Advising and Assessment Testing

Advising For Distance Education Students

The Distance Education program offers academic advising for students who plan to fulfill most or all of their degree requirements through distance courses. Our Distance Education advisor will help you plan your program to ensure that you receive the credits you need for your study interests.  Our advisor can also serve as a contact in case you have questions or concerns during your course work.

First, we urge you to:

Courses offered for the next quarter are posted prior to the start of registration. If you don't see next quarter's schedule here, check back later. (Look for courses coded OAS, OBS, etc.)

Assessment Testing

Before you can register for Bellevue College credit courses, you must take the English and math assessments. Before you may take the assessment tests for math and English, you must be enrolled at Bellevue College and have received your BC Student Identification Number (SID).

Bellevue College's Math and English Departments require all students who live within 35 miles of campus to come to campus for computer-based testing.

For most students, English and math assessments are taken on campus. Learn more...

If you intend to pursue your degree or certificate entirely online and are at a great distance from the campus, the English assessment and/or math assessment can be taken at a distance by special arrangement. Contact the Testing Center at (425) 564-2243, or by email at
