Course Scheduling

Students should refer to the academic plan that was created with an Academic Advisor during their Advising, Registration and Orientation (ARO) session. Following an academic plan will help keep students on track for program completion. Students should speak to their assigned Academic Advisor if they have questions about their academic plan or course schedule.

Blackhawk offers flexible education at various locations and times in an effort to better meet students' needs. When registering for classes, students should take note of the times, location and method of delivery for the classes.

Flexible Learning

Blackhawk provides courses in alternative delivery formats:

MyEdChoice

This option allows you to choose how you attend each class and does not lock you into one format. In a MyEdChoice class, you have the option to attend:

  • in the classroom at a set class time,
  • live during class time using video conferencing, or
  • online at anytime

You can mix and match how you attend class or pick the option that works best for you. It's your choice.

FlexLab
This option allows you to attend when it is most convenient for you, within the designated open lab hours. The non-lab instructional content is delivered face-to-face.

Hybrid
Your course content is delivered in a blend of face-to-face and online classes. Because 40 to 60 percent of the content is delivered online, you will need access to a computer with a high-speed internet connection.

Online

The entire course is delivered online, although proctored testing and assessment may be required. Because these courses are 100 percent online, you will need regular access to a computer with a high-speed internet connection.

Traditional

These courses typically meet several times a week over the course of a semester. Instructors meet face-to-face with students in a traditional classroom or laboratory setting.

FlexLab Hybrid
The lab times are flexible times but must be done at the specified campus during lab hours. The non-lab instructional content is delivered online.
