Graduate Admission Applications

See Admissions Procedures or International Student Information for detailed application instructions.

Graduate Degree Seeking

The Application for Admission to Graduate Education is for those students who wish to pursue an advanced degree in one of our graduate level programs.

Submit the $50 application fee. Students may pay online, mail a check or money order or can pay by credit card by calling 1-800-682-9797 or 1-906-227-2300. Applicants should pay the non-refundable application processing fee unless they 1) qualify for the senior citizen tuition waiver (age 62 or older); 2) have already attended NMU at the same degree level for which they are applying (ie., students pay once before the receipt of a baccalaureate degree and once after, if continuing); or 3) were a McNair Scholar at their undergraduate institution. A waiver of the fee may be available to any applicant whose financial circumstances warrant it. To apply for a fee waiver, please provide a letter of request and reason. McNair Scholars must send a letter from their undergraduate institution verifying their McNair status.

Non-degree or Professional Development

The Application for Non-degree or Professional Development is for those students who wish to enroll in courses that do not result in the attainment of an advanced degree. Non-degree admission is granted to students who are not pursuing a master’s degree, but have an interest in work beyond their baccalaureate degree. Professional development admission is granted to provide opportunities for certified K-12 educators.

Application Fee - No application fee is required.


Information about NMU's tuition and fees is available on the tuition and fees page. Please note that graduate tuition and fees are detailed in the middle of the page.
