About College in the High School (CHS)

College in the High School (CHS) is a concurrent enrollment program that expands education options for high school students by providing highly motivated students the opportunity to earn college credit for challenging high school courses that are equivalent in content and rigor to those offered on the BC campus. Students accumulate college credits and accelerate their academic accomplishments without sacrificing the high school experience. Upon completion of the high school course, the student’s transcript record is finalized in the college database. Students access their transcript – official or unofficial – through the BC website.
The CHS program at Bellevue College operates under the standards of the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP). As the sole accrediting body for concurrent enrollment partnerships, NACEP works to ensure that college courses offered by high school teachers adhere to the highest national standards and support the common interest of effectively and successfully helping bridge the transition from high school to college.
