Applicants who hold a baccalaureate or higher degree and who wish to pursue another undergraduate degree (in a field other than that of previous degree/s) or seek an initial secondary or elementary provisional teaching certificate, are considered post-baccalaureate applicants and will be admitted to NMU providing they have graduated from an accredited college or university. Individual academic programs may have additional requirements for admission.
Those not seeking an undergraduate degree or teaching certificate but wishing to take undergraduate level courses for personal or professional development or preparation for a graduate program will apply as post-baccalaureate non-degree and will see the non-degree option on the application.
