Bellevue University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (53)
I attended the college and obtained an MS in Security Management. It was to most challenging program I had ever experienced. The workload was a lot but it challenged me and I learned a great deal about a field I had been in for over 15 years. Everyone I come into contact with in the Faculty and staff were extremely helpful. Since graduating I received and took a position as a VP of Security and have been in the position for almost 4 years. This was the greatest investment I made in my future.
I would NEVER refer this college to ANYONE! This college is RIP OFF! They take your money and run with it. I received a BS degree in BS literally! I was a great student all As and Bs. I had a referral letter for a job in which I thought was going to be my big shot in my career. HA! The funding was cut after I was there a year and Bellevue has a place you can go to get help finding a job. Yeah, I went there, GOT ZERO HELP! What this college fails to tell you is a degree in Behavioral Science GOES NOWHERE!!!! HIGH SCHOOL KIDS CAN DO MY JOB I BUSTED MY A** TO LEARN TO DO!!!!! AND they get paid the same! I was also in the clinical counseling graduate program. WHAT A JOKE! SAME professor as my undergraduate degree. Are you serious?? that should have been a red flag! Well, after about a year or so into the Counseling program I get a job interview and at a well known place known for counseling. She looks at my resume and she sees I graduated from Bellevue, and that I am still attending Bellevue, and this is where my hours would be coming from. Do you know what this lady said to me? She said Bellevue is not an accredited college or a college we like to accept good qualified candidates from. I showed my professor he basically said yeah well its true. I decided right then and there I AM OUT OF HERE! I talked to my advisor and told her that I was going to leave the program. She told me when the appropriate time to leave was. I left, and I got a bill in the mail for $411.00!! for my student loans coming back unpaid for the semester, I called Bellevue and they told me its what I owe for skipping out half way through the semester! I DIDNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I called that damn place a 100 times. NO HELP! THEY LIE and they cover there asses and mess up your life! I have been trying to get into nursing school for TWO YEARS!! Just waiting on Bellevue's transcripts! The college I am trying to attend says this is exactly the kind of BS we have heard from our students who were former students or students looking at Bellevue!!! RUN RUN FAR AWAY! ITS A SCAM AND ITS NOT A DEGREE YOU CAN DO SHIT WITH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RUN! EVEN IN SCHOOL THE PROFESSOR DID NOTHING! WE READ OUR BOOKS AND WE TALKED ABOUT IT IN CLASS!! NOT WORTH RUINING YOU LIFE! NOT EVEN A ONE STAR!
Expensive, predatory, not military friendly! I got stuck in transit on the way home from a deployment and could not attend classes for almost a month. After several attempts, I was not able to retake the courses or have the classes refunded, but they finally dropped the failing grades. I was 3 classes from my degree so I reenrolled. I got to my last class and they informed me that they changed their mind and I now I had 3 more classes.
This is an awesome school and personally my journey here was smooth sailing. Like all schools each professor is different and some challenge you more than others. I feel that I learned a lot from my time here and plan on starting my masters with them shortly.
Excellent MBA with a decent price. Prepared me exceptionally well for transitioning from the military (Air Force). Courses were relevant to the real world and allowed me to directly apply classroom learning to "live" projects at work. I have since been accepted into a nationally respected Ph.D.
I applied for Bellevue and sent the transcripts they requested except 1 that I couldn't obtain. I had 1 transcript from when I attended college overseas that I couldn't get and they wouldn't work with me. So they decided to withdraw my enrollment. The worst part...there were 2 colleges I attended that wasn't on the list! My previous one which included my undergraduate degree and the very first college which I had a lot of transfer credits in. This college wont work with you and any issues that you may have come up, you're on your own. I'm thankful for this experience as it shows the true character of the school and the potential nightmare to come.
This is my second degree at this school at a masters level. After arranging my internship with CHI, the biggest healthcare provider in the state I was told by the school that they don't work with CHI. This is a relationship I've fostered with the leader in this career field for the purpose on educating myself and I was denied the opportunity to work with them. I of course was waiting for some explanation that would point out a difference in phylosophies or a need for the university to hold to some obligation with chi that it was unwilling to do. Imagine my surprise when it basically boiled down to they were unwilling to receive and sign off on the fact that I was current on my physical and shots. Yes, signing a form and faxing was too much for the counseling career department. Shame on you Bellevue! This is the job that your educating people for. You're supposed to be educating and encouraging and your road blocking. You've left a bad taste in my mouth and those in my network. I'll be beyond glad to recommend any of the other schools in the area throughout my career, excluding you. Others would have jumped at the opportunity to work with the leading medical provider in the region. Your response? They aren't good enough for Bellevue
The college was a pleasure to attend. The teachers and staff were there to make sure you succeeded. The course material was current and relevant to my career path.
I am currently pursuing my MSM/ Entrepreneurship at Bellevue University, and it has been an exceptional educational experience. Every single professor during my course work has challenged my knowledge, research and writing abilities at the graduate level. In addition, at this University the students will earn their grades, (nothing is given away) and at the same time, professors to include my academic advisor have always been available during their office hours and responded to each e-mail with a sense of urgency. This is a great place to be.
I attended this school twice, once for my BS HR Management and returned again to complete the MSHRSM. Although I think the programs and the ability to complete your education are worth attending this university. I remain unimpressed with the lack of compassion and empathy from two of the professors, one who is the program direction. I have learned they both happen to be close friends which is understandable why they both similiar lack of human empathy. The first time, the professor failed to explain my incorrect research before granting me an F. At the start of the graduate program, I was late turning in my final paper (worth 50% of the class grade) by one day and although grades had not been submitted, I received an F. This created financial aid problems for me. Although I understand the importance of syllabus instructions and turning papers on time, there are times when unexpected situations arise. The next class I received a C for a a paper when the information contained had been used previously for a paper I received a A. These type of vindictive actions compromised my financial aid and I am now expected to pay out of pocket to bring my GPA up to 3.00. If you are a hard working student and don't mind HR professionals who are not value based leaders, go for it! If your expectations include HR professionals accountable with the ability to collabortively work with your towards your educational goals with great empathy! This is not the school for you! Don't bother appealing, instead of answeringif the process lacked overt empathy, the Dean will provide you with random filters from overall class information.I only complain because the principle of the syllabus overtly allows these two professors to discrimiate especially if you enter the program with more experience.
