Healthcare Management Degree - Bachelor of Science

Specific Degree Entry Requirements

The Bachelor of Healthcare Management (BHM) program changed degree entry requirements in March, 2011. Prior to this, 3 years of healthcare industry experience was required. This requirement has been discontinued. Students are eligible to enter the BHM program through meeting either Option 1 or Option 2 of the new requirements.

The new requirements are as follows:

  • Option 1: Students are eligible to enter the program if they are working a minimum of 20 hours per week (0.5 FTE) within the healthcare industry (resume should be submitted as part of the pre-admission packet).
  • Option 2: If a student is not employed at least part-time (0.5 FTE) within healthcare, they may alternately provide the University with a Letter of Commitment from an organization within the healthcare industry that will support the student throughout the completion of the degree major. This letter should be agreed upon with the site mentor that will be providing mentorship. Additional information about the agreement between the student and healthcare industry organization is included within the letter.

It is the student's responsibility to secure this agreement, and ensure that an agreement with a healthcare industry organization remains in place during the entire cohort program if not working within healthcare at least part time.

Steps to complete the process for securing a letter of commitment:

  • Print the Letter of Commitment for the BHM program.
  • Meet with the healthcare organization mentor that you plan to use for the agreement, secure their commitment, and provide their information on the form. Your mentor must be at the Director level or above.
  • Complete all information sections of the BHM Letter of Commitment.
  • Fax the completed form to your admissions counselor at 402-557-5421.

    Mail the completed form to:
    Attention: (Insert your admissions counselor name), Undergraduate Admissions Counselor
    Bellevue University
    1000 Galvin Road South
    Bellevue, Nebraska 68005

This information will become a part of your admission packet. Please remember to consider mail time when completing the application process if mailing rather than faxing the information.

Please contact Dr. Mike Freel, Healthcare Program Director, at 402-557-7121 for any questions specifically related to the letter of commitment.

Undergraduate Admissions

  • All applicants for admission to Bellevue University are required to submit an Application for Admission accompanied by a one-time application fee of $50 for undergraduate programs. International Students, please click here for Admission information.
  • Submit official documentation of high school completion (official high school transcript, GED transcript, home school letter of completion or student certification of high school completion).
  • An applicant transferring from another institution of higher education also must satisfy the following requirements:
    Submission of an official transcript from each accredited institution previously attended. (The transcript must be mailed directly from the previous institution to the Bellevue University Student Records) Transcripts must be submitted even though credit may not have been earned at the previous institution, and even though transfer credit may not be granted.

    • Foreign Credential Evaluation Process
  • Transfer in good standing from the last institution of higher education attended. No individual course will be accepted for transfer when it carries a grade below "C-." Associate's and bachelor's degrees, however, are transferred in full.
    Note: To satisfy minimum residency degree requirements, transfer students must complete a minimum of 30 hours in-residence at Bellevue University, including at least 12 hours in upper-level courses in each of their major areas (except for Business Administration majors that require 21 upper-level hours, and Accounting majors that require 24 upper-level hours).
  • Students dismissed from another institution during the previous five years for academic or disciplinary reasons will be accepted for admission after one year has elapsed since dismissal from that institution. Dismissed students will be accepted only in academic probation status. On occasion, students may make special application to the appropriate college dean and the Dean of Academic Services/Dean of Students, respectively, for provisional admission before completion of the one-year suspension.
  • In all cases of transfer, the credit evaluation is completed by Student Records using guidelines set forward by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
