However, some resources on this page may also be useful to high school students taking dual-enrollment courses or completing middle/early college programs. Students who have completed or plan to complete AP, IB or CLEP tests can see the minimum scores needed for course credit by clicking here.

Transferring to NMU from an out-of-state college or university?
The transfer process for in-state and out-of-state students is very similar. The primary difference is the cost; however, NMU offers merit based transfer scholarships to help make your education affordable. Plus, if you are a veteran, dependent of a veteran or have a parent/guardian or grandparent who is an NMU alum you may be eligible for in-state tuition.
NMU is a transfer-friendly institution and courses transfer from regionally-accredited colleges and universities all over the country. If you have questions about transferring your coursework or need assistance with transfer planning, please contact your transfer admissions counselor.
We want to meet you.
