Emergency Notification System
Students are encouraged to register their contact information with the college’s 3N Emergency Notification System to receive the most immediate and accurate information about college closings or class cancellations. Black Hawk College requests that students include all contact information that will enable the timely delivery of a voice, text or email message in the event of an emergency. This feature collects contact information for notification of emergencies on an opt-in basis. You may opt-in or opt-out at any time.
To register with the 3N Emergency Notification System, log in to myBlackHawk then click on the Student tab or the Employees tab. Look for the Emergency Notification channel and click to enroll or update contact information.
For more information about the 3N Emergency Notification System, contact the Black Hawk College Police Department at 309-796-5913.
Students also may check the college’s website and the announcements in myBlackHawk to see if classes have been canceled or if the college has closed its facilities. The college will notify local media outlets in the event of a college-wide closing, but information will usually be posted on the home page and myBlackHawk first.
All students are assigned an email account at bhc.edu which becomes the official vehicle for communication from the college. The email account is accessed through myBlackHawk. Be sure to check your mymail.bhc.edu mailbox frequently for important information about your classes and the college.
You can set the mymail.bhc.edu email to be forwarded to other e-mail addresses. Log in to myBlackHawk and click on the “My Mail” icon at the top. Click the gear icon, then choose Settings. Click the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab and enter the email address you would like all messages to be forwarded to. Follow the rest of the instructions and save changes.
