Academic Standards, Policies and Degree Requirements

Familiarity with the content of the Northern Michigan University Undergraduate Bulletin is essential for all students. It is important that students obtain complete information and understand all of the requirements to successfully complete their degree ­ programs. Although there are faculty advisers and many other sources of assistance, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to meet all graduation requirements.
