This program for guest scholars enables graduate students to take advantage of unique educational opportunities throughout the state. Contact the Michigan Tech Graduate School for a list of participating Universities and MIGS liaison officers.

Credit: All credit earned under a MIGS enrollment will be accepted by a student’s Home Institution as agreed and posted according to the practices of transcription of the Home Institution.
Grades: Grades earned in MIGS courses may be applied toward the Home Institution grade point average or used for credit toward a graduate degree as allowed by the Home Institution's policy.
