School Notes:

Bay College has grown from a modest beginning with a limited curriculum in 1963 to serving an enrollment of more than 2,300 students in the fall of 2005. Bay College also opened a new West Campus located in Iron Mountain in the fall of 2007. Partnerships with various four-year schools allow students to continue taking classes on the Escanaba campus and to gain a baccalaureate degree without leaving town. In addition to these partnerships, Bay College continues its traditional occupational programs aimed at giving students the skills to enter the work force, community service, and transfer programs. These transfer programs are designed to allow students to begin their post-secondary education and explore career interests at Bay College, later applying their two-year degree program at a major college or university. Bay College has a strong history of dedicating itself to offering academically excellent and affordable public education in our region. The college prepares students to be continuous learners who succeed upon transfer, work effectively in the contemporary workplace, and function as citizens and leaders in their communities. The College is accredited by the Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
