Apply to Bay Mills Community College

Here you will find instructions, requirements and information to help you complete an application to BMCC.

On Campus Classes

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.


Online Classes

New On Line 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. 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.
