Do I need to apply to both Bellin College and the other institution where I intend to take my general education courses?

Yes, applications need to be submitted to both colleges. We require dual enrollment, which means that acceptance to Bellin College is contingent upon your acceptance into another institution where your general education courses will be fulfilled. Collaborative agreements exist between University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (UWGB), St. Norbert College (SNC), the
University of Wisconsin Colleges, and Silver Lake College.

What degree will I earn and from what college?

Upon completion of Bellin College’s programs, students will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences, or a Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography granted by Bellin College.
