I graduated from BHC in 2014 after 3 years (my music degree took forever!). I was able to complete over 100 credit hours at an incredibly affordable tuition rate. There are many scholarships you can apply for to assist as well! After the amount of education I received, I left with an associates degree and NO DEBT.

For the most part, the staff is friendly and helpful. The majority of the teachers I had were passionate about their jobs, and it showed in every class. Some of them weren't as great, but you will get that anywhere else you attend. Every person is different, and that extends to teachers as well.

I am currently attending Black Hawk College as the first step in my journey of becoming a secondary education teacher. So far, I have had an amazing experience! I am visually impaired and have found that Black Hawk has an amazing disability services center. They are always ready to help and make setting up class accommodations very simple. I am also a part of Black Hawk's transfer program and it is incredible. My Trio adviser makes sure that the classes I take benefit both my degree and transfer over to the university I am hoping to attend. Overall it has been a great experiece starting at Black Hawk. The staff is so helpful and friendly.
After going to a small high school, BHC made the transition to college so easy! The smaller campus and class sizes wasn't overwhelming and the staff was there to help you with any questions. As a former student, and current teacher, I recommend BHC to all of my high school students unsure of where to attend college.
