying to take control of their life and are succeeding in doing so by taking the initiative to get to class and strive every day instead of socializing.

The academics offered by Northshore Community College are as follows: the basic study courses including but not limited to math, science, literature/composition/writing, creative thinking classes that like to challenge the students mind such as philosophy, psychology, sociology, etc. In my experience at Northshore the staff is excellent when it comes to keeping the students mind active, and wanting to learn more, they are hands on so learning isn't as much as a challenge, they try and work with your preferred learning style to the best of your and their ability. The workload is approximately 3-4 hours of homework out of the classroom for every hour, or hour and a half spent in class. The majority of the workload is expected to be completed out of the classroom and on time. The registration process is very easy as well! My only real complaint with my experience at northshore is the bookstore. The staff isn't friendly and the lines stretch out into the halls, making it a hassle, really, to receive the mandatory course materials and textbooks.

The "good" classes fill up quickly, which can be a nuisance. I haven't had trouble yet with transferring credits but there have been some mix ups with documents mailed to the school. Teachers are generally very helpful to willing students.

I have not taken any classes that are internet only. A few classes that I've taken included online course content (books, study guides, exams, etc.) and I've found that it all works quite well. It would be more difficult for students without access to computers at home but not at all impossible.

The student body is quite diverse, depending on the classes or programs. The basic courses tend to be made up of mostly recent high school graduates with a few older students mixed in. I think that the students enrolled in degree programs are a bit more serious in their studies.

I haven't had any problems getting a spot in a computer lab and the networks have never been down when I've needed them. The print set up seems to work well.
College Junior 2013-01-17T02:58:00Z
I don't know much about student life and facilities as I am only part time right now. The school does have a shuttle between campuses.
College Junior 2013-01-17T02:55:30Z
The computer labs, science labs, cafeteria, library, etc are slightly above average to quite good.

I think it was pretty easy to register for an online course and it was also pretty easy getting to know the teacher because they make a sincere effort to reach out to their students. I haven't done much work for this class yet.

This school is really what you make of it. There are some professors who aren't top notch but they will always work with you. This college is an excellent platform to go on to bigger and better things. The down fall at North Shore is the lack of concern shown by a majority of the students. Other than the students it is a good place to be at first.

North Shore Community College has really changed my life for the better. Here I was able to pick the classes I love. I am never let down by the amazing information that is shared with me in so many different types of classes. There is such a diverse range of classes and schedules. I do love everything this school has to offer. I am able to study the two aspects of my life that I am most passionate about, Alternative Health and Wellness and Environmental Studies. It is because of NSCC that I am able to pursue my dream of helping to balance, not only myself, but also the Earth and all of which dwells on it.

I have no direct knowledge about the post-grad services. It is not one I have ever looked into. I do know one of my advisers graduated from NSCC and now works for them shortly after. Which makes it clear to me that there is a lot of support from the college. Also, I have been asked to teach Yoga there. Which is a blessing. There is a lot of job and career opportunities and guidance the school has to offer.

There are many locations to find reliable computers. Printing is easy and always double sided in the computer labs. Although, the computers in the hallways I wish had double-sided printing as well. Network works well, and if there is ever a 'problem' it is fixed quickly as the school works together to get it back up and running. Wireless access is great!

the school offers many resources including tutoring, a bookstore on campus or the ability to order books online. Financial aid office is open evenings for convenience.

I have not been in school for 12 years. I took few classes at a community college. I decided to work on changing my career and the choice of online classes worked out great for me. I can take classes at my convenience as I work full time.
College Senior 2012-12-27T03:47:40Z
I chose this school was because of how flexible the class schedules are. I work full time and i can take my classes online around my personal schedule.
College Sophomore 2012-12-12T15:06:09Z
I mean, it's as good as a community college is gonna get. I have yet to have a teacher I didn't really like, and they have a ton of classes to choose from. I work from 3:30-10 everyday, and I was still able to fit a full schedule in for before that!

North shore community college has a great campus and faculty but the lack in the knowledge of their student advisors.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I am well known about the school fees, and are the best ever exist around. I get some financial aid, but other forms of help to pay my tuition would help me to take more classes.
Recent Alumnus 2012-12-06T18:20:16Z
I am in a paralegal major, and my classes are almost what I expected them . I love the online classes, and the topics that professor put us to discuss. So far, I like the classes I am taking.
Recent Alumnus 2012-12-06T18:12:59Z
Most of the professors are helpful, and they understand you more than you think. My experience, so far, is great. I will recommend NSCC for anyone that cannot effort an associate degree in regular college.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I'd say it was pretty easy if you kept everything organized. There were some unexpected fees, like the Health Insurance. Since I'm a full time student its a required fee and I had to waive it by proving I had Health Insurance. The people in the Financial aid office were very helpful, but since I waited until the very last minute the wait in line to get help was very long. In all, it wasn't very hard at all.
Recent Alumnus 2012-11-28T14:45:30Z
It is a community college so you'd expect to be limited student involvement. I have found that there is a lot of that seen around campus. I ,myself, am involved in three clubs (Environmental, Student Government and Health and Wellness Club). Once you get involved it's easy to get more and more involved. NSCC has such amazing opportunities and really loves to encourage students to do their best at anything they are doing. I have talked to many students who have enrolled here at NSCC and they all love it here. I have never heard a bad review. Diversity is completely accepted school-wide whether on the Danvers or Lynn campus. All are respected equally and are free to their own beliefs. NSCC is an amazing school, I hope to someday see the option of four-year degrees.
College Junior 2012-11-07T23:16:32Z
I'm not really sure how that goes, but I've seen students graduate from North Shore Community College and they are able to get a job because some are involved with the intership programs, or they apply to the jobs they hope to get while graduating time comes around.
College Junior 2012-11-07T23:11:56Z
I'm taking non-credit classes that aren't very challenging. The writing classes that I am taking is Writing 2 and Reading 2, I do mostly all of my assignments except for the journal part for the Reading class. Next semster I am trying to take classes that are credits and able for me to move on to studying my major. The classes I'm taking is preparing me for the next classes that I am looking forward to taking.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
