The Michigan Tech Graduate School collects all student applications. Visit their How to Apply page when you're ready to proceed with the application process.
All students applying to graduate programs in the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science must submit the following materials to the graduate program director. (Mailing address)
- GRE scores. Desirable scores are 500 verbal and 500 quantitative. However, admission decisions consider all application materials.
- Personal résumé
- Description. List the name(s) of desired faculty advisor(s), program, and description of your anticipated area of study and research interest—one to two pages. (Not applicable to Peace Corps/MI and Master of Forestry students)
- Three letters of recommendation. These can be requested electronically through your Husky Hub account, once your application has been processed. You may also use the paper form.
Applications will be accepted throughout the year. However, applications for fall enrollment should be completed by late February. Apply at least a semester in advance to improve your chances of receiving funding.
All applications are reviewed on an individual basis using a holistic approach. However, your application cannot be reviewed until all materials required by both the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science and the Michigan Tech Graduate School have been received. The Graduate School will notify applicants of the admission decision. Students may track the status of their application on Husky Hub.
To be considered for admission to the Graduate School as a degree- or certificate-seeking student, the applicant must be:
- the recipient of a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited institution (graduates of a 3-year bachelor's program may be required to take additional courses prior to beginning graduate studies);
- adequately prepared for advanced study in the chosen field of specialization as demonstrated by the previous program of study and the scholastic record; and
- recommended for admission by the head of the program or concentration.
Graduate School Admission Requirements
All eligible students must submit to the Graduate School:
- Application (Online or Paper)

Students can view all of their required documents (including additional program-required documents) and track the status of their application(s) on their personalized MyMichiganTech website after they have applied. In addition, students can upload any missing documents, request electronic letters of recommendation, and verify their contact information on their MyMichiganTech website.
