Step 6: Submit Transcripts to the Evaluations Office

Official paper transcripts and documents should be mailed to:

Bellevue College
ATTN: Student Central/Enrollment Services B125
3000 Landerholm Circle SE
Bellevue, WA 98007-6484

Official electronic transcripts must be sent directly by the institution. We cannot accept copies that are forwarded from your personal email account. If the electronic transcript was downloaded and viewed by anyone else, we cannot use it for transfer credit. Electronic transcripts and documents should be emailed to:

You do not need to send official Bellevue College transcripts since you are not transferring those credits.

Be sure to upload unofficial copies of your transcripts to your application on NursingCAS, including the unofficial transcript from Bellevue College if you took classes here.

In very rare circumstances, a committee of Nursing faculty and staff may need to interview applicants if there is still a tie after applications have been sorted by 1. Total Score, 2. Science GPA, and 3. TEAS Score. To date, this has not happened.
