    School Overview

    Black Hawk College was founded in 1946 as Moline Community College, where classes were first held in the local high school for the benefit of World War II veterans. Today, Black Hawk College is a two-year, public community college within the Illinois Community College District that serves nine counties in northwestern Illinois at five locations. In addition to the college’s distance education programs, Black Hawk College offers over 140 programs of study, which include career, certificate, and transfer options. Black Hawk also supports community outreach programs. The school’s mission states: “Black Hawk College enriches the community by providing the environment and educational resources for individuals to become lifelong learners.”

    Distance learning options include: online and hybrid courses, in addition to telecourse delivery, and Interactive Television. Almost all coursework for the associate’s degrees can be completed online. The eLearning environment at Black Hawk typically mirrors that of traditional on-campus counterparts, with structured content, assignments and deadlines, and communications with faculty and peers. Classes are asynchronous, but are not usually self-paced. While most work is completed online, students may need to take proctored exams. Hybrid class environments at Black Hawk operate much like that of online coursework, with the exception that students must also attend face-to-face sessions.
