Graduate financial aid is available to students who have been granted regular degree admission and meet all of the admission requirements of the College of Graduate Studies and the department.
All financial aid recipients must meet the following requirements: (1) have a high school diploma (or its equivalent); (2) be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen; (3) be enrolled in an eligible graduate program as a master’s degree candidate; (4) be free of default on any educational loans; and (5) not owe an overpayment on any federal grant.
All financial aid recipients must make satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward a degree. Graduate students receiving financial aid must maintain a cumulative NMU grade point average of 3.0 and complete 75 percent of the classes in which they enroll. Eligibility is limited to a maximum of 60 credit hours for a graduate degree.
Federal law requires all students who receive financial aid to make satisfactory academic progress toward their degree. NMU students must meet the following requirements:
If special circumstances such as illness, injury or the death of a family member prevent the student from meeting these requirements, the termination of eligibility can be appealed to the SAP Appeal Committee. Documentation of circumstances must be included with appeals. In addition to the standards listed above, the Northern Michigan University SAP Committee will use professional judgment in assessing a student’s eligibility. This will occur in circumstances such as when a student falls significantly below a standard and does not have a realistic chance of meeting the standard by the end of the warning period, or when a student fails all of his or her courses in a semester. Attempted hours include credit hours successfully completed as well as credit hours that receive non-passing grades (F or U), credit hours that are not yet finished (I, MG, R, X), and credit hours from which the student withdraws (W).
