NMU wants to make the financial aid process as easy to understand as possible, which is why we created the NMU Financial Aid Toolbox for students, parents and teachers. Included in the toolbox is the NMU Financial Aid Pathfinder, which outlines Northern’s financial aid process in step-by-step fashion. This is also a cost calculator, a glossary of terms and much more.  Check it out.
