These agreements allow for incoming students to transfer from their home institution to Michigan Tech.
Michigan Tech also partners with a variety of entities to enhance and expand opportunities for graduate education beyond agreements with individual universities.

Industry and Government Partnered Programs
Distance options are available in some programs for students who are employees of cooperating industry, government, and organization partners and who meet admissions requirements. Interested students should contact their supervisor or the Graduate School for more information. Each agreement is site and program specific, particularly with regard to how the student-advisor relationship will be maintained.
Partner program agreements typically contain the following components:
- approval of the site facilities, such as laboratories, libraries, computer facilities, as appropriate to the program
- appointment of a qualified on-site co-advisor to ad hoc graduate faculty status
- periodic visits to the Michigan Tech campus in Houghton at specific mileposts in the degree (e.g., orientation, proposal defense, final oral defense)
- agreements may also include additional requirements such as provisions for Michigan Tech faculty time on site with the student, summer school residency, video-conferences for periodic reviews.
