Transfer Information


Please note that if you are sending an official BMCC transcript to another college or university, the transcript needs to be sent directly to the receiving school. Students cannot send the transcript to themselves and forward it onto the receiving school as it will not be considered official.

Existing Students and alumni: You can order an official transcript of your academic record from Bay Mills Community College and have it delivered electronically to an authorized individual or organization.  Please click here to order a transcript from our partner  The cost is approximately $10, depending on the delivery option you choose. If you choose to have it sent to a personal email, please be aware that you must download the transcript within 14 days of receiving the email otherwise it expires.

Dual enrolled high school students that no longer attend BMCC and have since graduated from high school, must have their official high school transcript with the graduation date sent to BMCC before transcript requests can be processed.

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.

Bay Mills Community College is a signatory to the Michigan Transfer Agreement.  This agreement is designed to facilitate transfer from community colleges to baccalaureate colleges and universities in Michigan.  The agreement provides for transferability of up to 30 semester credits to meet many (in some cases all) of the General Education Requirements at participating Michigan four-year colleges and universities.  

To fulfill the Michigan Transfer Agreement, students must successfully complete at least 30 credits with at least a 2.0 in each course. These credits, which will be certified by a Michigan community college, should be met according to the following distribution:

  • 1 course in English Composition
  • A second course in English Composition or 1 course in Communications
  • 1 course in Mathematics
    • Course options include: College Algebra, Analytic Trigonometry and Statistical Methods  
  • 2 courses in Social Sciences
    • Courses must be taken in more than one academic discipline
    • Course options may include but are not limited to the following:  Economics, Corrections, Education, Geography, History, Native American Studies, Psychology, Political Science and Sociology
  • 2 courses in Humanities and Fine Arts
    • Courses must be taken in more than one academic discipline and may not include studio and performance courses
    • Course options may include but are not limited to the following:  Art, Ojibwe Language, History, Literature, Music and Native American Studies
  • 2 courses in Natural Sciences
    • Courses must be taken in more than one academic discipline and include at least one laboratory experience
    • Course options may include but are not limited to the following:  Biology, Chemistry, Natural Science and Physics

Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors to select the appropriate courses that fulfill the Michigan Transfer Agreement requirements.

Bay Mills Community College will accept transfer credits from other accredited institutions within the following guidelines:

  • An evaluation will only be conducted from an official transcript.  An official transcript bears the appropriate signatures and seals and can be mailed directly from the issuing institution to BMCC, or sent as an etranscript through
  • 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 three 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 five years old will be accepted only with the student’s successful completion of a departmental exam.
  • Mathematics courses taken by students transferring in or returning to BMCC will be accepted and correlated to a BMCC course according to content by the Office of the Registrar. Students with mathematics credit who wish to pursue further mathematics courses at BMCC may do so if their pre-requisite courses are not more than three years old. If the student’s mathematics pre-requisite courses are more than three years old, the student must take the departmental exam or the BMCC mathematics placement exam to determine eligibility for prospective mathematics course enrollment. Students with mathematics credit three years or older are recommended to meet with the Department Chair for mathematics for advisement.
  • 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.

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.
