Michigan Technological University’s College Partners Program rewards exceptional undergraduate, non-Michigan resident transfer students from Northcentral Technical College (NTC), Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC), and the six campuses of Minnesota North College.
The value of the College Partners Pathway Award is equal to the difference between nonresident and resident tuition for a maximum of 10 semesters of undergraduate study—more than $22,000 per year.
All non-Michigan US citizens (or those who have Permanent Resident status) who are accepted for admission to Michigan Tech, and are transferring from NTC, NWTC, or any Minnesota North College are automatically considered for this scholarship. Students must have completed two or more semesters of college at one of the partner colleges as a regular full-time student before enrolling at Michigan Tech and must have a cumulative college GPA of 3.00 or higher to be eligible for the award. Students may not attend another college between their time at the partner college and Michigan Tech.
Scholarship recipients must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.50 at the end of each spring semester. Continuous, regular full-time undergraduate enrollment of at least 12 credits and acceptable social behavior must also be maintained. Students are eligible for this award for a maximum of ten semesters of undergraduate study.
Students eligible for the College Partners Pathway Award are eligible for need-based aid and/or private scholarship funds; however, they are not eligible for other institutional awards such as the National Transfer Scholarship. Students who are eligible for the Alumni Legacy Award or the Military Family Education Award are not eligible to receive the College Partner Pathway Award.
