About our partnership
Michigan State University (MSU) and Bay College have partnered to offer regionally relevant agricultural training programs for careers in some of Michigan's highest demand industries. Students will benefit from dual enrollment at both institutions with all courses delivered in Escanaba on the campus of Bay College.
This partnership allows students to earn a certificate from the MSU Institute of Agricultural Technology (IAT) and an associate degree from Bay College. Full-time students will be able to complete the associate degree and certificate in just two years and financial aid is available through Michigan State University to help with tuition expenses at both schools.
By working together, MSU and Bay College are able to offer these specialized training programs for high-demand jobs close to home and at a lower overall cost. Graduates will be prepared for rewarding job opportunities in agriculture or transfer to continue their education.
