Welcome and thank you for visiting our resource pages for counseling professionals. Whether you are providing counseling services at the middle school, high school or community college level, we appreciate your connection with Northern Michigan University. Please consider a visit to NMU sometime soon; we'd love to have you as our guest on our bus trip weekend or personalized visit (see links at left).
"Change" seems to be the operative word in our world, doesn't it? Here are some informational items that might be helpful in your world.
Admission Policy Change--Computation of High School Grade Point Averages: Effective for applicants for Winter 2014 and later, NMU will use the overall cumulative GPA reported on the high school transcript. If a high school computes more than one GPA (e.g. weighted and unweighted), we will use the higher of the two.
NMU Application for Admission and Counselor Form--We welcome counselor comments regarding students applying to NMU, but they are NOT required. You may submit the eSSR through Parchment/Docufide OR our counselor form, but not providing this does not delay the admission decision. If you feel there is information to share that could impact the admission decision (issues that have impacted the student's grades or test scores or course choice), we encourage you to submit the eSSR or our form, or call or e-mail me or your NMU admissions counselor.
Financial Hardship/Application Fee Waivers--If you are working with a student who wishes to apply to NMU and for whom the $30 application fee would cause financial difficulty, please let us know. We will waive the application fee or for those applicants who have completed their application file (all transcripts and test scores have been received at NMU), we are able to defer the application fee to their tuition bill.
Use technology to "visit" NMU: You or your teachers may want to consider an electronic field trip (associated with career pathways) for your students.
As always, please let us know how we can strengthen our partnership to serve students.
