New partnership for Black Hawk College

A local college is teaming up with the University of Illinois Springfield to make transfers easier.

The new partnership with Black Hawk College in Moline will allow students to move all of their credits to the school seamlessly. And even though it's only for select majors, school officials say it will save students time and money.

But they also say students must do one thing before taking advantage of the program.

"The best thing that any student can do is check with out advisors and schedule and appointment," said Dr. Bettie Truitt of Black Hawk College. "The advisors here will make sure they're enrolled in the particular curriculum that's appropriate for them and get them on the right educational pathway from day one."

Another partnership perk, students will also be invited to participate in UIS campus life and activities while still at Black Hawk.

The partnership was reported by WHBF-TV on October 11, 2013.
