One Stop Admissions/Tech Exploration Days

High school students and adults who are interested in the wide array of programs Blackhawk Technical College offers are encouraged to investigate one of the 11 admission’s events being offered by BTC starting Oct. 17 and running through Nov. 4.

In addition to the Tech Exploration Days, BTC will also host its One Stop Admissions event on Saturday, October 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the Central Campus in Janesville (6004 Hwy G).  Attendees of the One Stop event must register in advance by calling 608-743-4463 or emailing klange5@blackhawk.edu.  The One Stop Admissions outing is an opportunity for prospective students to complete their application and financial aid process, take the Accuplacer test and speak with admissions staff about their program interests, all within a few hours.  Students who reserve a position for the event will be contacted by BTC personnel and advised of necessary material they will need for the event, such as high school transcripts and financial information.

The Tech Exploration Days programs will be featured at five BTC campuses including the Central Campus (6004 Hwy G, Janesville), the Center for Transportation Studies (1740 W.

Tech Exploration Days introduce prospective students to the hands-on education BTC students receive on a daily basis.
