Financing Your Michigan Tech Education

Paying for college is a big deal. Financing your education is made possible by four types of funding sources:

  • Scholarships
  • Grants
  • Loans
  • Employment

To be considered for the most opportunities, start by filing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Complete Your FAFSA

To be considered for all University-awarded financial aid, including grants, loans (for students and parents/guardians), work-study employment, and other aid, complete your FAFSA and file online. Our federal school code is 002292. Although your social security number was not required when you applied for admission to Michigan Tech, it is required for FAFSA filing purposes. To avoid delays in processing your FAFSA, please call the Admissions Office at 888-688-1885 to provide your social security number.

File by the due dates listed below for the best opportunities. FAFSAs processed after these dates will receive consideration for remaining aid.

Campus Living

Apply for Housing

All single students, apart from transfer 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 Scholars, National Scholars, or Leading Scholar programs are required to live in University housing for their first two academic years.

Apply early for housing by completing and submitting your residence hall application. The residence hall application is available via MyMichiganTech:

  • Priority is given to students who find a match using Roommate Matching (in order of the date and time matched in the system).
  • After all students who used Roommate Matching are placed into housing, assignments are determined by the date we receive your application.
  • Transfer students enrolling for fall who wish to live in the residence halls must submit their residence hall application by March 1.

Residence Halls

You may choose to live in one of three residence halls. Each has its own game room, kitchenettes, sauna, laundry facility, fitness room, reception desk, lounges, and student and professional staff.

  • Douglass Houghton Hall (DHH), our smallest residence hall, houses about 360 students. This three-story historic building was constructed in the late 1930s and characterizes that time period with its beautiful architectural details.
  • McNair Hall has a great view of the Keweenaw Waterway and consists of three buildings, housing about 600 students.
  • Wadsworth Hall (Wads) is the largest hall—one-quarter-mile long, five stories high, and home to approximately 1,050 students. In addition to a vibrant residence hall community, Wads offers the Campus Café, a convenient place to meet friends, relax away from the books, and enjoy late-night dining and snacking options.

Choose a Roommate (Fall Semester Only)

Once you submit your residence hall application, you will be invited to use Roommate Matching (beginning May 1). Request a roommate you know, or search for the best match. You have until May 31 to enter your roommate choice, but it's best to match as early as possible. If you choose not to use this program, we will assign you a roommate. Please note: Students enrolling for spring or summer semesters are not eligible for Roommate Matching.

 Starting August 1, all students will see a Housing tab on their MyMichiganTech account. There you will find all of your important residence hall room assignment details. Students who apply after August 1 will be able to view their details on the Housing tab as soon as their residence hall application is processed.

For more information, visit the Housing website or contact Residence Education and Housing Services at 906-487-2682 or

Michigan Tech Apartments

  • Hillside Place offers a hybrid residential experience to upper division and graduate students. Each furnished apartment contains four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a living space with panoramic views. All utilities are included with the exception of phone service, and you’ll enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, with electric range, microwave, and full-size refrigerator, as well as laundry facilities, study lounges, a fitness center, and more.
  • Daniell Heights Apartments offer one- and two-bedroom units for students with families, graduate students, and undergraduates who are 21 and older. Utilities are included with the exception of phone service. Apartments are furnished, including stoves and refrigerators, and each building features laundry facilities.

Visit the Housing website to apply for an apartment or gather more information. You can also contact the Housing Office at 906-487-2682 or

Residence Hall Dining Services

Our meal plan provides unlimited access to all three residential dining halls. There is no limit to the number of times you may enter a dining hall to eat a meal or stop in for a snack or drink.

You may use your meal plan in any of the residential dining halls. Meal hours are posted throughout the halls. In the case of a class, lab, or work schedule conflict, arrangements can be made to pick up a meal.

Dining Services offers a variety of entrées at each meal, including vegan and vegetarian options; salad, deli, and pasta bars; and stir fry, pizza, dessert, ice cream, waffle, and beverage stations. If you have an allergy or other dietary need, let the Dining Services staff know—we will work with you to provide the food you need.

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars add flexibility to your meal plan. They are included in the meal plan and allow you to eat at convenient times and locations. Dining Dollars are accepted at multiple retail dining locations on campus and vending machines.

Unused Dining Dollars are transferable from fall to spring semester; however, any Dining Dollars not used by the end of spring semester are nonrefundable.

Visit Dining Services for more information or email Dining Services at

Register for Residential Parking

If you will be living on campus and you decide to bring a vehicle, please register your vehicle and purchase your Residential Parking Permit online by visiting the Michigan Tech parking Portal on the Transportation Services website. Permits will be available to purchase online beginning in August each year. Permits are also available for motorcycles, scooters/mopeds, snowmobiles, and trailers are only available to purchase at the Transportation Services Office in Room 100 of the Administration Building. Please note that winter storage is not available on campus.

