How to Transfer

There’s more than one way to transfer, and that’s good news for you! Choose the transfer approach that fits you best. As you decide where to transfer, we can help you investigate majors, admission requirements and more.

EARN AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE FIRST

Complete an associate degree and arrive at your next stop prepared for junior-level coursework. Benefit from course equivalency agreements Black Hawk College has negotiated with four-year colleges and universities. We can help you select courses that meet the general education and freshman/sophomore-level courses for your major at your transfer school.

TRANSFER BEFORE COMPLETING A DEGREE

If you don’t plan to remain at Black Hawk College long enough to complete an associate degree, consider completing the Illinois Articulation Initiative General Education Core Curriculum. The IAI GECC is a set of general education courses that meet the lower-division general education requirements at more than 100 public and private two-year and four-year colleges and universities in Illinois.

 TAKE SELECTED COURSES REQUIRED BY YOUR TRANSFER SCHOOL

Regardless of how long you plan to attend Black Hawk College, your best approach may be to select courses equivalent to major and general education courses at your transfer college or university. This is useful when you have a specialized major, choose a non-IAI participating school, or plan to transfer beyond Illinois. Be sure to collaborate carefully with your BHC advisor and an advisor in your major department at your transfer school.
