Academic Flexibility: sometimes the counselor, tells you that you have to take a certain amount of classes and at the end you find out either you took the wrong ones or you paid for more classes than what you needed.

Online Courses: personally, i dont like doing online classes. i find it a little more complicated!

Career Services: i think its great, they have a specific office dedicated to student needs.

Overall Experience: the classes offered are good, but sometimes they offer classes only once a year which is not so great.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I have to say it started our rocky almost to the point of quitting but I asked for help and BC has gone above and beyond my expectations.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I have mentioned before that online books used for the classes (for example Vista Higher Learning, Connect) to assign homework are very expensive.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: I am currently pursuing a transfer degree so I am not looking into BC's post-grad services at your school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy the personal interaction with the Professors. The one on one time that they are willing to give has assisted me tremendously.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am an active participant at the BCAV I enjoy, socializing and networking here with my fellow veterans, The BCAV staff here has been extremely helpful in finding myself avenues to afford to come here full time.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Professors have given me plenty of resources to succeed in their classes. Online portals to Bellevue college are easy to navigate. Only negative I will have to mention is that I am getting killed in book fees. The books come with an online passcode which is mandatory with the class and has to be new. Both quarters that I have taken I have encountered a class with this requirement and just the book alone ranged from $250-$285 and that is only for one class.

Overall Experience: Coming out of 20yrs of military service and coming here was not an easy transition. Thanks to the veteran staff, and the professors willingness to work with an old veteran made it a lot easier than it could have been. Being away from an academic atmosphere for so long and coming here was not easy for me. I contemplated quitting half way through my first quarter. I explained that to one of the counselor's here at Bellevue, the counselor explained to me that what I was feeling was normal for a person in my shoes and made me feel comfortable if things didn't work out that they would assist me in my next career path decision.

Overall Experience: Courses can be hard but as long as someone takes the time to study they will be fine. Professors are always willing to help. Many courses offered. Class sizes are reasonable.

Overall Experience: I started attending this school my senior year of high school as a running start student. Staff and students were welcoming and willing to help at all times.

3 College Senior

Career Services: There isn't any alumni network to be seen. Many students who leave Bellevue College leave there for good. The quality of the career center is amazing though. You can easily walk in and schedule an appointment with an advisor, who has a load of job/internship opportunities for you to apply to.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Bellevue College offers many courses, from IT to Nursing to Business. There's many professors to choose from and the times they teach are throughout the day, so you can choose the professors that best fit your time. The major blow is that professor quality is low. This school is more about quantity and less about quality.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have been to several career fairs hosted in the school cafeteria throughout my time at this school, and it's alright. You don't see big name companies like Microsoft, Google, Boeing, etc. It's mostly small tech businesses looking to hire interns. This school has an online job/internship tool, CONNECT, that helps you submit your resume and cover letter to companies in that site.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: The teachers here at Bellevue College are mediocre at best. There's new teachers every quarter, all their ratings on ratemyprofessors.com are terrible. Almost all the classes I have taken there had some problem with it, primarily the teacher. Some doesn't update our grades, some always cancel class, some offer no help whatsoever outside of class, etc. The advisors there is actually really nice and helpful though.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: If I could go back in time, I would not pick this school. The quality of teachers is alright. The location was terrible, being situated along I-90 and I-405, the worst interstates at most time of the day. This school is a 100% commuter school so no students stick around and you can't really make friends. The good thing is that it's a huge campus for an (ex) community college. There's always somewhere quiet you can sit down and study at. The cafeteria is a bustling place that doesn't offer bad food. All in all this school is average.

Online Courses: Able to complete assignments when able to do so, better allows you to control your schedule

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Classes are scheduled when they are and you must work around it. But that is to be expected with a nursing program - this is your commitment.

5 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I love canvas. It makes everything easy to use and simple

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Some professors are new to teaching so they are not as organized.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
