How to Apply

Go ahead, apply—it’s free! Michigan Tech gets applications from crazy smart students across the country and around the world. We'd love for you to be one of them.

Here’s what we’ll need from you:

First-Year Students

You are a first-year student if you have not yet graduated from high school or earned a GED. Even if you took college courses while enrolled in high school, you are considered a first-year student.

  1. Application for Admission: Our free application is available online. You will use the Undergraduate—Domestic and International application.
  2. Official SAT and/or ACT Test Scores: Our SAT code is 1464; ACT code is 2030. Michigan Tech accepts SAT or ACT scores and has no preference to which scores students submit; students receive equal consideration for admission and merit-based scholarships with either set of scores.
  3. Official High School Transcript: Have your counselor send us an official copy of your transcript or request to have your transcript sent to us through a service such as Parchment. Your transcript must show grades through your junior year.
  4. Supplemental Information (Optional): If you’d like your counselor to share information with us regarding your high school academic performance, print the High School Counselor Information page and have them submit it directly to our Admissions Office. If you choose to send any letters of recommendation or additional materials, they will be reviewed along with your application.
  5. Students Majoring in Visual and Performing Arts: You will need to submit additional application materials including essay responses and, for some majors, examples of creative work.

Transfer Students

You are a transfer student if you graduated from high school AND took at least one college course following high school graduation (even if you did not complete the course or received a grade that did not demonstrate your best work).

  1. Application for Admission: Our free application is available online. You will use the Undergraduate—Domestic and International application. Be sure to list all colleges you took courses at in the College Information section.
  2. Official College Transcript(s): Have your official college transcript(s) sent directly to the Admissions Office from the college(s) you attended.
  3. Official High School Transcript: If you have not earned an associate’s degree or higher at the time of application, please submit an official copy of your high school transcript. If you have earned an associate’s degree or higher at the time of application, you can skip this step.
  4. Students Majoring in Visual and Performing Arts: You will need to submit additional application materials including essay responses and, for some majors, examples of creative work.
