Bellevue University Reviews
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.
Bellevue University was a great experience for me. The class content was challenging and very informative. The project management degree is acredited by the Project Management Institute and the classes are definitely not easy. The instructors explain the content well and give professional critical feedback on your assignments to help you understand the material. We learned critical leadership and business skills as-well-as in-depth project management courses designed to help you earn the PMP certification. This is definitely not some sort of diploma-mill and the degree is consistantly ranked high in the U.S News rankings.
I was in the first graduating class from Bellevue College, later Bellevue University. The original campus was a Quonset hut just off the USAF base (OFFETT). My most memorable instructor was Professor M.; he taught psychology and HR classes. I was his student aid for Human Relations. I was allowed to transfer in a fair number of USAFI course credits. Going full time at nights, I got my BA in about 1.5 years. This had a significant effect on my military time. I qualified for OTS but got out due to medical problems. As a consequence of getting my degree my Captain gave me career advice that has helped me throughout my work and private life including working on advanced degrees.
I attended Bellevue University and received a Bachelor of Science in MIS. I had a great experience. I graduated on time without any issues. The date I was told I would be finished is when I finished. My advisor was great as well as the other advisors that helped me when she was out of the office. The online cohort is very fast paced and very demanding. There were many nights that I stayed up late and worked on assignments for several days. You will have several projects and many papers where you must demonstrate your knowledge and show that you are learning. Additionally, you will need to complete the KSS. Those courses require volunteer work and many papers along with it's own "capstone". Mines was around 45 pages at the end. This does not include the 45 page paper for my core courses. Bellevue University requires time management and dedication just like any other university and it IS a brick and mortar school. In the end it was all worth it for me.
I have two more semesters to go once I complete my current one - five weeks left! I am glad to see so many positive reviews as it has mirrored my experience at the school. My professors have been wonderful - particularly Professor Bergeron, who has taught all the classes for my major, thus far. Overall, the school has made me a better writer, researcher, and thinker. The curriculum is rigorous. There is a lot of work, and one has to be self-disciplined and organized to maintain both a good GPA and the benefits of the program. Which brings me to the negative reviews I saw as I scrolled through. None of the experiences these other students have written reflect mine. It is like I am reading about another school - entirely. Moreover, the review from a student who is a digital marketing major, my major, is somewhat misguided. While it is my understanding that this major will be eliminated and rolled under marketing, all students who are currently enrolled in the major will continue and graduate with a BS, not BA in Digital Marketing. I believe that I am among that last group - graduating next summer. I have been pleased with all my classes and professors. Again, it's not easy, but well worth the effort .
The student coach are always calling to ask how I'm doing, and if I need anything else. Professors will make sure you are learning by making discussions challenging while they use a good sense of humor. The enough interactions and assignments that they provide, will definitely help you in your future career. Putting into practice what you are learning is what stays with you for a life time. Instead of long APA papers, they will provide you with real life scenarios; and enough homework that bring into action a lot of critical thinking and mental effort.
As an adult learning who commutes and works full-time, Bellevue U (online) was a good fit for me. I thought the Business Management curriculum was extremely relevant to my career. This is not an easy program. I spent at least 12 hours every week on reading and assignments. Don't expect this to be a diploma mill.
At Bellevue University , classes are structured to address individual student needs. The courses are focused on getting students ready for the job market. Instructors are always available to answer questions, at any time. The online discussion threads are a great way to interact with fellow classmates wherever they may be.
Bellevue had everything I needed while giving me the flexibility to work full time and raise a family. There was help when I needed it and I felt supported by all the instructors and staff. Without their encouragement and family feeling my bachelors would not be possible.
Bellevue University offered me a quality education and a fantastic opportunity to advance my law enforcement career. Following graduation, I obtained a federal agent job offer (1811) and have since worked my way up to a senior manager (Assistant Special Agent in Charge) position at my organization. The education I received transferred well to my Graduate studies at top 50 nationally ranked university where I recently obtained my M.P.S in Homeland Security. I maintain that your education comes from the work you put into it. Bellevue is as good as most ranked universities and certainly gave me everything I needed to be successful.
