Bellevue University is a great opportunity. Their tuition is inline with other universities, especially its online programs. I am employed full-time with a family of 4 children. Life is busy and for me attending a brick and mortar only school wasn't an option. I needed to be able to take most of my classes online. I did take 9 hours at the school. Whenever I needed help the professors were easy to get in touch with. All departments were quick to respond to me needs. I might have to wait 24 hrs for a call back, mostly around the beginning a new term. Look around and were their courses seem a little high priced, in the end they are compareble if not cheaper than others. If you can attend all classroom classes, then yes they are about $70 a credit hour more expensive, but for the onlines they are $100 to $200 cheaper then other online programs. As for the text book, they are in most cases custom made for the school, in the 12 classes I took, they always had new and used versions available. My books cost between $45 new to $115 new. That isn't more expensive then other schools. Used prices seemed to run about 60% of the new cost and you could resell them to the school at the end for about 75% of your cost. Roughly new $100 used $60 resell $45. That is pretty cost efficient.

Bellevue University is a very expensive option. They offer great options for military personnel to cash in on their experience, but take full advantage of the government's funding. I was forced to use my VA benefits on top of the government's tuition assistance to afford each class. The books required are hard to find and often wrote by the professors at the university. Expect to pay a fortune at their bookstore. Customer service was wonderful in the beginning. After my halfway point, I noticed customer service was near non-existent. Financial support personnel can't offer much support beyond taking your payment and looking at your account. They are still trying to find out why I was charged twice for a semester from 2009. If you contact them by phone, expect to leave a message and pray for a return call. Email support is not much different. The teachers are wonderful and very flexible, but the students working the various admin support functions make the experience somewhat unbearable.
