Welcome to Black Hawk College! Submitting an application for admission is the first step to enrolling at BHC.
If you’re enrolling for the first time or are returning to BHC after an absence longer than two years, then you must submit an application for admission. We recommend applying at least one week prior to taking your placement test or registering for classes.
You must have a U.S. Social Security number in order to complete the online admissions application. Black Hawk College will use your Social Security Number only in accordance with federal and state reporting requirements.

We have an “open door” admission policy which gives people who can benefit from our programs and courses access to higher education.
The policy includes the following:
- High school graduates, those with a GED certificates, or those who demonstrate college readiness
- Anyone 18 years of age or older
- Transfer students from other colleges and universities
Students under the age of 18 may qualify for Early Entry or dual enrollment.
Your online application will be processed in approximately two business days, and then you will receive a welcome letter in the mail containing critical identification information. Check out the registration checklist for the other steps to enrollment.
