COVID-19 Updates

Northern Michigan University is asking all admitted and current students to participate in a COVID-19 survey to help our leadership make informed decisions. The survey should only take three to five minutes to complete, and responses will assist NMU with addressing health, safety and course delivery concerns for the upcoming academic year. 

We will be collecting new data monthly in order to monitor students’ perceptions and decisions until the fall semester begins. If you have any questions about this survey, please feel free to contact Jason Nicholas, Director of Institutional Research and Analysis at or Graduate Studies and Research at 906-227-2300 or
