College for High School Students

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 students that have completed at least one semester of high school 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.
