Tuition and Fees


Course fees vary in eLearning due to the wide variety of types of classes, methods of distribution, costs of programming, and residency status. For a comprehensive explanation of Bellevue College tuition and fees, including information about costs for the Bachelor’s (upper division) programs and payment options, visit the BC Tuition and Fees page.

At Bellevue College, a typical degree program requires 91 credits, usually 17 five-credit college level courses and one six-credit science (with lab) class.  Most Bellevue College eLearning classes are 5 credits, although there are exceptions. Please check the course you are interested in to figure the cost.  Each eLearning course taken, regardless of total number of credits, will incur an additional $52.50 eLearning fee. This fee is not included in the table of costs per-credit charge on the BC Tuition and Fees page. Books and materials are the student’s responsibility, and are also not included in the table.
