NMU Admission Requirements

For both undergraduate and graduate applications, the following items must be completed before an admissions decision can be made on an application:

1. Complete International Student's Admissions Application

NMU accepts applications all year round whenever they are sent. Recommended deadlines can be seen here.

2. Application Fee

The Application Fee must be in U.S. funds as NMU does not accept foreign currency. For graduate applicants, the fee is $50. For undergraduate applicants, the fee is $30.

There are several ways for you to pay for the services at Northern. You can use a credit card, you can pay by phone, you can send a bank draft or money order, or you can pay by wire transfer.

3. Mail Official Transcripts

Transcripts must be sent directly to Northern Michigan University from your institution(s). If you are a freshman, we require your high school transcript(s). If you have attended university, we require your university transcript(s) and high school transcripts are not required.

Applicants should send transcripts and credential evaluations to:

Admissions Office
Northern Michigan University
1401 Presque Isle Ave
Marquette, MI 49855 USA

Transcripts must be translated into English by a qualified individual. In addition, NMU cannot accept faxes, scanned copies, or emailed copies. We will accept attested, official copies for students who are issued only one official copy of their transcripts. Appropriate seals, stamps, and/or signatures are required to ensure originality.

4. Prepare Credential Evaluation

In addition to your official transcripts, we require mailed external evaluation of credits for all non-U.S institutions. This is used to help determine admissibility and any transfer of credit. NMU will notify you if a subject analysis report is needed to determine transfer credit.

Below is a list of the different credential evaluators that you may use. Please select one of the following institutions. You must supply transcripts and pay the required fees.

  • Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) - Please read the instructions on the ECE form carefully. A "Course-by-Course" report - or equivalent - must be selected ($135).
  • World Education Services (WES) - Select the "Course by Course" report ($160). The WES ICAP service allows applicants to submit their official educational documents only once-to WES. NMU would then receive the verified documents from WES.
  • North American Educational Group (NAEG) - Select the "Course by Course" report ($135).

The only time this evaluation is not necessary is if students have studied at an internationally recognized institution or transcripts are from an American institution.

5. Supply English Proficiency Test Score

Graduate Requirements

  • TOEFL Score - 213 computer-based, 550 paper-based or 79 iBT.
  • IELTS - score of 6.5 or better.
  • MELAB - score of 79 or better.

Undergraduate Requirements

  • TOEFL Score - 173 computer-based, 500 paper-based or 61 iBT.
  • IELTS - score of 5 or better.
  • MELAB - score of 69 or better.

If your English language skills are not good enough to apply for general admissions, please apply for our English as a Second Language Program. We can help high school, undergraduate, and graduate students learn English. All test scores must come directly from the testing agency.

GRE and GMAT

The GRE is required for the following programs: Biology, Biology/Chemistry, Psychology (Experimental) and Public Administration, including Criminal Justice Administration, Human Resource Administration, State and Local Government and Public Management. For admission to the Business Administration program, the GMAT is required.

6. Provide Certification of Finances

Your sponsor can fill out the proof of finances page and have a bank fill out the bank section. Please be sure the bank and your sponsor sign the proof of finances page or it will not be accepted. Or your sponsor can write a letter of support and provide a current bank statement that shows proof of the amount of financing.

7. Only for Graduate Students

Please also note that some programs may have unique requirements for admission. Some examples include letters of recommendation, CV/Resumes and certificates. Please reference this page to ensure there are no other documents necessary to apply to your program of choice.
