Take the next steps to be a NMU Wildcat!

Planning to transfer to Northern Michigan University in the summer or fall semester of 2014?  Once you're admitted to NMU, follow the next steps at www.nmu.edu/checklist.  The primary step that tells us you plan to enroll at Northern is registering for an orientation session; so, if you've decided to be a NMU Wildcat, register for an orientation session today!  More information about the sessions can be found at www.nmu.edu/orientation.


Haven't applied to Northern yet?  It is not too late to submit an application and complete the process.  Apply now!  Applied, but haven't been admitted yet?  Check the status of your application to see what else we need to make an admission decision.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact your transfer admissions counselor (bottom of webpage) or call the main Admissions Office at 906-227-2650
