parents moving their students in Mom taking a picture of son at graduation family in wildcat gear at volleyball game

Whether your son or daughter is a current student or a prospective student, we are happy to welcome you to the Wildcat family. We know that it's intimidating to send your child to college, so we hope to provide information and resources to answer all of your questions. We are here to help you and your student from first inquiry and NMU acceptance through graduation and beyond. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to making sure your student finds success and your questions are answered.


The admissions website is the hub of information for all prospective students and their parents. We've created a special page for parents to hopefully answer any questions that you have. 



The dean of students website is a great resource for current students and their parents. You can revisit presentations that the Dean of Students gave during orientation or find new information that will help you stay connected with your child while he or she is in college.
