If you have submitted your Graduate Application for Admission and would like to check the status of your application, you are in the right place!

We will process your application and documents as we receive them, and they are normally added to your "application checklist" within 3-5 days of their arrival.

NMU assigns each applicant a unique student identification number (NMU IN) to protect your records and privacy.  If your application was not complete, you should have received a letter shortly after you applied that contains your NMU IN. This letter is mailed within 2-3 business days after your application is entered.

  • If you know your NMU IN, check your application status here.
  • If you do not have your NMU IN, use this page to check your application status at any time
  • (NOTE: If you did not provide a social security number and/or date of birth on your application, you must have your NMU IN to check your status)

If the online application status check is not working for you, or you have questions, please contact us. Our regular office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Eastern time. During the summer, we are open 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Our phone number is 906-227-2300.

**Students who have applied to re-enter the university should also check mynmu.nmu.edu for any holds that may impact their admission or registration status.
