Registration for Courses
Currently enrolled Blackhawk students are provided priority registration before other students. Registering for classes can be done online or in person. Students are encouraged to register online using the MyBTC portal as course availability is first-come, first served. Newly admitted students are required to attend an Advising and Registration Orientation (ARO) prior to registering for their courses. Students will register for an ARO through a link that is sent to them in their acceptance letter.
Registering is the process of enrolling for specific classes. Students must be registered for all classes they attend. Registration is necessary in order for an official record to properly reflect a student's participation in educational activities.
A student does not have a guaranteed seat in a class unless all fees have been paid or a payment agreement has been established. It is the student's responsibility to keep informed of all registration requirements and procedures. By registering for courses, a student accepts the responsibility for all fees. Non-attendance does not constitute a cancellation of that obligation, nor does it officially withdraw a student from the class.
Continuing students will register for the next semester’s classes before new students. This gives continuing students the first opportunity to enroll in the courses needed to complete program requirements. A registration schedule will be available to provide specific procedures to be followed, including the date and time of registration, estimated cost, and other applicable information. Students are strongly recommended to register on-line by using their MyBTC account.
A student may register if he/she has been previously enrolled (within the last 185 days) or is currently enrolled and has a student identification number and password. To register online, go to http://www.blackhawk.edu. At the top of blackhawk.edu, click on the Online Services pull down from the main navigation, then select MyBTC. Once MyBTC is open, go to the Registration and Courses link to sign up for classes.
A Note to New Students
New students must apply for admission at Blackhawk in order to set up an account to register online. Once an account set up is completed, a student ID number and password is required to activate the online account. This information, along with other important computer service materials, is included within each Blackhawk Acceptance Letter.
In-person registration is available at the Central Campus and Monroe Campus during regular office hours.
