Congratulations on your graduation!
For 2021, Black Hawk College will host a virtual commencement ceremony celebrating all graduating students from both campuses. The ceremony will premiere Friday, May 21 at 7 p.m. and will be available to view later as well.
Though we will not be able to hold in-person ceremonies in May, we are committed to celebrating the accomplishments of our graduates.
All graduates must complete the Black Hawk College Graduation Application. Financial obligations to BHC must be fulfilled before your diploma or transcripts will be issued.

*due Friday, March 19, 2021
Diplomas will be mailed to spring graduates approximately 6-8 weeks after the last date of the term in which academic work was completed.
The graduation date for summer candidates is in July. However, certain programs have a completion date in August and in these cases, the last date of academic work will be used as students’ graduation date. Students with degree completion dates after the start of the fall semester will have graduation dates in December.
