Students who intend to transfer to a four-year college or university should meet with their academic advisor to select courses appropriate for their major at a specific four-year college or university. Students who are undecided about their major or whose goals cannot be readily fulfilled by one of the other curricula outlined in this catalog should follow one of the curriculum model on this page. This suggested model provides a guideline for scheduling courses to receive an Associate in Arts degree or an Associate in Science degree at Black Hawk College.

The first two years of a baccalaureate degree at a four-year college or university are devoted primarily to general education courses. Usually a small number of introductory courses for a specific major are taken during the first two years. Academic advisors work closely with students and the four-year colleges and universities to assure that suitable courses are scheduled.
