Apply for Housing
4. Complete and submit your residence hall application through MyMichiganTech after your enrollment deposit has been received (see Step 2).
- Priority is given to students that find a match using Roommate Matching* (in order of the date and time matched in the system). *Open for fall applicants beginning May 1, 2020.
- After all students who used Roommate Matching are placed into housing, assignments are determined by the date the application is received.
- Transfer students enrolling for fall who wish to live in the residence halls must submit their housing application by March 1.
All single students, other than transfer students (those who have graduated from high school and taken college classes following high school graduation) or commuting students living with a parent/guardian, must live on campus during their first year at the University. Students receiving merit-based scholarships through the Presidential Scholar, National Scholar, or Leading Scholar programs are required to live in University housing for their first two academic years.
Daniell Heights Apartments offer on-campus living options for upper division and graduate students. See Residence Education and Housing Services for information and application details.
Transfer students interested in off-campus living can view a list of available properties at Michigan Tech Off Campus Housing.
- Update your mailing address or phone number.
- Change your major from the program you selected at time of application.
- Decline your acceptance—your notification will cancel your application, refund your $100 enrollment deposit (if paid prior to May 1), and cancel your housing application (if applicable). Any scholarships or financial aid awarded to you will also be canceled. In addition, you will stop receiving notifications and reminders from the University.

An official final transcript is required within 30 days of your high school graduation. Your final transcript will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee to verify continued academic success during the period after that covered by the transcript used at the time of your acceptance to Michigan Tech. If you experienced a departure from your previous academic performance, you will be contacted and asked to provide a detailed explanation. A significant decline in academic performance during your senior year may affect your enrollment status and, at the University's discretion, result in a revocation of your admission and any financial assistance awarded.
To be considered official, a transcript must be sent directly to Michigan Tech by the institution issuing the transcript, or from a transcript service such as Parchment. Transcripts stamped "issued to student" or those hand delivered, even if in a sealed envelope, are not acceptable.
