/ Application Eligibility and Requirements


The Urban Technology degree is open to 2024 (and beyond) high school graduates. While Urban Technology is not available as a dual-degree option, a minor is incorporated, so you will explore a complementary discipline in-depth during your time as a Wolverine.


Your application will be reviewed both by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the faculty of the Urban Technology degree. We are seeking problem solvers with an interest in people-driven solutions that address urban challenges such as climate change, equitable housing, transportation efficiency, and more. We want to enroll students who are entrepreneurial and view technology from a variety of perspectives.

No portfolio is required to apply to the Urban Technology degree.

Once your completed application is submitted, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will convert your application to Winter 2025. We accept the Common App.
