The Office of the Registrar is committed to serving each student based on his or her individual needs while here at BMCC. The Registrar's Office is responsible for all aspects of student registration and academic records. The office's primary functions include registration, grades processing, transcript processing, custodianship of student records and ensuring compliance with FERPA policy. The Office of the Registrar also examines incoming official transcripts for evaluation of transfer credits. You may contact the office in person, by telephone or email.
Undergraduate students with a cumulative BMCC GPA below 2.0 will be placed on academic probation for the next semester and a probationary statement will be noted in the students’ record. A student will be removed from academic probation when their cumulative grade point average is 2.00 or better.
A student on academic probation must either raise their cumulative grade point average to at least 2.00 the following semester or achieve and maintain a current semester grade point average of 2.00 or better each semester until they are removed from probation.
Dual Enrolled Student Policy
Bay Mills Community College is an established and accredited community college that qualifies to participate in the State of Michigan’s Postsecondary Enrollment Option Act by offering dual enrollment to qualified pupils that are eligible to enroll in postsecondary institutions.
This program is offered during the Fall and Spring semesters. BMCC accepts only students in the 11th and 12th grade with a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.0 and that have been determined eligible by their school district and have met the requirements set forth in the PSEOA. Students will be restricted to a maximum of two courses per semester or not more than 8 credits. It is the responsibility of the school district to ensure the student meets the eligibility criteria including academic readiness, course eligibility and limitations under the PSEOAs section 388.514.
Payment for courses will be the responsibility of the school district which will include tuition and mandatory course fees, materials fees (including textbooks), and registration fees; or an amount equal to the lesser of the amount of the portion of the statewide weighted-average foundation allowance for the student. Other costs will be the responsibility of the student/parent.
The PSEOA does not restrict the ability of an eligible student or any other pupil to enroll in BMCC courses without tuition and fee support; therefore, other students may enroll with the student’s parent/guardian held responsible for payment including those that have been homeschooled, if they meet the requirements found in paragraph two above.

Transfer of Credits
Bay Mills Community College will accept transfer credits from other accredited institutions within the following guidelines:
*Transfer credit evaluations are done upon
request and students must declare a major. Evaluations will be done by
the registrar by providing Official College Transcripts.
Courses completed with a “C” grade (2.0) or higher will be accepted with the exception of certain English and Computer courses. These are addressed in the following two sections.
English Composition courses that are more than five years old will be accepted only upon the student’s successful completion of a departmental exam. Students who have attained a bachelor’s degree are exempt from the departmental exam.
Computer Science courses that are more than three years old will be accepted only with the student’s successful completion of a departmental exam.
Courses which are not equivalent to BMCC courses but are in a discipline may be accepted as elective credits.
Credits, not grades, are transferred for “C” or better courses. Grades from transfer courses are not included when calculating the BMCC cumulative grade point average.
Transfer credits will be shown on the student’s academic record and will be counted when determining satisfactory academic progress for federal financial aid.
Transfer of credit toward any certificate or degree program will be limited to 40 percent of the total number of credit hours for that program.
Course withdrawal is official only upon completion of the Course Withdrawal Form. Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal. No withdrawal will be processed based upon a phone call. To properly withdraw from your courses requires completion of the course Withdrawal Form. Students officially withdrawing from a course after the first ten days of the semester will have their permanent record marked with a "W" for withdrawal.
Grade reports are issued at the end of each semester or session of enrollment. Reports document grades, hours attempted, hours completed, honor points and GPA. Grade reports will not be released to students with outstanding financial obligations to BMCC.
Transfer of Credits to other Institutions
Transfer equivalencies differ from institution to institution. Therefore, students who wish to transfer to another college or university should plan their course of study accordingly. Although students will be assisted by their academic advisors and the Registrar in this process, they must assume responsibility for meeting the requirements of the college or university in which they plan to enroll.
Withdrawal from College
Students discontinuing their studies at Bay Mills Community College during the academic year must complete the official Withdrawal Form. Students leaving college without completing the withdrawal form will receive a grade of "F" for all courses. NOTE: Withdrawal from college, after receiving federal financial aid funding, may have an adverse effect on your future eligibility for funding.
