Getting into Baker College
Reviewing the basic requirements.
Students who have earned a high school diploma or its equivalent, such as a General Education Development (GED) certificate, are eligible to apply.
We look at more than just test scores and GPAs.
As a test-optional college, we don’t require SAT or ACT scores for admissions. Additionally, we know COVID-19 has impacted students in a variety of ways. Baker College uses a comprehensive application review, meaning we look at you as a whole person with more to offer than a grade point average.
All the ways to save on your education.
You’ve got big dreams for your future, and we’re here to help you bring them to life. That’s why we offer a wide variety of scholarships and financial aid opportunities.
From merit-based awards to special scholarships for students in our direct-admission programs, you’ll find no shortage of ways to make your academic journey as affordable as possible.
The BakerProud Community
We’re here for you.
Baker College’s low tuition is the result of our priorities. As a not-for-profit institution, our number one goal is to make sure there is no stopping you from getting a good education. Instead of turning over profits to shareholders, we invest in industry-standard equipment for our classrooms and labs; in a quality faculty and sophisticated teaching technology; and in free tutoring and lifetime career services.
Your home away from home.
Students who plan to attend Baker College full time in Cadillac, Muskegon, Owosso, or Port Huron have the option to live in BC housing. Our affordable housing options are spacious and modern, and include residence hall suites, apartments, and townhouses.
Life outside the classroom.
We know there’s more to college than homework and exams. That’s why we have more than 24 student clubs and organizations to get you involved in the community. There are plenty of clubs, including the Honor Society, Yoga/Fitness Club, and the Student Life Leadership Council, just to name a few.
