                                                                    Welcome to Bellevue College




                                        Become Exceptional at BC!
                                            Welcome! This is a particularly exciting time in the history of our college. In
                                        April we officially changed our name to Bellevue College. We dropped “Commu-
                                        nity” from our name, but our commitment to serve our community, our mission
                                        to support the excellence of all of our students, and our dedication to an open-
                                        door admission policy remain just as strong.
                                         Why did we change our name? Since we are now offering four-year degrees,
                                      and hope to develop more in the future, Bellevue College more accurately
conveys BC’s place in the higher-education world. The first students in our bachelor of applied science (BAS) degree
program in radiation and imaging sciences graduated in June. In addition to our bachelor’s degree program, Eastern
Washington University offers bachelor’s degrees in several fields right on our campus.
    Students who want to complete their first two years of college at a community college still comprise the vast majority
of our students and remain our primary focus. Whether your goal is to transfer to a university, launch a career by acquir-
ing a professional or technical degree or certificate, update your current job skills or simply enrich your life and pursue
your interests, Bellevue College is a phenomenal place to help you Become Exceptional.
   Another cause for excitement is the opening of our new $34 million “S Building,” the eleventh instructional facility on
our 96-acre main campus. The three-story, 64,000 square-foot facility houses BC’s Life Sciences and Chemistry programs,
and provides space for classes in chemistry, biology, microbiology, oceanography and marine biology in its five high-tech
classrooms and 16 advanced laboratories, including DNA-sequencer and scanning-electron-microscope labs.
    Our staff and faculty are committed to your success. Our dedicated instructors are here specifically because they want
to teach, not publish or do research. Our small classes and low teacher-to-student ratio make it easy for you to get to know
your instructors and other students and receive individual assistance. Plus, we offer comprehensive services to support
you with everything from tutoring to academic advising, career planning, internships, and special assistance for students
with disabilities and those who are from low-income homes or are the first in their families ever to go to college.
   BC offers a rich college life both in and outside the classroom. With more than 60 student organizations, students
have many opportunities to build leadership skills and develop student-to-student connections. Choices run the gamut,
from working on the student newspaper to singing with our nationally renowned jazz group, performing in our drama
and dance ensembles to playing a varsity sport.
    Learning comes alive at Bellevue College through a host of exceptional learning environments, such as our plan-
etarium with 3-D animation that allows you to walk the surface of Mars virtually. Here you can pursue your passion
– or discover your passion – through our rich mix of programs and classes, exceptional instructors, outstanding speakers,
and numerous campus activities.
   Join us and let us help you fulfill your goals and Become Exceptional.
                                                                                Sincerely,




                                                                                Jean Floten
