Congratulations on your acceptance to Michigan Technological University! We're excited that you're considering applying for early admission to the Pavlis Honors College.
Apply for early admission now. Start your pathway later.
The full Honors Pathway Program is for students with at least sophomore standing, or one complete semester at Michigan Tech. Since every student's pathway is different, we'd like you to learn a bit about yourself and about life at Tech before you start developing your pathway.
But you want to get started. To explore your passions. To make sure that you're more than a student ID on a degree flowchart—to make sure your college experience is unique to you. That's probably why you're interested in Michigan Tech. And it's why we created the early admission (sometimes called the pre-admit) program.
When you apply for early admission:
- We'll enroll you in HON 1150, a one-credit course in the fall designed exclusively for first-year students
- You can apply to live in the Pavlis LLC, first-year housing in Wadsworth Hall (it's optional and spaces are limited)
- We'll invite you to opportunities and events exclusive to honors students
- You'll bypass the application process to the full honors program if you choose to join
- There's no penalty if you try early admission and decide the full honors program isn't for you
