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.
Central Michigan University - Associate of Arts Business Administration
Central Michigan University - Associate of Arts - General Studies, Psychology Concentration
Davenport University – all associate degree programs articulated
Lake Superior State University - Associate of Applied Science - Computer Information Systems
Indiana Wesleyan University - Associate to Bachelor's Degree Programs
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:
Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors to select the appropriate courses that fulfill the Michigan Transfer Agreement requirements.
