Bellevue University Reviews
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.
The college makes it easy to learn online. The registration is simple and they provide great support for those who are utilizing the GI Bill. The Major courses are great and the instructors are excellent. They fall short a bit in the core course and especially in their required Kirkpatrick series. That particular class is poorly setup and completely useless. I would recommend this college even though you have to really knuckle through some bad general requirements.
As a former Army Sergeant I was being held back for promotions in the corporate world for not having a degree. Not only did Bellevue make the application extremely easy, they went out of their way to help me. My first class is finished, and although it took a lot of study on my part, I am excited with the results. The assignments hit the mark as far as real world applications. I have excellent class mates so far and Bellevue University has exceeded my expectations.
