International Academic Award – Reduced Tuition for International Students at Northern Michigan University

Based in Marquette, Michigan, Norther Michigan University (NMU) is a 4-year comprehensive university with a reputation that has grown based on the cutting-edge technology initiatives, academic programs recognize nationally, and leadership programs initiated. Some of NMU’s degree programs that have received national or international recognition across the years have been business, education, design, nursing, English, and nursing. A unique aspect that recommends NMU is represented by the fact that it is the only university that offers 5 national Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science accredited programs in the US and one among other three nationwide universities that offer diagnostic molecular science and cytogenetics programs. 

Another aspect which recommends NMU as a future place of study is the acceptance of applications all year round. Students, who wish to submit their application to NMU, however need to respect the following deadlines.

For the Fall (Aug.- Dec.) semester the suggested deadline is April 15th and the final deadline is June 1st

For the winter (Jan. – May) semester the suggested deadline is September 1st and the final deadline is October 1st

For the summer (May – Aug.) semester the suggested deadline is January 15th and the final deadline is March 17th

Even though NMU is accepting applications all year round, students are advised to gather all their application documents, receive their immigration documents (I-20) in the mail, and apply for their visa as it is a long process. To apply for an NMU scholarship, students do not need to fill additional documents; however, they need to apply for a specific program in order to be accepted at NMU. In order to apply for an undergraduate program, students need to consult the following link http://www.nmu.edu/internationalprograms/undergraduate-application-process. The application fee costs $35 and must be in US funds.

Academically talented International students will be considered automatically for the International Academic Award but only if they are enrolled at NMU as baccalaureate degree students. The winners will be expected to engage in cultural sharing or community service activities. There will be an unlimited number of awards with a $2.200 per year. Only students who have a high school or transfer GPA of 3.0 or better will be considered. Also, in order to be eligible for the International Academic Award, international students must hold an F-1 Visa and be in a valid immigration status.

It is mandatory that non-native speakers of English will prove an adequate level of English language for admission. The following English proficiency tests will be considered:

  • TOEFL – minimum score of 61 iBT/173 CBT/500 PBT
  • IELTS – minimum overall band score of 6.0
  • MELAB – minimum score of 69
  • ITEP – minimum of 3.7 or higher
  • PTE Academic – minimum score of 50
