Black Hawk College’s Dual Credit, Dual Enrollment and Articulated Credit programs give you a chance to earn college credit for free, at a reduced rate or at BHC’s regular tuition while you are still in high school. This could help you complete college sooner or earn a double major in a shorter amount of time. Students must be at least 16 years old or have completed the sophomore year of high school to be eligible. In addition students must have demonstrated the ability and maturity necessary to succeed in college-level courses.
There are three options:
Dual Credit: Courses held at the high school, credit given for high school graduation and college. Credits appear on your Black Hawk College transcript, and you can use them toward Black Hawk College programs or transfer to other colleges or universities.
Dual Enrollment: Courses held at Black Hawk College and credit given for college only. Credits appear on your Black Hawk College transcript, and you can use them at Black Hawk College or transfer them to other colleges or universities.
Articulated Credit: Courses held at the high school or the Area Career Center in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. You get college credit if you earn a grade of an A or B and enroll at Black Hawk College. Articulated credits meet the requirements for Black Hawk College career programs and are put on your Black Hawk College transcript at your request.
