Admissions Questions

Do I need to submit official documents before my application decision is made?


Decisions can be made with unofficial copies of the required documents. Copies of documents, such as your test score reports or previous transcripts, can be uploaded to your MyMichiganTech.

Your official documents and test scores must be received by the Graduate School if you are accepted to the University in order to complete your enrollment. It is recommended that international students bring their official transcripts and proof of degree(s) to campus with them.

Official ETS (GRE & TOEFL) test scores can be sent directly to Michigan Tech using our School Code: 1464

May I mail my required documents, rather than uploading them?


All materials required for the application process must be uploaded to your MyMichiganTech.

Hardcopies of official transcripts will be reviewed and scanned, but will not be physically retained. Any other mailed documents will not be reviewed and will be shredded / destroyed.

It is highly recommended that international students bring their official transcripts and proof of degree(s) with them to campus. These official documents are required to complete enrollment after being admitted.

How do I apply for funding?

Your application for admission also serves as your application for funding. Graduate assistantships are available for each of our graduate programs.

You should follow up with your Graduate Program Director and/or a faculty member if you have additional questions about the availability of funding.

How do I know if my application is under review? What is my application status?

You can check the status of your application on your MyMichiganTech. Your application status will always be updated here first.

Definitions of our most frequently used status codes follow:

Incomplete items outstanding Additional items required to complete departmental review Complete—Awaiting Program Decision Accepted Grad Accept—Pending Financials Admission Denied

When will I receive my admissions decision?

All application decisions are made by the program of study. The time frame for a decision varies among programs, as some programs make decisions by committee review.

If you have further questions about a program's timeline for application decisions, you can contact your Graduate Program Director.
