Important Notes Regarding Transfer Scholarships
New transfer students who meet the criteria for a scholarship to NMU will receive a letter of notification regarding the scholarship. New transfer students who do not meet the criteria or do not receive the scholarship will not be notified. For the new transfer awards, students who may meet the criteria after admission but prior to enrollment at NMU (due to updated transcripts or test scores) should contact the Admissions Office. Upon review, if students meet the criteria, they will receive written notification regarding the scholarship they will be awarded.
