These brief seminars are designed to give incoming freshman an introduction to international issues – the core of NMU’s curriculum for the 21st century. Coursework begins with travel abroad in early August and continues with regular classroom meetings in the fall semester. Past programs have traveled to Scotland, London, and Quebec, Canada.
Check back periodically for updates.
You'll go head-over-heels for the adventure and friendships connected to each Freshman Experience Abroad!

Participation is limited to first-time freshmen admitted in good academic standing for the Summer 2012 or Fall 2012 semester.
In addition to 2 credits of NMU tuition (billed as part of fall semester), each course carries an international program fee, payable in installments (see schedule below).
This international program fee includes:
Students should also budget personal spending money for each course.(The FEA International Program fees do NOT apply toward regular semester fees. You'll need to register separately for NMU's new student orientation program and on-campus housing.)
Your 2-credit FEA course will be billed as part of your fall semester tuition. Your financial aid package may not cover all the costs associated with the international program fee, which pays for the travel portion of the course. The Financial Aid Office has a cost-of-attendance budget on file for each FEA program and can give you detailed information about eligibility for loans and other forms of financial assistance. Most forms of aid are not available until the start of the regular semester. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at 906-227-2327.
You will also want to be aware of the following deadlines:
|May 1:||Final deadline for reservation and $400 deposit (to be applied toward total International Program fee).|
|June 1:||Second payment due.|
|July 1:||Final payment due.|
