| I took a few classes at Univ of MD, MSW program (on-site). I had an idea of what to expect for a clinical graduate program prior coming to Bellevue. Bellevue's clinical counseling program is on par with other schools. I personally flew out to the school, toured the campus and met w/ the dean. It met my expectations. To do over, I would still go into this program. My advisor has been helpful and emails to different campus services are always responded to promptly. The school can make suggestions (& give feedback) for different internship sites, but they do not look for you or set them up for you. The professors are pretty good. Some are better than others, but it's like that at most schools. |

| I am 2/3rds of the way through the Masters in Clinical Counseling program (MSCC) at Bellevue University. Thusfar, it has been both challenging and rewarding. I can say for certain that this particular program is anything but a "diploma mill" - there are no shortage of people who have no business going into human services that do NOT make it through the program. I have taken courses both on campus and online. The online courses are actually harder than the classes you take on the campus. Expect 2-3 assignments and 1-2 chapters of reading PER ONLINE CLASS, PER WEEK. Expect at least one (rarely two) assignments and 1-2 chapters of reading PER RESIDENTIAL CLASS, PER WEEK. The MSCC program is on point as far as being CACREP certified (meaning your degree will get you a licence in most states). They have a nice interactive map of what states you can get a licence with, and if you can't, WHY you can't. If you plan on distance learning, make sure that the degree fulfills the requirements for the state in which you intend to practice. Staff has been extremely knowledgeable and helpful... all have worked for extensive amounts of time in the field (without exception)... the textbooks used are often the same textbooks you would find at more prestigious institutions...|
CONS: It's expensive compared to state schools.

| I gave the school a chance and attended for over a year. What I can say is that the Graduate programs are basically Undergraduate work, with a Graduate level label. In fact, I once spent an whole semester focusing on a business plan, and I did business plans in my 100 level business courses, and only for about a week. It was also frustrating to take a course and only spend about 4 weeks doing actual studies, and the other 8 simply commenting on stories from a book. Half the course was busy work, and the other half was a 10 page report over a topic in the field. Needless to say, after giving this school a chance, the education quality is not there, most of the teachers don't know how to teach, and it is just not worth it. I only gave it a chance hoping that the higher courses or other subjects would be better. I was wrong and emplore anyone reading this to pursue a degree elsewhere.|

| I attended Bellevue 96-98. I received my MS in Human Services in 98. I love Bellevue. As an undergraduate at UCLA I was miserable. I never thought I would go back to school, until my friend talked to me about Bellevue. The administration and staff were great. I still refer back to information I received while I was a student there. If you feel reluctant to go back to school you will find success at Bellevue. I worked full time and had 3 kids at home and did great! There were also fun people in the program and over 2 years we enjoyed our selves. GO Bellevue! |

| At first I didn't know what to expect from Bellevue University. I had seen the advertisements and wasn't too impressed but everyone at work recommended them. I came from a traditional four year university for my bachelors so this "online" stuff seemed far away. I have to tell you, from day one of my inquiry online I was contacted within a day and treated like a king. The gentleman on the phone was knowledgeable about the expectations of the program (MBA:Marketing) and was able to provide me with a class by class synopsis. I was curious about the job placement after graduation for alumni. He informed me that this was hard to track as 98% of their graduate students are currently enrolled. So, that makes sense that a statistic on this wouldn't make sense and be biased. For someone from the University to tell a prospective student this really help with my buy in. I applied to several other schools in the area (Creighton, UNO) and decided on BU because classes were at night, online and the cost was cheaper than both of the other schools. UNO has low tuition but their fees are outrageous. Creighton...you pay for the name. It is funny how Creighton uses text books written by BU faculty!! |

I took an MBA online while working a 32 hour/week schedule. While the work load was generally challenging and occasionally intimidating, it was possible to manage as long as you maintained a consistent presence.|
I was working as the finance manager of a small company while working toward an MBA in accounting, which supports my undergraduate BS in Business Administration. The coursework was directly applicable to my very "real world" experiences, and much of what I learned was in fact applied to my work. I did not find the coursework to be too basic, but rather built upon my undergrad degree.
In general, the instructors were amazingly available. There were very few delays of even one day between an emailed question and the response, and on those few occasions when my (ostensibly incorrect) response to a quiz question was supportable, the instructors did not hesitate to reconsider their position and issue credit... except for one time when the instructor provided further instruction to remove some of the excess bone from my head.
If you are tough enough to take an online degree (and it's not for everyone, by any means), I wholeheartedly recommend Bellevue. The course content and low credit hour cost is a great bargain!

| THis was the best educational experience I've ever had -- and I've been to a LOT of schools. If they offered the PhD program there, I would have stayed. The faculty are incredibly supportive and fair. I HIGHLY recommend their graduate programs. |
