Bay Mills Community College does not accept international students either online or on-campus. The only exception to the rule is for First Nations members from Canada. As American Indians born in Canada, the U.S. government allows them to travel to the U.S. under Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. §1359, without the restrictions imposed on other nationalities.
BMCC was chartered by the Bay Mills Indian Community in 1984 under the regulations promulgated to implement the Tribally Controlled Community College Assistance Act of 1978. A condition of eligibility found in these regulations is that the college must maintain a majority Native American students if in operation more than a year. This severely limits the ability of the college to recruit non-tribal students. BMCC grants preference to those non-tribal students from the Eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan and those employed by any Federally Recognized Tribe.
