Below you will find instructions, requirements and information to help you complete an application to BMCC whether you plan to attend on campus, online, or as a dual enrolled student. If you are ready to apply now, click the button.

New On Campus Students

New students may apply online but to officially register for on campus classes, students must meet with an on campus advisor and complete the registration packet check list.  While it is convenient to register for courses online, the role of the advisors is to make sure students are taking the appropriate courses and have met the pre-requisites and co-requisites associated with these courses.  Until there is a completed on campus registration check list and current application for you on file, you will not be registered for on campus classes.

1. Apply to BMCC: Click here to Fill out an Application  (You will also have the opportunity to fill out the online application once on campus.)

2. When the application is completed you will receive an acknowledgement email from admissions. Note: If you have not received a response to your application, please check your Junk/Spam folder. Many email providers send responses into those folders. A formal BMCC acceptance letter will be sent via U.S. mail.

3. Potential students should Request an Official Transcript from their High School and/or College Transcripts if you have earned college credits or a college degree. Have the Transcripts sent to:

Bay Mills Community College
ATTN: Admissions
12214 West Lakeshore Drive
Brimley MI 49715

4. Bay Mills Community College will accept transfer credits from other accredited institutions within certain guidelines. Check with the Registrar to see what classes are accepted by BMCC. 

5. At this point, potential students will need to visit the BMCC campus to complete the registration process.

6. Please bring your picture I.D. and Tribal I.D. if applicable. 

  • Once on campus, you will be required to take a placement test in the BMCC Library. The test is untimed, but generally takes about two hours, so we suggest coming in at least two hours before the library closes in order to give yourself enough time to finish the test. The library’s hours are as follows:

Summer  (May – August)
Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM

Fall and Spring (Sept. – April)
Monday – Thursday  8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Friday                        8:00 AM – 4:30 PM
Saturday                   10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

     *If you are taking your placement test towards the end of the day please note that you may have to return to campus the next business day to finish the registration process. More information about the Placement test can be found here.

New Online Students

Online courses provide the convenience of instruction that allows students to study from their own location and on their own schedule. Students may complete individual online courses or complete Associate of Arts degrees in either Early Childhood Education or Business Administration or complete a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. Course work may include weekly online discussions, readings, and individual or group assignments. As in face-to-face courses, instructors require students to demonstrate mastery of subject area through exams, course projects, and research papers.  To learn more about Online learning click here.

Application, registration, financial aid, textbook ordering, and advisement are completed online. There is an Academic Manager for Online Learning, Kendra Mills (, who acts as liaison between students and faculty when needed.
