Weather-Related School Closings

The College may need to close its buildings because of inclement weather or emergencies. When this occurs, a college-wide communication is sent to all Blackhawk students via  SAFE Alert, which is an emergency notification system. You can determine how you'd like to receive these alerts - text, email, voice - by logging into the SAFE Alert system (also called InformaCast).

Information about campus closures is posted at and on the College's Facebook page. Students are encouraged to check Blackboard for possible announcements and course-specific communication from instructors. 

We make every effort to notify area radio and TV stations by 6 a.m. for daytime classes and by 3 p.m. for evening classes.

Please Note: Blackhawk is listed as Blackhawk Technical College NOT Blackhawk Schools or Black Hawk College.