Commuting and Off-Campus Living

If you are a Michigan Tech student from the local area, you may choose to live at home with your parent/guardian. All of the same resources and opportunities are available to students who commute to campus, and we encourage you to take advantage of them and get involved.

Before Orientation, commuter students will receive communication about connecting with staff and getting their questions answered. Students can always email with any questions or concerns they may have prior to the start of the semester. As part of fall Orientation, plan to attend the Commuter Orientation Session. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet fellow commuters and to begin to get connected and involved.

Commuter Meal Plans

Meal options are available for commuter students—if you would like to eat in the residential dining halls, or if you prefer eating in retail dining operations like North Coast Deli and Grill and Campus Café.

The Top Dog Express Meal Plan can be purchased in blocks of 10, 25, 50, or 75 meals. The more meals you purchase, the less you pay per meal. This plan can be used in any residential dining hall (DHH, McNair, or Wadsworth) and features all-you-care-to-eat, buffet-style dining.

Express Cash is a debit card program and is available as a feature of your ID card. It operates like a no-interest checking account. By opening an account, you can use your ID at campus locations, including:

  • Campus Store
  • University Images
  • North Coast Grill and Deli
  • Memorial Union
  • Campus Café
  • Central Ticket Office
  • Mont Ripley and the Huski Café
  • Library Café
  • Fusion

Both options can be purchased at the HuskyCard service area in the Van Pelt and Opie Library.

Register for Commuter Parking

If you will commute to campus, please register your vehicle and purchase your Commuter Parking Permit online by visiting the Michigan Tech Parking Portal on the Transportation Services website, before classes begin. Permits will be available to purchase online beginning in August each year and available for pickup after purchasing online. Permits for motorcycles, scooters/mopeds, snowmobiles are only available to purchase at the Transportation Services office in Room 100 of the Administration Building. Please note that winter storage is not available on campus.

Academic Details

View Our Undergraduate Catalog

Michigan Tech’s Undergraduate Catalog provides degree requirements and course descriptions.

Laptop Requirement for All Students

Beginning with the Fall 2020 semester, all students are required to have a computing device. This will help maximize your success in a range of class scenarios during your college career. This requirement means that all students, in the classroom and remote, can fully participate in mixed-mode classes (taught through a combination of in-person and remote instruction), as well as in remote assessment. It will also ensure that students will have access to the technology they need to be successful, while maintaining the physical distancing necessary due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students living off campus are strongly encouraged to have regular and reliable Internet access.

We understand you may already have a laptop or other computing device. There’s no need to buy a new one if your device meets the recommended specifications.

Send Your Final Transcript

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. A significant decline in academic performance during your senior year may affect your enrollment status and, at the University’s discretion, may 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.

First-year students

Request your final transcript through Parchment or contact your high school upon graduation and ask them to send your official transcript showing your final grades and graduation date.

Transfer students

If you have taken additional courses that did not appear on the transcript submitted with your application for admission, contact the registrar’s office at your current institution to request that an official transcript with final grades be sent to us.

Notify Us of Transfer Credit

First-year students

If you completed college-level courses during high school, contact the registrar’s office at the institution(s) and request that an official transcript with your final grades be sent to Michigan Tech’s Admissions Office. Courses will be evaluated for transfer credit.

Transfer students

If you are taking additional courses that do not appear on the transcript most recently sent to Michigan Tech, email your unofficial transcript to The courses will be added to your record as pending transfer credit.

Transfer credits pending but not validated with final transcripts will be dropped from your record. As a result, any scheduled courses that require the dropped transfer course(s) as a prerequisite will also be dropped from your course schedule.

Submit AP, IB, or CLEP Scores

First-year students

Your scores on Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) may earn you credit or placement. Scores must be sent directly from the testing agency. Go to AP/IB/CLEP to see a list of scores needed to receive Michigan Tech credit.

Transfer students

If you received college credit at your previous institution for AP, IB, or CLEP examinations, your test scores must be sent to Michigan Tech directly from the testing agency. For a list of scores needed to receive Michigan Tech credit, visit AP/IB/CLEP.

Course Placement

Michigan Tech offers placement tests to ensure you are beginning your coursework at the right level.


Placement in an appropriate initial math course is crucial to your success at Michigan Tech. Our goal is to place you into the course that will provide the best opportunity to complete your degree in four years.

Starting in a math course that is too low may increase your time to graduation. But starting in a course that is too advanced could mean frustration, difficulty understanding important concepts, or re-taking courses and increasing your time to graduation.

