How to Apply

  Note to previous applicants: if you have applied online in the past, you will
  have to create a new Web ID and PIN. Your ID and PIN resets each year.

Applying to Summer Youth Programs

There are two ways to apply to SYP: online and with a paper application. Whichever way you apply, SYP requires a non-refundable deposit of $100 per exploration, due within ten days of application.

Without this deposit, your application will not be processed. Participants are not guaranteed enrollment in a course until final confirmation from SYP is received. All applications and enrollment forms are processed in the order in which deposits/registration fees are paid.

To apply online, click the button above. You will be asked to create an account; from there, you can enter all of your information and even pay your deposit online!

To apply by paper, you can request a catalog or print out a copy of the application. Paper applications can be submitted in one of several ways:

Scan: syp@mtu.edu
Fax: 906-487-1136

Summer Youth Programs
217 Administration Building

Enrollment Paperwork

Once we receive your application, our office will work to process your application to complete enrollment. Starting in the spring, we will send a Confirmation Packet that includes important forms that must be completed, so be sure to watch your mailbox. You may also print paper copies of the necessary forms by visiting the Applications and Forms page of our site.

More detailed information about each exploration and campus life will be sent out approximately one month prior to a participant's arrival at Michigan Tech.

Scholarship Programs

To apply for any of the Competitive Scholarship Programs, simply complete the application for the program you're interested in and submit with the required teacher recommendation, short answers, and school transcript. All Competitive Scholarship Program applications are available on the Applications and Forms page.
