Resources for K-12 Students
Early Middle College
The Eastern Upper Peninsula Early College Program is a partnership between LSSU and the constituent school districts of the Eastern Upper Peninsula Intermediate School District. This five year high school program allows a student to earn a high school diploma and college credits leading up to an associate’s degree from LSSU or a Michigan Early/Middle College Association (MEMCA) technical certificate.
There is no tuition cost to parents or students.
Welcome Letter from the GEAR UP Coordinator
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Lisa Repa and I am currently the GEARUP/KCP College Day Coordinator at Lake Superior State University. I am trying to re-implement the program back to its original standing, while ensuring that any student that is eligible for the program(s) is allowed to participate and benefit from them.
I have met with faculty and counselors from both local middle and high schools, as well as other surrounding area schools to go over planned activities as well as to start planning other programs/camps, to help students plan for a post-secondary educational path. The MI GEAR UP program is a solid opportunity for students to get the help they need in an educational capacity, as well as having the opportunities to earn scholarships to put towards their college education.

Reminder!! – You must meet with your advisor prior to scheduling. Each student has a ‘WEB ADVISOR HOLD’ on their account prior to registration. Your advisor can remove the hold.
Current students may register as of their time ticket date or any time thereafter through the sixth day of the Fall or Spring semesters (fourth day for Summer or Winter semesters). Remember, your time ticket is based on earned credits only. As an example, if you are registered for 15 credit hours this semester and have 50 earned credits, the system will only recognize the 50 earned credits. If you are trying to access the registration system before your time ticket allows, you will receive the error message: “You are not permitted to register at this time.”
