It was a great experience being able to learn so much from the vast experience of my fellow students in the accelerated cohort program. I learned more with this format than I ever could have in a normal classroom environment.

If you have earned your associate’s degree
If you're transferring from a community college to Bellevue University and have already earned an associate's degree – congratulations! We accept ALL associate’s degrees:
- Associate of Arts
- Associate of Science
- Associate of General Science
- Associate of Applied Science
The credits earned in your associate’s degree will fulfill the General Education Core Curriculum requirements of your traditional bachelor degree program or accelerated bachelor's degree completion program.
If you have close to 60 credit hours completed at an accredited college or university
The Admissions Counselors at Bellevue University will review the credits previously earned to determine how they can be applied toward your General Education or Electives requirements. After reviewing this information, they will help you formulate a degree completion game plan. To see how credits transfer, please visit the Transfer Credit Guide.
If you have some credits, but not enough to start an accelerated degree completion program
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.
If you have not earned an associate’s degree, or have fewer than 60 credits, we have many ways to help you earn what you need to get started – including credit for training completed on the job or in the military, as evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE). Our Admissions Office staff will complete an evaluation showing which requirements you've met, and which courses you will need to complete.

Bellevue University has a helpful and knowledgeable enrollment staff who will work with you to create a personalized degree completion plan based on your educational history. Call for more information (402) 293-2000 or 800-756-7920.
