My NMU Web site:  Once you activate your NMU account, become familiar with My NMU Page and all of the information that is available to you.  You can check your personal information, your degree program, view your billing formation, pay your bills, link to NMU EduCat and check your NMU e-mail. 

NMU E-mail: Official means of communication:  NMU requires students to check their NMU e-mail account on a regular basis as this is the Official Means of Communication.  This means that official mail is sent to your NMU e-mail account including such things as: your tuition bill, messages from your instructors, class cancellations, and NMU announcements.  

If you prefer, you can have your NMU e-mail automatically forwarded to your designated e-mail account.

It is recommended that you sign up for NMU Emergency Text Alert program to learn if classes are canceled due to inclement weather.  You can also call the Burr Line, 906-227-2660.
