Application Procedures

Applicants must follow the required steps of the application process to be considered for admission to Northern Michigan University. Please determine your applicant status and adhere to the corresponding steps listed below:

  • Complete an application for admission (unless a student has previously applied; if so, notify the Admissions Office).
  • Submit $30 application fee.
  • Request official high school transcript or GED score report, and/or any college/university/trade school transcripts to be sent to the Admissions Office. (Non-degree applicants, transfer applicants who have completed 12 or more college level-credits after high school and post-baccalaureate applicants are not required to submit high school transcripts.)
  • Request ACT or SAT scores to be sent to NMU. These may be on the official high school transcript or sent directly from the testing agency. (See exceptions under Standardized Achievement Testing).
