The Graduate School at Michigan Tech is recognized worldwide as a leading public research university known for innovative education and research amidst the breathtaking scenery and abundant recreational opportunities in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, on the shores of Lake Superior. We offer more than 70 graduate degree programs including PhDs, master's, professional certificates, and online options. With students from all 50 states and more than 60 nations, our waterfront campus is a vibrant, multicultural community.

We make creativity, productivity, and discovery happen. For more than 125 years our graduate students have been learning by experimenting and solving problems. Students work in small class sizes in close contact with faculty from across campus. We invite you to see why our graduate school is like no other.

Important notice regarding Graduate School operations.


On Sunday, July 17th, Houghton County experienced extreme weather resulting in damage to a number of buildings in the area, including the Administration Building where the Graduate School is housed. The Graduate School staff will therefore not be in their offices for an undetermined amount of time.

To meet with a Graduate School staff member, visit room 112 in the Van Pelt and Opie Library. For more information about contacting the Graduate School, submitting student forms, or other issues, please see the related blog post. Thank you for your patience during this time.