You will be placed in your first math course based on the highest of the following:

  1. Your highest math ACT or math SAT score, or
  2. AP Calculus credit (AB or BC)—if you send your scores, we will receive them in early July (just sit tight until then), or
  3. College transfer credit for College Algebra or higher (high school level classes called precalculus or calculus do not count unless they also appear on a college transcript), or
  4.  ALEKS Math Placement Assessment score—you have five attempts included with the ALEKS.

Only students without 1, 2, or 3 above must take ALEKS.

Does everyone need to take the ALEKS Math Placement Assessment? Not necessarily. Depending on where you place based on your recommended first math course, you may or may not need to take ALEKS. If you ultimately place below your recommended first math course, we strongly recommend you take ALEKS to challenge your placement.

We realize that some students will feel they have not been placed into the correct course. If you wish to challenge your placement, you may choose to take the online ALEKS placement. If you choose to take this test, you waive the initial placement and will be placed according to the ALEKS test results. You can be placed in a lower course, and this result is not challengeable.

ALEKS is available starting May 1.

For more information and to see your recommended first math course based on your intended major, visit the Math Placement page.


Find details on first-year chemistry course placement.

Modern Language

If you plan to continue studying French, German, or Spanish at Michigan Tech, you must take the free online Modern Language Placement Exam to be placed into the correct course. Learn more about the test and view sign-up instructions.

Computer Science Knowledge Assessment

Students enrolling in computer science, cybersecurity, software engineering, general computing, computer engineering, bioinformatics, or cheminformatics must take the online Computer Science Knowledge Assessment in June to determine which introductory computer science course is best for you.

Scheduling Classes

First-year students enrolling in the spring or summer semester: Your schedule will be created by the Registrar’s Office based on your major, ALEKS Math Placement Assessment score, AP/IB/CLEP score(s), and transfer credits received.

Transfer students with fewer than 30 credits enrolling in the spring or summer semester: Make schedule changes by contacting the Registrar's Office at 906-487-2319 or

First-year students and transfer students with fewer than 30 credits enrolling in the fall semester: Your schedule will be prepared for you by the Registrar’s Office in mid-July. Engineering students are scheduled into cohorts (groups of students who take the same courses together) based on your ALEKS or AP score(s) and any transfer credit received.

Be sure to review the recommendations on page 8 regarding the ALEKS Math Placement Assessment. Completing your assessment by the deadline will allow you to have the most complete schedule possible and will ensure you're placed in the best course for you—possibly avoiding unnecessary coursework and tuition.

Your initial schedule may not reflect full-time status (12 credits or more), but all first-year students are billed as full time, making you eligible for financial aid. Any adjustments to your bill will be made in August.

During Orientation, you will be able to add other courses (co-curricular courses, general education, electives) to complete your fall schedule or make changes after consulting with your academic advisor. Changes may also be made by contacting the Registrar's Office at 906-487-2319 or

Transfer students with more than 30 credits enrolling in any semester: Your academic advisor will contact you with course recommendations prior to registration. You will be able to schedule your classes through MyMichiganTech, by calling the Registrar’s Office at 906-487-2319, or by contacting your advisor.

Get Your Books

Once you receive your course schedule, you may order your books online via The Campus Bookstore prior to the start of the semester. After you place your order, your books will be available for pickup when you arrive on campus.

Healthy Living

You need to be physically and mentally well to get the most out of your college experience. If you find yourself under the weather or in need of help, there are resources available to you.

Wellness, Relationships, and Responsible Behavior

All new students are required to complete an online educational program around responsible behavior with regard to substance use and relationships. The course promotes a healthier and safer campus environment for everyone. Watch your Michigan Tech email account in early August for the information you'll need to start the course.

Health Services

Students have access to multiple health care providers and services in the Houghton and Hancock area.

Flu shot clinics will be held during the fall semester on Michigan Tech's campus, with services provided by UP Health System Portage. NOTE: A fee is charged for flu shots, and a waiver can be provided to receive reimbursement from your insurance company. For dates, locations, or questions, please email Student Health Services at

Counseling Services

The staff at Counseling Services is here to help you gain perspective and be successful, personally and academically. Our professional staff of licensed therapists provides solution-focused therapies to assist students in navigating challenges they may face while enrolled at the University. Each clinician works closely with all student support services at Michigan Tech and with health care professionals both locally and in students' home areas. Services are free and confidential. In addition, students have access to telehealth counseling support through the MySSP (Student Support Program) app. MySSP offers 24/7 multilingual real-time phone and chat services as well as short-term phone and video support by appointment, even when students are studying abroad or working at a co-op or internship position. Those who are currently engaged in mental health support in their home communities are encouraged to contact Counseling Services to discuss options for continued care.
