Degree: Network and System Administration/Administrator
Graduation Year: 2016

The degree courses give you zero benefit unless you already have the skills and need the diploma to advance. You get zero benefit using any of the student assistance offered because you are an online student and you jaycwas well be invisible to the staff.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The course content was applicable to my career. However when I was recruited by Bellevue University, my first question was "is the BSN course accredited?" I was told that Bellevue University was an accredited college and holds a high reputation for its accreditation. I just finished the BSN course and after the course was over, we were told that the course was NOT ACCREDITED. I invested a huge amount of money and time (which I am running out of both) in an education that will get me nowhere in the future of further education. Bellevue has not said what they intend to do about this situation but as of this date, I DO NOT RECOMMEND this University. Their integrity is not as it was presented. Thanks Bellevue for a lot of wasted time and money!

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I selected Bellevue over other alternatives because of the program offerings and the seemingly knowledgeable admissions staff. I will admit that the courses themselves and my cohort interaction were great, but the "support" staff (financial aid, advising, etc.) are absolutely useless. When I enrolled, they bent over backwards to get things taken care of and completed so I could get started. Staff called back when they said they would. Things got done as promised. Now, in my second (and final) year, not so much. Staff never answers calls and makes it impossible to reach them because if you miss their call, you're stuck in an endless voicemail hell. You ask questions that advisors should be able to answer and instead of admitting they don't understand what you're asking or know the correct answer, they just tell you anything to be able to close the interaction. I'm guessing they must be assessed on their expediency in resolving issues (whether they really did or not) I was nickle and dimed over the conversion of my previous coursework (which was assigned a numeric "value" due to the age of the courses rather than being equated course for course). Had I taken this at face value, it would have caused me to take more courses because having only 2/3 of the requirement met (even though I took a FULL COURSE) isn't enough to graduate. I had to argue and fight to get them to make manual exceptions to get it approved. The capper was having my financial aid held up because of an alleged issue with my FAFSA, which turned out to actually be an issue with my HUSBAND'S information. I should have been finishing my pointless Kirkpatrick series so I can graduate next spring, but I am STILL waiting. And the follow up my FA rep promised? NON-EXISTENT! Like others, I also discovered that there are issues with compatibility of my degree with my chosen field. I made clear when I applied that I wanted to do Social Work and continue on to my doctorate. I was assured the program they steered me to would fulfill that goal. Turns out their clueless reps were wrong, just making up any answer to get me to sign on and in my state I can't even apply for licensure with this degree. I would NOT recommend this school if you aren't prepared to babysit them and do all the work to make sure you get what you paid for!
