Congratulations on your acceptance to NMU! We hope you are excited and ready to take the next steps to explore NMU or commit to becoming a Wildcat. Here are your next steps:
Register for Orientation
We want students to start their college career prepared for not only their first year at NMU, but for years to come. Throughout the year, we host a number of Orientation programs for our students to help integrate new students into the academic and co-curricular life of the institution, and connect students with the campus community.
Housing and Residence Life is dedicated to student learning inside and outside of the classroom by creating unique communities for students to call home in the residence halls and on-campus apartments. Office staff, Resident Directors, Resident Advisers & Community Advisers work to make a difference in the lives of the students with whom they interact.
You're going to love it here. It's the perfect place to Start Your Story!
Let Us Know How We Can Help
We have found that every student and family has different needs, so the steps listed below may vary for you in timing, order, or importance. No matter what your situation, please know your admissions counselor is here to listen and to help. Please contact your counselor if any questions arise.
If you are earning college credit prior to orientation, remember to request college transcripts and AP or IB exam scores sent to NMU. The earlier we receive these, the more helpful we can be in planning your first semester schedule and academic plan.
