How do I know what credits will transfer to NMU?
NMU has easy to use online credit transfer information for students in U.S. community colleges. Visit our “Credit Transfer” website at http://www.nmu.edu/admissions/credittransfer to learn how your current credits will transfer to NMU. Typically, students who transfer to NMU with an Associate’s degree can earn their Bachelor’s degree in just two years.
How do I transfer my I-20 to Northern Michigan University?
Once you are admitted to NMU you will be mailed and e-mailed your admissions letter and a “transfer clearance form.” Bring a copy of your admissions letter and your transfer clearance form to your DSO and your DSO will complete the form and fax it back to NMU at 906-227-2533.
After you complete your current semester, your DSO will transfer your SEVIS I-20 to Northern Michigan University DET214F0009000.
Is there any financial assistance available to International Students?
Yes, there is a Transfer International Academic Award available for international students who transfer in an overall grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher at NMU will receive the award, which reduces their tuition. This reduction can amount to a savings of US$1,100 per fall semester, US$1,100 per winter semester, US$1,000 per Spring/Summer semester, or up to US$3,200 per calendar year. The student must maintain their full-time status and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher to continue to receive the Transfer International Academic Award. A student can receive this award a maximum of 5 semesters.
There are also "minor" scholarships available to International Students each year. These scholarships vary between US$250 and US$500.
What is “Compulsory” Health Insurance
“Compulsory” means you must purchase the health insurance offered program by NMU. This policy is for basic coverage only. You may want to obtain a more comprehensive health insurance policy in addition to this policy.
