Articulation agreements are intended to provide students with more educational options and to remove barriers between community colleges and universities.  An articulation agreement, or transfer agreement, is an agreed upon plan between two institutions for credit to be granted from one college to move into a 4-year program at another. By following the transfer agreement plan, in most cases, students can take at least half of the required credits toward a Bachelor's degree at Bay Mills Community College and bring those credits with them to their destination institution where they can earn a 4-year degree.

BMCC has developed articulation agreements with several colleges and universities that offer Bachelor's degrees and more.  Following is a list of these articulation agreements. Please note that when you are following a transfer agreement, it is very important to work closely with an advisor at BMCC and at the institution where you intend to transfer.
