Online Learning

Our goal at NMU is to meet your learning and service needs at the same high standards we do for our on-campus students. These programs and online degree courses are designed to facilitate learning while allowing for flexible instruction.

Online Course Preparation

Beginning with the Winter 2015 semester, all students enrolled in an online course must have completed the Online Course Preparation Tutorial prior to accessing the course for the first time. The tutorial is a self-paced module designed to provide information about the strategies, tools and technology needed to be a successful online learner at NMU.
