The Northern Michigan University undergraduate admissions office welcomes and processes applications on a rolling basis.  While there are no deadlines, we are happy to help you plan well in advance of the semester for which you wish to enroll.

You may check the status of your application with our on-line application status check tool. Check often to see what we have received, and what is missing to complete your application.

We notify applicants of the admission decision soon after all required documents are received in our office. 

You may submit your application online (best option), or print and mail it to us, or we can mail you an application form (e-mail to request an application).

Applicants may pay the $35 undergraduate application fee online, or by phone (1-800-682-9797 or 1-906-227-2650) or may mail a check or money order. Application fee waivers and exceptions may be available.

Although we do not require an admissions essay, personal statement or counselor recommendation, if there is additional information about yourself that you would like to share with us, please feel free to submit it along with your application. These items maybe be e-mailed to or mailed:
