Bay College is your community college. The experienced faculty, staff and administration at Bay College are all committed to your success and the success of our surrounding communities.

We are excited that you are considering or better yet, already attending or involved with Bay College. We look forward to providing an environment that helps you build a firm foundation that fulfills your current educational and training goals. Knowing we have made a difference in a student’s life is our greatest reward.

In today’s workplace, job skills are the key to success. In fact, many degree-holding students return to Bay College in order to update skills or obtain new skills for career changes. Bay College provides programs that will help you develop the job skills that you will need to enter the workforce, as well as programs that provide transferable credits, which will prepare you for further study at a baccalaureate institution.

Bay College serves students. We have an active student life program, a student-centered student services department, access through low tuition and campuses in Escanaba and Iron Mountain, on-line programs, innovative educational opportunities, as well as access to four-year degrees through partnerships with Lake Superior State University, Northern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Michigan Technological University and many others.
Bay College is a great place to get an education and expand your horizons! We welcome you to our campus.
