Information for Out of State Students

Before offering distance education classes in other states, all institutions of higher education must obtain authorization from those states to offer classes to their residents. At this time, due to extraordinarily high costs to obtain authorization, and/or other limiting factors, we regret that Bellevue College cannot offer distance education classes to students who live in Alabama, Kentucky, Maryland, and Puerto Rico.

Other states may have restrictions for certain programs that include internships, externships, clinicals and practicums. Please contact for more information.

Bellevue College is now a member of SARA. SARA is a nationwide initiative of states that make eLearning education courses more accessible to students across state lines and make it easier for states to regulate and institutions to participate in interstate eLearning education.
