You cannot rate what is the best without comparing it to other schools. With my own experience going to this college only, i've visited other school campuses and heard about them. Of course their tuitions are higher but have great programs for certain types of studies like UW and their computer science engineer program, being the top 10 in the country. But the tuition is very high compared to BC, making Bellevue College very worth your dollar, that can help you financially by a ton! BC is well rounded and can be a great stepping stone to your next move onto something more beautiful in education and potential.

The tuition amount is straightforward. There are minor fees for laboratory classes, but nothing shocking. I have learned so much here, and I have paid way less than the price of a university. I am transferring to Western Washington University next quarter, and I feel like I am prepared academically. I have gotten some scholarships through Bellevue. My freshman year, I was on an athletic scholarship, and this year I got an academic scholarship. A tip for future or current students is to check out the scholarships Bellevue offers. There are quite a few and they are due in June so be on the lookout!

My rating is about the student center, library, and general aesthetics. The Science building gets an A+! And much of the campus is pretty, but some of it could be remodeled or painted. The Student Center is very nice, I love the various groups hanging out there, from frisbee players, to artists, to card gamers, very comfortable place to be. The cafeteria has great food, and the bistro has awesome coffee. I always feel safe there, although I've never had any interaction or situation that would have called for security. I love my Science professors, and am enjoying the majority of my other required classes!
