Black Hawk College’s Dual Credit program gives you a chance to earn college credit at a reduced rate or at BHC’s regular tuition while you are still in high school. Dual credit classes help you complete college sooner and reduce the cost of obtaining a college certificate or degree. High school juniors or seniors who meet college placement requirements are eligible. In addition, students must have demonstrated the ability and maturity necessary to succeed in college-level courses.
There are three options:
Dual Credit Courses are held at the high school. Upon successful completion of the course, college and high school credit is awarded to the student. Credits appear on your Black Hawk College transcript and you can use them toward Black Hawk College programs or transfer the credits to other colleges or universities.
Dual Enrollment Courses are held at Black Hawk College. Only college credit is awarded to the student. Credits appear on your Black Hawk College transcript and you can use them at Black Hawk College or transfer them to other colleges or universities.
Articulated Credit Courses are Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses held at the Area Career Center or at the high school. You receive college credit if you earn an A or B in the class and enroll at Black Hawk College. Articulated credits meet the requirements for Black Hawk College career programs and are put on your Black Hawk College transcript at your request.
