Admissions Checklist

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 need from you.

  • Official ACT and/or SAT test scores—Our ACT code is 2030; our SAT code is 1464. Transfer students—you can skip this step. Michigan Tech accepts either the ACT or SAT and has no preference to which scores students submit with the application for admissions—students receive equal consideration for admission and merit-based scholarships with either set of scores. There will be no change to our admission practices with the administration of the SAT for state educational assessment purposes.
  • 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. Transfer students who have earned an associate degree or higher at the time of application are not required to submit an official high school transcript.
  • First-year students: 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 office.
  • Transfer students: have your official college transcript(s) sent directly to us from the college(s).

Ready to apply? Apply online now (it's free!) If you want priority consideration for admission, financial aid, and scholarships—and we think you do—submit your application by January 15.
