Graduation Rate

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

DO NOT ORDER THE ELECTRONIC TRANSCRIPTS BECAUSE THEY ARE COMPLETELY USELESS!!!!! I tried to order my transcripts for a job and they are insanely expensive ($10 for electronic and $15 for paper when I only play $5 for my masters transcripts at a different school). When you receive the email for the electronic copy it comes as a pdf download which is completely useless to employers because it's considered a copy. But before you order Bellevue tells you that the electronic ones are legit which you don't find out is a lie until after the fact. When I spoke to the registrar's office they told me sorry but if you want them sent to your employer you will just have to pay again. Like they are so cheap, right? What a scam!

I finished my undergraduate degree in 2014 from Bellevue. I think it depends on a number of variables such as timing, program/major, individual instructors, etc. that determine one's experience at any school.My experience was pleasant and the professors were experienced and knowledgeable. The coursework was intense. I particularly enjoyed the KSS. It gave my degree a liberal arts component that gavethe degree a worth beyond the typical college degree.I knocked off one star because of the expense.

This is my first year of school here at Bellevue & I am extremely happy so far. I am most impressed by how helpful the faculty is ; and how much the professors are willing to go out of their way to help you get the best education possible. There is a lot of resources and facilities available for free not to mention how much money they give in scholarships on top of how affordable it is already. If you are looking for a school that provides the best experience or opportunity Bellevue University is the school. GO BRUINS!

If there was a zero it would of gotten that low, terrible experience. The "professors" do not even hold a Ph.D., The cost is 10x that of more credible universities. Absolutely a disgrace to the Omaha metro community.

Very bad experience getting my Masters. I completed my Bachelor's degree with no problems. Later enrolled in the Masters course and mid-way thru got sick, went thru a horrible divorce, relocated to another state and lost my father! This all happened within months of each other. This taught me that Bellevue doesn't care about their students all they care about is money! I can't make payment arrangements and re-enroll or anything at this time. They refuse to help a struggling student and single mom! Stay away from this school because when life happens they will give you the boot!
