About 200 students who take courses from Blackhawk Technical College in Beloit will have to travel to BTC’s central campus starting Monday.


Classes were shifted because of problems related to flooding at the Beloit site, according to a BTC news release. The release does not specify what those problems are.


The problems are at the Beloit Learning Center, 444 East Grand Ave.


Students affected are in General Education Diploma (GED), High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.


"These programs expect to move back to a new location in Beloit sometime in 2009," according to the news release.


The central campus at 6004 S. County G, Janesville, is about 7 miles north of the Beloit site.


Currently enrolled students and new students wishing to enroll are asked to register in Room 2218 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 5-7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The classes are free.


"Consideration will be given to those participants with special needs or those needing assistance with transportation as a result of the move," according to the release.
