This school has been an amazing University! I started at Iowa Western than transferred to the University of Colorado Boulder. Many believe the bigger universities have more to offer and give better education, but I disagree. Bellevue not only helped me as a veteran, but as an individual and pushing me to be successful in every subject! They could use more in person classes, yet I realize they are a growing university!

I will be a new student at Bellevue University starting this winter term. I haven't been a full-time student in almost 10 years and the transition that I made was easy and effortless thanks to the advisors and enrollment specialists at Bellevue! I was hesitant at first to do my degree online, and I wasn't sure my credits I had done from 10 years ago would have been accepted, but my enrollment specialist worked with me for several weeks to make sure that everything went smoothly and that I got as much out of my previous classes as possible. I am looking forward to starting the new term and thanks to everyone that has helped me out, I'm looking forward to starting my college career again!
I am currently a student in Bellevue's MS Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. I selected this school because of its CACREP accreditation. This school is open access, offering quality education to anyone who is willing to work hard for it. I believe their acceptance rate for my graduate program is around 43%.

Classes may be taken in person or online, though currently, most/all courses moved to online due to Covid-19 considerations.

Most of my professors have been attentive, helpful, & friendly. Students are expected to work independently at the master's level, so do not expect much hand-holding. Still, the school has a quality writing lab available. Academics are rigorous and comparative to other private graduate schools.

My experience with the financial aid department thus far has been smooth sailing. Tuition is a little on the heavy side but is still competitive for a private, non-profit institution.

All in all, no complaints. 4 out of 5 stars.
