Apply to NMU

The opportunities ahead belong to you.

Are you ready?

The next step is to begin your application to NMU.

Northern Michigan University offers rolling admission, so we welcome and process applications all year long and 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 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 mailed directly to the admissions office at:

    NMU Admissions
    1401 Presque Isle Ave.
    Marquette, MI. 49855

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.

Whether you are a potential new freshman, a transfer student, a returning student, an international student or even if you have already earned a college degree, we have a spot for you! Check our Apply By Student Type page if you are unsure which group fits your status.

NMU's Student Handbook describes the Student Code and university policies, including conditions of enrollment related to contact information, financial obligations and housing. It is important to be aware of these policies and we will be happy to answer any questions you  may have about these policies.
