Sample Transfer Plans

Do you intend to transfer after attending Black Hawk College, but have not selected a transfer school? Use a Sample Transfer Plan with an Area of Focus related to your eventual major and work with your advisor each semester to select courses.

Sample Transfer Plans support you to:

  • Discover what kind of courses are frequently needed for your major.
  • Complete an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree before transfer. Effective fall 2020, Black Hawk College’s AA and AS degrees can be completed with 60 credits by reducing elective credits to 23.  Sample Transfer Plans will be updated accordingly.
  • Complete introductory and required pre-requisite courses for your transfer major.
  • Build a strong academic record for transfer admission and scholarship opportunities.

Course and transfer requirements can vary among institutions and may differ from Sample Transfer Plan recommendations, so choosing a transfer school as soon as possible is encouraged. Explore many transfer school and transfer degree options at Transfer Guides and Agreements. Seek advising from Black Hawk College and the transfer school to meet the transfer institution’s requirements
