  • It generally takes three business days (does not include weekends and holidays) for the college to process your application. However, you can use the link above to see our current processing times.
  • Check your email often. Once we process your application we send a welcome email with your student ID number and instructions on the next steps you need to complete before you register for classes. You may also view these next steps by going to Getting Started at Bellevue College.
  • The college places a $66 application fee, which includes English and math placement processes on your account at the time we process your application. You pay this fee at the time you pay your first quarter tuition. Once paid, the fee is non-refundable.
