Future First-Year Students

First-year students are those who have never been enrolled in college full time and are completing or have recently completed high school or earned their GED. Even if you completed college level courses while in high school or are part of an early/middle college program, you’re considered a first-year student.

Michigan Tech gets applications from across the country and around the world. We'd love for yours to be among them. Go ahead, apply. It’s free, easy, and online.

How to Apply

  1. Application for Admission: Our free first-year application is available online
  2. Official SAT and/or ACT Test Scores: Our SAT code is 1464; ACT code is 2030. Michigan Tech accepts SAT or ACT scores and has no preference to which scores students submit; students receive equal consideration for admission and merit-based scholarships with either set of scores.
  3. 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.
  4. Supplemental Information (Optional): If you'd like your counselor to share information with us regarding your high school academic performance, print the High School Counselor Information page and have them submit it directly to our Admissions Office. You can also use this page 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.
  5. Students Majoring in Visual and Performing Arts: You may need to submit additional application materials including essay responses and, for some majors, examples of creative work.
