Academic Flexibility: Slight change in degree due to very minor policy.

Overall Experience: Became ineligible for a need base scholarship due to slight income increase.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I didn't like online courses.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: More online resources then inperson

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The convenience comes from the fact that I can still love at home and attend classes at the school and play sports here. I only hate the fact that the commute is brutal in the mornings and if class or practice cancelled I sat an hour in the car for nothing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my team the most. I have a great connection now with several girls and our coach has access to many colleges for when we decide to move on to continue playing at another school. There are lots of opportunities and I can still live at home, I just have a nasty commute in the mornings.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a large variety of courses available and even a couple 4-year programs as well. Many of the professors are really good and you will find the occasional professor who is hard to understand (English is their second language) or doesn't connect well with their students, but I believe more of the professors are on the positive spectrum of things.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I personally don't know exactly what type of employers are recruiting off of the campus or where the alumni have gone off to, but I do know that now that Bellevue has gone from a community college to college (Now offering 4-year degrees) it is one of the largest schools in Washington by population and it is very well known.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: It provides me with a lot of extra time and I get to do the work when I have the most time for it. It is harder at times to completely understand the instructions or grades since you can't directly ask the teacher unless you email them. It is definitely a different style, but I believe it works and you don't fully lose interaction with your classmates, because you are usually require to add to discussions.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: Bellevue focuses on its pride of the great diversity it has. There are many different cultures I've gotten to hear from, like a girl from Russia or a guy from South Korea. Many different religions and cultures, but they are all very well respected and embraced in this school.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Community college is a great way to get the general requirements done at a small cost and I feel that the campus and learning environment provided is well worth the money of CC tuition.

College Freshman

Career Services: I am in my freshman year here at Bellevue and I haven't yet had the opportunity to transfer credits or discuss with my advisor recently about my what I need to do yet and what is available to me.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I haven't had the opportunity to fully experience the aspects of my major yet, because I am still getting through the pre-exquisites and general required courses. So, so far I've only had a normal amount of work and difficulty, as you could expect 101/201 classes to be.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: So, far I've had teachers that are easy to talk to and learn from, but I have had the experience where I felt the hybrid class I should have taken fully online. This is because I felt like I wasn't accomplishing anything being there in class besides getting a participation grade and often our teacher would ramble about one subject that we don't even need to know about for our assignments and tests. The registration process can be tricky because I've had it where I've almost missed our on getting a class because of limited seats and I've been dropped out of classes because my payment didn't go through and I wasn't aware of the mistake.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Bellevue College has many resources available for it's students and community. I, personally, find myself in the athletic center most of the time because of my involvement in the school softball team. The people are all nice and very helpful and if you need help with a certain machine, or need ideas for exercises, and they have athletic trainers always ready to help you for free if you have any sort of injury or pain.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is a normal rate for a community college, but the books here are really expensive. Annoyingly the books aren't even used half the time, so I recommend not buying them until after the first day of class and try to find them online for cheaper. Unfortunately half the books are "Bellevue College edition" so they're pretty much impossible to find online.

Career Services: Because there are not post-grad services, there's nothing really to say.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The curriculum is great, but varies from one teacher to another, so you really have to know who to take. For instance, with organic chemistry one of the teachers teaches way more in depth, so you learn a lot more, do more in labs, but have a harder overall class. The other teacher (from what I've heard) doesn't require you to do nearly as much, so if you're looking for an easy ride, you can take that teacher, but I'd recommend taking the harder one so following classes won't seem quite so difficult.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The registration process is simple enough, but it seems that half the time I go to register the server is busy and I have to try to come back later. Also, tuition is due within seven days of registration which I didn't realize the first time and because the server was busy and it wouldn't let me pay immediately, my classes were dropped. I ended up on a waiting list later and was eventually able to pay tuition, but it was an annoyance I'd rather not go through again.

Campus Resources: I'll focus on the chemistry lab at Bellevue College. Not only do we have IRs, GC, evaps, and mass specs, but we actually get to use them! And we get to learn how to analyze the scans we get.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: they offer a lot of interships that you could apply for, in their work-study they have a lot of other oportunities that you could search to get a part time of full time job and interships with the degree you are looking for.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Mostly, things at Bellevue run pretty smoothly. The classes are fine, and the teachers can be a little subjective at times, but generally, the professors are awesome, and the student body is very diverse. If you work hard, the school takes an interest in you. The school has amazing academic programs, and most teachers really teach you on an above-and-beyond level. The school is really friendly. Many classes do make you work hard. Some classes revolve around projects in a group setting, which have potential to raise much conflict. You not only learn how to be a better leader, but you also learn how to resolve conflict and communicate more efficiently. There are many classes catered to helping a student achieve his or her desired career. You do well in those classes, and you will most likely do well in your future career.

Bellevue is unique in the fact that the student population is huge. In the state of Washington, it is second only to the University of Washington in student population. There are also varying age groups, from young teens to the elderly. There are many Running Start and international students that attend Bellevue, too. BC is a completely diverse school, which is what many love about it.
