- Q: How long has Bellevue University been offering classes in Lincoln?

However, with the expanding programs and our desire to give our students the best learning environment – we made the move to Taylor Meadows Office Park in September 2005.
- Q: How does the bachelor's degree completion program work?
A: Students who enter a Bellevue University degree completion program should have an associate's degree or about 60 credit hours. This ensures that all students in the program have the academic background necessary to tackle the content of the major area of study. It also ensures that your classmates have the same level of preparation that you do.
You are assigned to your program with your class. You then move through the program with that same class until completion of your major. This takes 15 months.
All undergraduate students at Bellevue University also are required to take a cluster of courses on American Vision and Values called the Kirkpatrick Signature Series. The Signature Series takes three months to complete. While some students enroll in the Signature Series simultaneous to their major program, it is not advised.
- Q: You mentioned "cost-effective and time-saving options for earning credit." What are those?
A: Chief among cost-effective ways of earning credit are CLEP and DSST examinations. Both of these organizations offer a series of for-credit exams, which give you the opportunity to demonstrate college-level learning by passing a 90-minute, multiple choice examination. CLEP and DSST exams are offered at numerous locations across the country, including many college and university campuses. The Bellevue University campus is the site of the most CLEP tests administered in the United States.
Additionally, Bellevue University offers many single courses online in our ONCourse program. The ONCourse classes are delivered on the Cyber-Active® Learning platform - which means they're easy to access and available 24/7.
Bellevue University recognizes that college-level learning can be achieved in many ways. We have the ability to assess learning you have gained on the job or through other life experience for college credit. We also award college credit for many professional certifications and corporate training programs.
- Q: How many credits are required for undergraduate graduation?
A: Bellevue University requires 127 credits for graduation. Students in the degree completion program typically start with 60 credit hours. The major is 36 credit hours, and the Signature Series is another 9 credit hours. That leaves an additional 22 credit hours that must be completed. Many students find that these can be earned through work experience they already have, certifications, corporate training, and/or for-credit examinations, such as CLEP or DSST.
