Advisors can provide information about program requirements, scheduling, additional options, transfer credits, and additional resources available to you. Meeting with an advisor is the best way to plan for a program of study. You are encouraged to schedule an appointment with an advisor to ensure that you will meet all of the requirements for program completion and/or graduation.
Information sessions are not being held at this time for the Molecular Biosciences programs.
International students should continue to meet with their Office of International Education (OIEGI) advisor in addition to the Molecular Biosciences advisor. They should also be sure to notify their OIEGI advisor once they have received notification of admissions into the BAS program. Additional information can be found on the OIEGI website.
Transfer Credits to Bellevue College
If you have earned credits at another regionally accredited school prior to attending BC, you may request an official transfer credit evaluation to determine which credits will apply toward the Molecular Sciences Technician AAST and/or Molecular Biosciences BAS. Students are strongly encouraged to request a transfer credit evaluation review once they have their Student Identification Number (before or during their first quarter at BC). The evaluation process can take six to eight weeks to complete (time varies based on request traffic).
Generally, Bellevue College only accepts credits earned at institutions accredited by their regional accredited association provided such credits have been earned through college-level courses that are applicable to the students program at BC. There are six regional accrediting agencies. For more details visit the BC course catalog.
To request the evaluation of your transcript please complete the form for General Transfer.
Credits from non-regionally accredited institutions follow the college’s policies and procedures for awarding non-traditional credit. Bellevue College awards non-traditional credit for prior learning. Credit may be awarded for work completed in private study, at non-accredited institutions, or for certificate/training.
Credit is awarded through examination, evaluation of certification/training, or submission of portfolio or other form of assessment. To apply for the credits, students must be registered at the college for the quarter in which non-traditional credits are requested and have completed ten quarter credit hours at the college. See Awarding Non-traditional Credit for more information.
