Meet Chris, a Veteran and Bellevue University Graduate

"I have a schedule that demands traveling approximately three weeks a month, which would have made it difficult, if not impossible, to attend regular lectures and regular meeting times. Bellevue University is the ideal institution for hard working, dedicated, and disciplined individuals who need a flexible academic schedule to pursue higher education.

It's important to me that a school is accredited. I am not going to invest the time, effort, or money required to earn a regionally accredited degree unless it is something to be proud of. Furthermore, I was impressed that Bellevue University was one of the first to offer online graduate programs."
