Bellevue University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (38)
I'm not sure what to make of the negative comments here since my experience was excellent. At the time I enrolled in Bellevue I had recently retired from law enforcement due to an on the job injury after 17 years of service. At age 40, I only had an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice and was academically unprepared to enter the corporate world. I was very nervous about re-entering the college environment because it had been so long for me since I attended a college class. I remember when I received some of the initial instruction. One of those instructions mentioned that papers had to be in MLA format. My response was, "What's MLA?" I was very very nervous and doubted that I had what it took to complete the program. It wasn't easy, but determination and discipline got me to graduation. Fast forward to today and I'm working in a major corporation in charge of the Investigations team and doing very well. I definitely believe that earning my Bachelors was one of the keys to my success. Now, 7 years after earning my Bachelors from Bellevue, I'm preparing to work on my Masters degree. I have the same doubts and nerves I had when I started my undergraduate program, but I know I can do it and I'm confident it will better me in the end.
Someone is trying to create a personal campaign against the university. Remember everyone can post here and this information is not verified. So, one person can write over different names. This school is considered in top 20 to offer online education. The quality of the personnel, financial, academic, technical advisors is excellent. THE DEGREE IS HIGHLY RECOGNIZED FOR ANY EMPLOYER. I have got a lot of opportunities to work.The professors provide exceptional feedback, and every detail is well-done to improve your level of education. THIS UNIVERSITY IS ACCREDITED, and It is because its quality. Do not believe in SCAMMERS that come to post without knowing about the quality of the university.
In looking at some of the reviews, please use some discernment before making any judgments on this school. 1. Online learning is different from traditional education. You get out what you put into it. 2. Yes, people can steal work. No different than any other group setting, it's on if you don't advocate for yourself for what is right. 3. School, life, and work are all hard. 4. Education is not a panacea for finding a decent job. It's merely another tool. Nothing is for certain; your success is up to you. I enjoyed my time at this school and can say that the education has made me sharper, pushed me further, and has been one of the best investments that I have made. I would do it over again and urge anyone in my career field to pursue an education here.
I completed my Bachelor's degree with Bellevue and felt that the in class version was beneficial to me. I attended the online course for my Master's and felt it was extremely lacking. There is absolutely no instruction, peers are allowed to steal others work with no consequences (no matter how frequently this is reported), and grading is not based on the actual work being done. I have documented "discussions" where the "professor" is indicating that she is confused by the assignment or the direction that she is supposed to be giving us. If the "professor" doesn't understand, how are we supposed to know? When concerns are taken to a higher level, there is no concern expressed and you are simply referred back to the "professor" causing the issue. I will never attend classes here in the future, and I will not recommend this "University" to anyone that I know. I do disagree with the reviews indicating that these degrees are viewed as high school diplomas, and that anyone can get them. I have seen several co-workers drop courses or fail courses due to the difficulty, however I will agree that the scenarios and teaching presented does NOT match what is happening in real life. Academic counseling, enrollment services, and financial aid services are equally bad. Phone calls and emails are not returned or questions do not seem to be understood. Perhaps the staff needs to attend some degree courses as well. Too bad I wasted another year and a half of my life and money on this.
Outstanding! Not a fly by night program...I learned a lot from this rigorous program. I went to Texas AM and University of Nebraska, and this program was much more inline with real world education. This is not an easy program and if you decide to pursue a degree here in person or online be ready to work hard and learn everything you can!
This is not a good school at all. You will not get a job after you graduate except that you major in BS computer but their master degree in computer is not good. Do not waist your time taking classes at Bellevue , go to UNO or UNL if you are in Nebraska. Bellevue University won't offer you internship if you Black.
I'm very concerned that my degree from this school is not viewed by employers as one that matters. I've been told that a degree from here is like a high school diploma... everyone can get one. :( My experience is that the school has a ton of turn over. Faculty and advisors just seem to leave the University all the time. No one stays. This is weird and my friends say this isn't normal. There is something going on with this school that isn't right. I don't know what it is, but I recommend looking for other options. It is a good choice if it is your only choice I guess. Best of luck with your studies.
I am very satisfied with education I receive at Bellevue University. Attending Bellevue University was an excellent experience in every way. I would highly recommend Bellevue for any student in need of an excellent online bachelors degree program, especially in computer science or technology. When choosing an online program you want a school that is honest, affordable, and provides an education that is relevant in your field of study. I found this to completely true with Bellevue University. I am very satisfied with the curriculum in my degree program. They covered all of the topics I needed to study and did so in a genuine fashion. I use all that I have learned at Bellevue in my career and I am greatly appreciative of the thoughtfulness Bellevue uses in their degree programs. I would like to continue studying towards my Master's degree and would not hesitate to select Bellevue again. I would recommend this university to any adult student who is serious about earning their degree with an online program. The instruction was excellent and they created an environment where you could engage with your fellow students as well even though you are online. On all counts I am more than satisfied with my experience with Bellevue University and I am grateful I selected and attended this university to complete my degree.
Online Degree Program (never took classes in person) Instructors have you teach yourself by reading your text book. You have "discussions" with your peers via forums each week. They are not helpful and force classmates to come up with "substantial " comments regarding your post. It's awkward because once a person addresses the topic, there's usually very little left to say. The online format is not user friendly. The interface is like using something from the 90's. You only "learn" what you retain from your text book and have no instruction for real life situations. The saddest part is that several employers don't recognize Bellevue as a "real" learning institution. I might as well have graduated from 7-11. Do yourself a favor and attend a reputable school that has quality instructors where you'll actually learn something.
I'm in the process of collecting complaints specific to Bellevue University located in Bellevue, Nebraska. Complaints specific to bait and switch and or predatory practices. I enrolled in a program that turned out to be nothing specific to what I was seeking. After being assigned to multiple 'Coaches' to address this problem, only to be referred to the other folks giving me lip service, I dropped from the program and I am pursuing litigation (Collective Class Action) at this time. If you have a similar circumstance and you are seeking a refund, please contact me at email@example.com and I will put you in contact with my attorney.
