International Academic Award – Reduced Tuition for International Students at Northern Michigan University
Posted On August 4, 2017
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
