Campus Reopening and Fall 2020 Plans

Moving Forward

Following the safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Restore Illinois Plan, Black Hawk College continues to be committed to providing students with the best possible learning experience under the circumstances. We believe the steps we are taking will provide the structure necessary for students to achieve their academic goals and the flexibility needed to adapt as circumstances change. The fall semester will look a bit different this year, but we look forward to helping students as always.


  • The Fall 2020 academic calendar will remain unchanged, with classes starting Monday, Aug. 17.
  • Courses will be online except for those that require face-to-face instruction. These classes will be blended, with online lectures and face-to-face labs.
  • Starting Monday, Nov. 30, all courses will be completed online, including finals, for the remainder of the semester.


Access to campus buildings and student services is available, following guidelines. All visitors to campus, including employees and students, must complete a daily screening with temperature check, wear a mask while in any of the college facilities, and meet the requirements in the COVID-19 Screening Notice (PDF). This notice is also posted at building entrances and is subject to change. Students and employees have additional requirements. Please see FAQs.

Daily COVID-19 Screening Tool: Students and employees may utilize this optional online tool on myBlackHawk before arriving at campus for quicker access.
