Earning a Bachelor's Degree Locally Just Got Easier

Cerro Coso and Bellevue University have created a partnership to help students earn a bachelor's degree locally. Now students don't have to leave the area to continue their education. Bellevue's online accelerated degree programs can be completed in as little as 18 months. Students who have graduated from Cerro Coso will get credit for what they have completed, starting with more credits and allowing them to finish their bachelor's degree sooner.

Bellevue University offers over 50 career-related bachelor's degrees in an online format that line up well with Cerro Coso's offerings, and students can utilize the library and computer labs at the college as part of the partnership. Interested students can meet with outreach and recruitment specialist Veronica Chavez in her office located on the Ridgecrest Campus in Modular 7.

Founded in 1966, Bellevue University is a private, non-profit, regionally accredited institution located in Bellevue, Nebraska. Cerro Coso's partnership with the university starts with recruiting students to complete their two year degrees with the college and then transitioning them to Bellevue for their Bachelor's and Master's degrees. Bellevue offers many financial perks to Cerro Coso students and employees. A determined mind and a strong will bear endless possibilities!
