TAKING A SUMMER CLASS AND LOOKING FOR FINANCIAL AID?
 

The 2020 Summer Financial Aid Application is available.

  • Log on to your MYNMU account 
  • Financial Aid Information
  • Summer Financial Aid Application
    • Answer the questions; actual enrollment affects eligibility
    • Submit

Beginning in early April, applicants will receive an email to let you know your application has been processed, with one of two outcomes.

  • If you are eligible for the type of aid you requested, you will receive instructions how to view and accept your summer financial aid eligibility.
  • If no eligibility remains, you will receive an email that provides alternative options to consider including making monthly payments and applying for alternative student loans.

Your actual enrollment in summer courses will affect your financial aid. If you are enrolled less than half time, you will not have federal loan eligibility.

Please contact the NMU Financial Aid Office at 906-227-2327 if you have any questions.
