Bellevue University Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish I would have known how much time I would need for writing papers.


I went to Kaplan for my AA in Criminal Justice and Bellevue is alot more work and tougher, which I enjoy. They seem to care and have interest in getting a person where they want to be. It is also an excelled program which is nice. I can get to my goal of being a Domestic Abuse counselor sooner.


The amount of group projects. It has been really rough with the lack of effort from other students to keep GPA up.


There is not really anything I can think of because this was my dream school in High School. I would use all my college visit days from High School to visit the campus and get to know my advisors along with my main professor.


I wish that I had spent time familiarizing yourself with Onetstop. It is key to success and being able to navigate the portal is essential to success at Bellevue.


I wish I had realized how expensive college can be in general. I am a working single mother, so sometimes I have had to choose between education and other living expenses.


I wish I would have known more about my major. I want to be an Emergency Medical Technician and they don't have that. The next best thing is nursing but I don't know what to go into now.


I wish I would have known how convenient this school was. If I had, I would have attented sooner!


The one thing I wish I would have known more about this schools would be the sports that were offered. At the time they only had a few and not much was advertised. I would have like to be involved more with sports verses working.


I wish I would have known the complete amount of my tuition and books for the entire program (start to finish). And, I also wish I had known the total amount of financial aid would receive all four years to. Now I am in my last semester and don't have enough to cover my tuition and books. I am in a dire position.


I wish I would have had a better understanding of the aggregate limits for financial aid. I have the fall and winter term left, and I am out of funding. Without scholarships, I will not be able to finish school.


I wish I would have known the exact breakdown of costs associated with tuition and fees and what amount would not be covered by tuition assistance each month.


I did a lot of research prior to choosing Bellevue so I do not think I was lacking any information before enrolling.


How the Online Programs Worked out. (Maybe a Demo)


Before I started this school, I wish I would have been able to to have a better idea of what our time in class would be spent doing. Sometimes it feels like the class turns more into a social hour. Although it is sometimes relaxing and has helped me build better relationships with my peers it can still make me annoyed that I am not really learning about the class subject. This then causes more work outside the class which is stressful because I also work a full-time job.


I did a lot of research prior to attending this university and my husband is a graduate of Bellevue University so I had most of the information I needed prior to enrolling.


I wish I had known the true value of money.


I wish I would have known how great of a school it really was. I went to community college right out of high school and then transferred to another local University. I ended up dropping from my program and it took ten years for me to come back to school. That is when I decided to give Bellevue University a try. I love it. The classes are challenging and the teachers are attentive. I am doing better in school now then I ever have before.


I researched this school for several years before registering. I feel that I was well prepared with no surprises.


I was familiar with Bellevue before deciding to enter into their online, accelerated degree programs. I am an acquisition professional with the Federal Government. Bellevue University partnered with the Federal Acquisition Institute several years ago as a means for the acquisition community to complete online classes in order to meet mandated educational requirements needed for advancement. Maybe the only thing I wish I would have known about Bellevue was how easy they made it for me to complete my education. If I had known, I would have enrolled sooner than I did.


I wish I knew that my financial aid funds were almost depleted. However, my financial advisor and student advisor helped me every step of the way and made sure that I had the resources available for scholarships, grants, and loans.


The financial aid process was very long initially and it is always better to have your academic advisor register you for classes.


Actually, there have been no surprises for me. After my husband passed away and I decided to get a degree, I spent several months researching colleges. Once I realized that Bellevue University had the program I was interested in, I focused my research on that university. I made a lot of phone calls and asked a lot of questions. By the time I started classes, I knew what I was getting in to.


I recently went back to school in January 2011 to Gwinnett Technical College. In May 2012, I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Accounting. I am now planning on attending Bellevue University. I suppose this question really applies to Gwinnett Tech, as I have not started studies at Bellevue. I wish I would have known how time consuming school is when you want to do more than just get by. My studies took away most of my social life. In the end, I finished with a 4.0 GPA. It was worth not having a life for a while!


Additional scholarships to apply for.


Bellevue University did an excellent job of warning potential students of the accelerated program the amount of work involved. I wish that I would have listened to the enrollment advisers a little more closely so I was better prepared for the amount of effort involved in the accelerated program. It's an excellent program however it does take a lot of work to get through it. You are truly covering a 12 week course in 4 weeks. It is a lot of reading on top of homework assignments but it's worth it in the end!


I wish I had realized how much discipline it would take to do an online accelerated degree program. This has tested my resolve to finish my degree and has also shown me how much drive I actually have.


That the financial aid department and the student advisors could be more helpful! At times I feel both of these departments could do a better job!


I wish I would have known how helpful the Proffesors are before I came to this school. I have been to other colleges where the Proffesor's do not want to do much beyond the classroom.


I wish I had the registrar complete the my audit first; I may have been more inclined to contest how much credit was given for previous schooling and courses.


The group projects, that is one thing I really did not want to have.
