The Michigan College and University Partnership (MiCUP) Transfer Transition Program is a collaborative effort between three Michigan community colleges (Delta College, Grand Rapids Community College, and Wayne County Community College District) and Michigan Tech.

The goals of the program are:

  • to encourage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields;
  • to spark students’ interest in research; and
  • to significantly increase the transfer of underrepresented ethnic minority, first-generation, and economically disadvantaged students from community colleges to four-year institutions.

The MiCUP Transfer Transition Program began in 2000 as the MiCUP Unlock Your Future Program. Michigan Tech received a five-year grant in 2006 and a six-year grant in 2011.
