Congratulations on Your Admission to NMU

We hope you are excited and ready to take the next steps to explore NMU or commit to becoming a Wildcat. Activating MyNMU doesn't mean you're coming to Northern, but it will give you access to more information and next steps. Sign up for orientation to let us know you plan to attend!

We have found that every student and family has different needs, so the steps listed below may vary for you in timing, order, or importance. No matter what your situation, please know your admissions counselor is here to listen and to help. Please contact your counselor if any questions arise.

You're going to love it here. It's the perfect place to Start Your Story!

If you are earning college credit prior to orientation, remember to request college transcripts and AP or IB exam scores sent to NMU. The earlier we receive these, the more helpful we can be in planning your first semester schedule and academic plan.
