Director's Message




Welcome to Northern Michigan University.  All new first year and transfer students planning to enroll in courses at NMU are required to participate in the New Student Orientation Program.  Students will be able to finalize their block schedule once they attend an orientation session.

During your NMU orientation, you will be busy!  You will tour and learn about the campus.  You will meet faculty and administrators and complete your schedule. You will meet a variety of representatives from various offices who can help you learn what is available to you at Northern Michigan University.  You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about housing, financial aid, dining on campus, finding a job, and joining a student organization.  We want you to feel at home during your time at NMU and part of making Northern your home-away-from-home starts at orientation.

I encourage you to register for an orientation session as soon as possible as the sessions fill up quickly.  Once you have registered for a session, you can expect to hear from us periodically via e-mail.

As your session draws near you can visit our website to find the information that you will need for getting to your session: directions to check-in, a campus map, an abbreviated schedule, and other important information.  Contact us if you have any questions or need any other help regarding your orientation experience.
