Senior citizen applicants, aged 62 or older, are provided a full tuition scholarship by Northern Michigan University. The scholarship covers tuition only for on-campus classes; it does not provide for books, fees or tuition for off-campus or web-based classes. To be eligible for this program, the senior citizen should submit an application for admission (no application fee) to the Admissions Office. Students should then register for courses in the Student Service Center, where they will be asked to provide proof of age.
Based on receipt of the Senior Citizen Scholarship award from NMU, students will not be eligible to receive additional University funded scholarships and grants. This will include departmental scholarships, but does not include departmental prizes that are awarded on an annual basis.
