Getting Started

Step 1: Apply

Applying for admissions is your first step as a new student. If you are returning to Bellevue College after being away for more than four quarters, you must submit a new application for admissions. The links below will provide you with important information about quarterly deadlines, how to apply for financial and other financial assistance as well as list tuition and additional course fees.

Step 2: Assessment

First time college students and transfer students who have not taken prior English or math courses need to take the assessment test.

Online students can come to Bellevue College or the closest community college that offers the COMPASS assessment test.

If you cannot find a location close to you, that offers the COMPASS test, please call (425) 564-2243, for more information.

Step 3: Advising

Meet with an adviser to get your education off to a good start.  The Bellevue College Advising Center provides personnel and online tools to help you navigate through your degree requirements.
