Admitted on Probation

Probation is a support program for students who have been conditionally admitted to NMU with credentials (ACT/SAT and HS GPA) slightly below NMU's admission standards. Students remain in the program until they reach academic good standing by attaining a 2.00 NMU GPA.

Probation students take Reading and Writing Assessments at orientation, then placed in blocks appropriate to their scores for their first semester. A "block" of courses consists of a 2-credit Freshman Seminar course (UN100B), 2-3 General Education courses and may also include an academic support course as an introduction to success in college. Unique to Probation, the Freshman Seminar instructor will also serve as the academic adviser to the students enrolled in his/her UN100B course.
