NMU offers two options for high school and community college counselors to visit our campus:

Individual Counselor Visit Program

Seeing and experiencing is believing. If you have never experienced the campus of Northern Michigan University, or if it has been a while, we would love for you to come and visit. This program is open to all secondary school and community college guidance staff and their families, and it is much more than just a tour. We will arrange for a meeting with an admissions counselor and a current NMU student will lead you on a tour of campus. We are also able to set up any meetings you may want with other faculty and staff. This offer entitles you to one night's complimentary lodging and a complimentary meal on campus. 

Individual visits are offered anytime NMU is in session and can be scheduled by calling 800-682-9797 or emailing In your email, please let us know when you would like to come, how many people will be in your party, your school and what you would like to do while you are on our campus.
