Non-Michigan residents: Our approach to "tuition reciprocity" is through our National Academic Award/Transfer National Academic Award.  The value of this award is reviewed annually with a goal of using this award to close the gap between out-of-state and in-state tuition rates as closely as possible. Residents of all U.S. states outside of Michigan are eligible. 

NMU's National Academic Award and Wildcat Achievement Awards Levels I-V are automatically awarded, regardless of financial need.  They are awarded to full-time first-year students (also known as first-time/full-time freshmen) based on grade point average and test scores.  They are awarded to new transfer students based on college grade point average.  Awards are renewable each year with maintenance of a minimum NMU GPA.  See details about these and other merit-based and need-based scholarships.

 

Estimated costs based on 16 credits per semester and residence in 2-bedroom, 4-person suite, constant dining pass (with dining dollars) or equivalent.

Tuition rates are based on non-resident status. 

*Tuition and fees may vary depending on student's major or college

** Room and board rates may vary depending on specific residence hall assignment.
