As a condition of enrollment, all NMU students are required to use their assigned NMU email accounts to receive communication from the university.


Office of Graduate Studies and Research Trainings

Our department regularly covers topics like thesis formatting and submission, research compliance, grant funding, and how to present research. Thesis and research trainings will have both daytime and evening presentations in order to best meet the needs of our graduate student body. Trainings are usually 1 hour long and light refreshments are provided.
