Southeast Community College and Bellevue University have joined together to make it easier for Nebraska students to earn a four-year degree.

 A ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony was held at SCC’s Lincoln Campus on Thursday, May 12, to dedicate the new Bellevue University office. The office will make it easier for students at SCC to make the transition to the four-year university. The office is located in Room 102 of the U Section on the Lincoln Campus.

SCC President, Dr. Paul Illich, and Bellevue University President, Dr. Mary Hawkins, spoke about what this means for both institutions.

“Bellevue University is proud to celebrate the latest enhancement to our long-standing partnership with Southeast Community College,” Hawkins said. “This new outreach location will enable SCC and Bellevue University to better serve students, faculty and staff, and provide a seamless pathway to help students reach their educational goals.”

Students seeking an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from SCC, or those who take a smaller number of transfer classes at the College, will experience a seamless transition to Bellevue University. BU also accepts credits from students who receive their Associate of Applied Science degree from SCC. Transfer advisors are available to assist students with any questions or concerns during the transfer process. The advisors can be reached via email at academictransfer@southeast.edu.
