Join Blue Key

How to Become a Blue Key Member

Each spring Blue Key inducts a class of around 25 students to become members. Membership lasts for at least two years. In order to be considered for membership candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a 3.0 or higher GPA,
  • Be a full-time student with sophomore or junior standing.
  • Have at least four semesters remaining at Michigan Tech.

All students meeting the GPA requirements will receive a letter or an email in the spring with information on how to apply. If you meet the criteria and never received a letter you may contact Blue Key at bluekey@mtu.edu for information. Students, after receiving a letter who wish to join, must fill out an application online. Selected applicants will then be invited to an interview with the returning Blue Key members at the end of March. Applicants will then be notified if they were selected to become a member of Blue Key. New members must pay a national Blue Key organization fee of approximately $60 and attend an initiation banquet.
