NMU offers unique learning community programs for first-year students.  Our First Year programs are designed to help students make a successful transition to college. The goals are to help students develop strategies and attitudes to achieve academic success. The UN 100 course will familiarize you with available resources (both campus and community) and how to use them, and will assist you in developing positive relationships with faculty, staff, and other students.

The following is a list of first year programs that are available to you:

The First Year Experience. The First Year Experience (FYE) program is for full-time first-year (freshman) students who have been admitted to the university in good standing. Students choose from a block of courses related to their intended major, or from blocks for undeclared students. It's how students register for their first semester classes at NMU!

Academic Support Program. Students conditionally admitted to the university will automatically be placed in a block of classes designed to provide the structure that students need to be successful in college. Students will also meet frequently with their advisers.
