Applicants who are still enrolled in high school and wish to be enrolled in NMU courses (on NMU's campus or online courses) prior to high school graduation are considered dual enrollment applicants and may be admitted provided the student has demonstrated consistent, excellent academic achievement. Local school districts have their own requirements regarding approval of students seeking to pursue dual enrollment. Students should contact their school counselor or principal. Additionally, the following requirements must be met for admission as a dual-enrolled student at NMU:
- Applicants must have completed the 10th grade of high school and have achieved a minimum 3.00 grade point average. Those not meeting these criteria but who believe they could be successful in college course work should contact the NMU Admissions Office for guidance.
- Applicants are limited to taking eight credits per semester and must meet course prerequisites.
High school students planning to enroll at NMU during the summer may be eligible for our Summer Scholars Program.
Dual Enrollment Application Instructions
1. Complete the “Northern Michigan University Application for Dual Enrollment.” This needs to be completed in advance
of each semester in which the student intends to enroll in courses.
2. Submit one-time application fee of $35.00 (if not previously paid). This non-refundable application fee will cover any
admissions processing through the completion of your bachelor’s degree at NMU.
3. Request your official high school transcript (directly from high school). For subsequent semesters of dual enrollment,
an updated transcript should be sent if additional semester grades have been recorded.
4. If your high school is providing any portion of tuition payment, please have them complete the Desired
Courses/Billing Information portion of the application and send to NMU Admissions. This is needed each semester.
Students should check with their high school officials regarding possible payment of tuition and fees by the high school.
Schools may or may not fund dual enrollment. Schools that are able to provide funding may not fund 100%. Any balance
not covered by the high school is the student’s responsibility. Students must abide by the withdrawal and add/drop
procedures. If you drop a class for which your school has approved payment, you must notify your school.
You will receive notification of your NMU admission status by mail. This will include course registration information.
Documents can be mailed to:

Marquette, MI 49855
Or faxed to: 906–227–1747
Dually enrolled students who plan to attend NMU as a new first-year degree-seeking student after graduating from high school should submit a new application for admission (no additional fee) during their senior year, along with the most current high school transcript and ACT or SAT test scores (if not previously submitted). High school seniors considering the Presidential Scholars Competition should apply in accordance with deadlines.
