Campus Life

We also know how to have a great time after class, especially in our incredible new Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts. This year's line-up includes comedians Gallagher and Lewis Black, country star Brad Paisley, the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and bluegrass legend Sam Bush.

Athletics / Sports

Our NCAA Division I men's ice hockey team. Our men's basketball team was rated in the top ten in the nation last year, and we are always competitive in football and women's basketball and volleyball.

Financial Aid / Tuition

We're committed to making it possible for all qualified students to attend, regardless of financial circumstances. Currently 77 percent of Michigan Tech's students receive financial aid totaling more than $40 million annually. Four kinds of assistance are available: *Scholarships -- These gifts are awarded on the basis of student potential and, in some cases, financial need. *Grants -- These funds are provided by the federal or state government or by MTU and do not need to be repaid. *Student Loans -- The interest charged on student loans is below regular interest rates. Payment does not begin until after students leave Michigan Tech. *Part-Time Employment -- Through multiple programs, MTU provides on-campus student employment opportunities.

You may apply any time after completing your junior year. Transfer Admissions Transfer applicants must be in good standing at the college they are attending and meet transfer and course requirements for their major program.
