Bellevue University Reviews
This is the small university that most people take the online class to earn a master degree. It is not hard to pass the class and get the degree. Some courses are useful, such as CIS 515 IT infrastructure, and cloud computing. Some courses are useless such as CIS 520. I don't know why they choose this course for an IT student. It is very fast to get a master degree which only takes less than two years. Each quarter, I only take two courses that are easy to handle. Depending on the professor, I would recommend taking the in-campus course. Some teacher told me useful stuff; some professors just read PPT. Most assignments are easy to pass. It is suitable for me.
I attended this university and I am very appreciative of my education. My previous credits transferred in nicely. As far as my classes go, it was a requirement of my degree to be currently working in healthcare. In my particular degree, they were able to give me topics in each of my classes that I had to relate to my particular experiences in my job. This helped me work through real life situations that I would encounter. The feedback received from these papers, I truly believe, gave me better insight to help me be more confident in a future job. I highly recommend this program! I have yet to find a job yet, concerning management is more geared towards having an education AND experience, but I am optimistic I have one of the necessary job requirements completed. I do agree with the other students that the financial aid process is a nightmare. After having attended UNL and UNO previous to this, I recognize how terrible Bellevue's financial aid processes are. They are not efficient and often make mistakes in calculating funding, as well as having a requirement of way more paperwork than is necessary. This is major area they are needing to work on. I also agree that the advisers have a large turnover rate. In my personal experience, I went through 4 counselors in a year and a half. This makes it very difficult to know who to turn to when you have an issue or questions concerning your degree. Overall, I would highly recommend Bellevue University based solely on the classroom work. Issues surrounding their financial aid and counselor's make it more difficult to fully love Bellevue but I know I would go back for my Masters in a heartbeat.
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.
Great school and made online learning easy. Expensive classes and in order to get your Bachelor's you have to take a extra class that has nothing to do with your degree plan. The University's way of making money when it categorizes itself as Non-Profit.
