Degree Audit and Academic Plan

Admitted students can track their progress through the program by utilizing Degree Audit which is an online advising tool that allows you to view degree and certificate requirements and track the courses you have left to complete. The RAIS Program Manager will also set up an academic plan within Degree Audit that lists your tentative future coursework by quarter.

Register for Classes

When you are ready to register for your quarterly classes, register online through the college website. Some of our courses are in high demand–there are more students who want to enroll than we have seats– so be sure to register for your classes as soon as possible.


Requesting Entry Codes

In many cases, as a student admitted to the BAS-RAIS program, you can register for RAIS courses without an entry code. However, there are a few courses that will still require them.

Background Check

Bellevue College requires you to obtain national background checks at specific points in the course of this program.


Upon acceptance into the program students will be required to submit copies of their immunization records.

Your Educational Plan

When you’ve been admitted to the BAS program, you will sit down with the RAIS Program Manager and work out an educational plan for completing your degree requirements.
