First-year students are those who have completed their junior year of high school or have graduated from high school or earned their GED (or other high school equivalency), and have not taken college classes following high school graduation. If you completed college courses while in high school or are part of an early/middle college program, you’re considered a first-year student.

How to Apply

  1. Application for Admission: Use our first-year application or apply with the Common App. Please only fill out one form of application.
  2. Official High School Transcript: Have your counselor send us an official copy of your transcript or request to have your transcript sent to us through a service such as Parchment. Your transcript must show grades through your junior year.
  3. Official SAT and/or ACT Test Scores (Optional): Students applying for fall 2024 admission do not need to submit test scores, unless their GPA is below a 3.00. If you would like to submit your SAT or ACT, we will only utilize scores if it strengthens your application. Our SAT code is 1464; ACT code is 2030. 
  4. Supplemental Information (Optional): If you'd like your counselor to share information with us regarding your high school academic performance, send them our High School Counselor Information form and have them submit it. You can also use this form to have your test scores sent to Michigan Tech at no cost to you. If you choose to send any letters of recommendation or additional materials, they will be reviewed along with your application.
