Let us help you find out what benefits you’re eligible for and support you as you transition to college life.
After reviewing the benefits requirements, complete the process with Blackhawk's School Certifying Official (SCO).
We offer credit of military occupations and training courses if they are recommended for credit by the American Council of Education (ACE) and if we offer a similar course. The credits earned are for general electives required for an Associate's Degree only. If you have questions about fulfilling major requirements, contact a BTC advisor.

Students who are members of the National Guard or other military reserve units, during times of national or regional crisis, may be called to active duty during the term of their enrollment at Blackhawk Technical College (College). Students who are activated for military service shall have the following options:
Students, previously enrolled at the College, will be guaranteed reenrollment priority upon returning from active duty in accordance with the special admission criterion allowable under Wisconsin Administrative Code TCS 10.07(5m). This opportunity is available to students for up to one year from the time they are released from active duty. Tuition and course fees in effect at the time of reenrollment shall apply. Students desiring to reenroll should notify the College of their intent as soon as possible upon their return to the area, but no later than two weeks prior to the start of the term. Students desiring to reenroll more than one year from the time of release from active duty shall be admitted using the standard admissions process.
The four basic types of financial aid available to students at Blackhawk include grants, scholarships, work-study opportunities, and loans.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) allows you to determine the amount and type(s) of aid you are eligible for. For priority processing, please have your FAFSA completed by April.
