"As a graduate with a 3.9 GPA with a Cybersecurity major, I can say that this experience has been the biggest mistake of my life. The program was 98% theoretical and even then, I had to study full time for months after graduation to achieve the basic security + certification. I was entirely unprepared and filled with a false sense of hope. My decision has waisted years of my life and thousands of dollars and I am ashamed of my choice. My biggest regret is not having any projects to discuss in interviews that required any real effort. The hardest project was the pentest report which each command was spoon-fed. I hope this review saves prospective students time and money by going somewhere that will actually help them build skills."

"I was a former ITT Tech student. When the school closed I was sent scrambling to find another school and hoped that they would transfer my credits that I had earned already. I came across Bellevue and they were very optimistic about transferring my credits. I enrolled into their Cyber Security program and enjoyed most of the classes! Some of them I was already knowledgeable in because of self-learning. I really enjoyed working with the head of the Cyber Security department in the Penetration Testing class that I took. Overall, I would say the experience was great, even though books were pretty expensive ($100-$250) and most times didn't use them much. Those who have mentioned the Kirk-Patrick series in their reviews are mostly right. The class itself does nothing for your degree, but helps to train you on how to communicate with people of different opinions. There is one review stating that the assignment questions are very liberal leaning and if you are of a conservative background that you will fail. That was not my experience. I am a very outspoken conservative and that was reflective in my writing. The teacher always thanked me for my opinion on the matter and the way that I approached the question/subject for that week. That being said, you will not automatically fail if you have conservative ideas unless the teacher is being bias, which could happen I suppose. Course load wasn't horrible taking 2 classes a semester and working full-time. Just be sure to have decent time management and you will be just fine. I was working 50 hours a week and still carried a 4.0 GPA through my program. Good luck!"

"Well this initially would have been a 5 star review. I did two years on Bellevue's Online program. The staff was fantastic throughout all my cyber security courses. I did receive tutoring one semester for C# programming. The tutoring was all done on skype at scheduled times! My tutor was a student several years ago and tutors many Bellevue students he did a fantastic job. He would require me to attempt the assignments and then use share screen to show me where I went wrong but having me help figure it out. Best tutoring I have ever received. However.... the Kirkland Patrick series is very inappropriate. It makes you speak of topics that are very liberal based. If you are a conservative student beware the teacher will come up with various means to fail you. Failed on a paper that I spent days trying to write for a class that is not even going to help me with my degree. I think the community service requirement is fantastic and that it never hurts anyone to help out their community. I just feel the topics and outlines of the course are a type of liberal brainwashing. In a way it seems like I am being discriminated against because I am a conservative. Anyway, made straight A's until this course and was given great feedback from professors on my writing ability but not from this instructor I guess she has a different view on me than everyone else. Would be a shame for a student to fail their last semester based on a liberal biased teacher and course. I am about to take this up the chain at Bellevue until I can find someone willing to resolve this issue. It is truly unfair."

"To Whomever It May Concern: I enrolled at Bellevue University Online Program on June 4, 2018. This is my first semester with Bellevue, and it will end on August 11, 2018. My experience with Bellevue University so far is excellent. First, the flexibility of Bellevues online program fits my needs very well as a married family man with a full-time job. Second, I get to learn a lot from other students while participating in the online class discussion boards. The participation of students in the discussion boards is helping me expand my knowledge and perspective about the different topics covered in the classes. Additionally, the Bellevue curriculum is designed in a way that prepares students to further their education and reach their academic goals. Lastly, all my online classes (Hi152, EN102, and Bi206) helped me improve my writing skills, developed my confidence and critical thinking while participating in the online discussion boards. I highly recommend anyone who is seeking to further their education to consider Bellevue University. Bellevues curriculum, academic material for online classes and fees are affordable in comparison to most universities. You wont regret your time at Bellevue university if you are a hard-working and dedicated student. "
