Getting Started

Having trouble getting started? Too many steps and you’re not sure what to do? Highline College now has Entry Advisors to help you! You can find them in Building 6 (Upper Lobby), or contact them at or 206-592-3620.


  • Do you need help figuring out online and virtual learning? Help with technology? Check out remote resources.
  • Need support with emergency cash, housing resources, food access, college financial navigation? Check out the Benefits Hub.

What about tuition?

If you are interested in the Early Achiever’s Grant, Jeremy Wilde is the point of contact. Complete the funding orientation through Workforce Education Services (WES). These are online (top right of the page). WES has other types of funding as well and I recommend them as your first stop.

Who should you see for academic advising?

“Advisors” are people that you meet with to answer your questions and help you make a plan to achieve your goal.

Depending on you and your interests, I may not be the best person for you to meet with.

*Are you just getting started in your program? All students who have under 30 credits should see a Pathways Advisor. Once you’ve completed 30 credits, you can request to be assigned to a faculty advisor. To request one, just complete this form. You’ll be matched to someone based on your interest in Education.

*Are you interested in working at a public school? Kindergarten and up? I do not advise for the Elementary Education program.

For information about the AAS in Paraeducation (which can lead to the BAS in Elementary Ed) contact Patricia McDonald.

If you already have your AA/S and want the BAS in Elementary Education contact John Pizarro.

*Are you interested in a certificate or degree in Early Childhood Education? Do you have over 30 credits? If you answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions then I can help!
