Advising Resources

Degree Audit
Did you know that you can use Degree Audit software to:

• Determine classes needed to complete BHC degrees or certificates
• Research classes needed for other majors by using the interactive “what-if” feature
• Plan your classes semester by semester

Degree Audit is available to students currently enrolled at BHC or who’ve earned prior credits at BHC. Log into myBlackHawk. You will find Degree Audit under the Student tab. Use this tool throughout your student career to see your progress toward your degree.

Meeting with your academic advisor each semester is still recommended.

Black Hawk courses with grades of W, X, I, or P; developmental courses (course numbers starting with “0”); or courses transferred from other colleges are not included in the GPA so no need to enter them.  Calculator results are unofficial.  For official GPA see myBlackhawk or contact Enrollment Services.
