Distance Learning for You?
About Distance Learning
Distance degree programs at Bellevue
College are designed for students who
prefer to learn at home, following their own schedules.
Distance learning students get the same breadth
and depth of material and earn the same college
credit as do students in the classroom. Bellevue College distance
courses fulfill course outcomes identical to on-campus
courses of the same title, and most distance courses
have been designed and are taught by the same faculty
members who teach those courses on campus.
Bellevue College distance courses and online student services
fulfill the needs of students who possess the motivation
and self discipline to focus, set goals, and complete
course assignments without daily face-to-face contact
in a traditional classroom. Although you save time
commuting to campus, you still need to put in the
hours that a college course requires to absorb material,
read textbooks, and complete assignments and exams.
