Black Hawk College and Augustana College have formed a partnership to offer students a clear path to an affordable, high-quality education close to home.

Black Hawk College has transfer agreements with more than two dozen schools, both big and small, private and public, in the Midwest and beyond. This new partnership with Augustana College will open up even more possibilities for Black Hawk College students.

Students who are interested in transferring to Augustana College to earn a Bachelor of Arts may apply to Augustana at the same time they begin working on their Associate in Arts at Black Hawk College. Each student will have a designated BHC advisor to help them map out their educational plan.

Students also will benefit from the variety of resources available at Black Hawk College, including the Career Services Center, Disability Services, the Hawk’s Cupboard food pantry, the Lane Evans Veterans Resource Center and the Tutoring Center.

Outside the classroom, students can enrich their college experience by participating in the numerous Black Hawk College clubs, organizations, honor societies, athletic teams and judging teams.

BHC students will receive an Augustana student ID card and email address, which will grant them immediate and full access to the Augustana library, library databases, campus facilities, and arts, cultural and sporting events.

With this new partnership, students will enjoy the benefits of attending both schools and heading out into the work world with two degrees from two high-quality institutions.

Black Hawk College now. Augustana College next.
Two degrees. One great opportunity.
