The Orientation Program is designed to enhance students’ transition to, connection with, and understanding of Black Hawk College’s community. Our mission is to empower students to develop holistically by building a foundation for their successes through the orientation program.
Online orientation introduces students to programs of study and educational planning, support services, and college processes and procedures. Online orientations are completed any time during students’ enrollment process. Attend your virtual orientation by logging into your myBlackHawk student account and clicking on the orientation tab.
On-campus orientations provide students the opportunity to develop a sense of community through peer networking, introducing students to engagement opportunities both inside and outside the classroom, and detailing strategies for a successful transition to the college environment. On-campus orientations are typically hosted the week before to the start of each academic semester. Registration for the on-campus session of your choice is located below.
