5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: BC is set on getting you to university, no matter what.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Most of my credits transferred to Western Washington University, because Bellevue College is a well-known and respected community college/four-year school. I was able to get all the classes I wanted at Bellevue as well. The tuition cost was relatively low, so I have saved a tremendous amount of money by starting out at Bellevue. Although, there aren't a variety of class times for some classes, so I had to take an online class for statistics. I usually try to avoid online classes, but I still was able to learn the material and do well in the class.

Academic Flexibility: love having classes start later in the day.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: My credits from AP classes in high school transferred very easily and showed up just fine in online transcripts and degree audits. Registering for classes online is easy, and you can plan ahead using the class listings posted on the website in advance. I never had a problem finding classes that I needed that also suited my schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have had no problem or troubles with classes or professors, even when I've had to miss a week of school to go on a trip my professors accommodated my absence!

Classes at Bellevue College are very flexible. Students can attend day, night, online, hybrid, and late-start classes. Many people who lead busy lives and do not have the time to come to school five days a week utilize the flexible options of online, night, and hybrid classes.

Hybrid classes are classes that are part online, part in an actual classroom. Classes usually meet two to four days a week for hybrid classes. Late-start classes are just classes that do not start on the first day of school, instead beginning later in the month. For some people, online classes can be difficult. However, online classes are really easy to figure out at Bellevue College. Emailing the instructor if there is a problem is a common courtesy. For people that are wary of online classes, they usually start hybrid classes to get familiar with the online process. Then, if they like it, they continue on to online classes.
