Welcome to Bellevue College’s Academic Advising

The Academic Advising Department promotes student success by engaging students in developing educational plans in relation to their career and life goals.  We strive to meet the diverse and unique needs of each student by mutual teaching, learning, and relationship building.

Our Academic Advisors Can Help You:
