Resources for You

As a counselor or college access professional, we are pleased to provide you with resources and information on Northern Michigan University for your work with students. This page is regularly updated with new information, so please keep it bookmarked so you can refer back often.


A Note from the Director

Gerri Daniels

Welcome and thank you for visiting our resource pages for counseling professionals and college access practitioners.  Whether you are providing college planning services at a middle school, high school, community college, early/middle college, or in your community, we appreciate your connection with Northern Michigan University.  I encourage you to lean on us as you support your students on their post-secondary journey.  

    Helpful resources:

    • Scholarships: You and your students can view scholarships offered at the time of admission.  Don't forget our Presidential Scholars Competition for your high school seniors and now including Transfer Students!  Over 200 scholarships are offered from this competition, including full-ride awards.
    • Financial Hardship/Application Fee Waivers:  If you are working with a student who wishes to apply to NMU and for whom the $35 application fee would cause financial difficulty, please know we consider requests made via standard fee waiver request forms such as through NACAC or the NMU waiver form.
    • Request NMU school spirit items for your classroom or office area.  We'll be happy to send some your way.
    • Meet our staff and find your NMU rep.

    Please consider a visit to NMU.  We'd love to have you as our guest at our summer 'camp' or personalized visit.  We hosted counselor and family summer camp experiences in July 2018 and 2019 and 2022.  We had so much fun meeting counselors and their family members and sharing our love of NMU and the Marquette area.  Kudos to those who climbed Sugarloaf Mountain or jumped off Black Rocks into Lake Superior! We are looking forward to seeing our colleagues again at the program again July 26-28, 2023.

    As always, please let us know how we can strengthen our partnership to serve students.

    NMU Tuition Advantage

    If your students qualify for the Michigan Achievement Scholarship and a Federal Pell Grant, NMU is committed to providing the remainder of their NMU tuition. 

    The NMU Tuition Advantage is a last dollar scholarship that provides funding for tuition after Federal, state and institutional funding is used. This includes a Federal Pell Grant, the Michigan Achievement Scholarship, NMU scholarships/grants and any tuition-specific internal or external funds. Please note: NMU's Global Campus students are not eligible for the Tuition Advantage Program.
