N Michigan University offers $1K bonus to winter transfer students
Marquette – Northern Michigan University is offering at least $1,000 to students who transfer to the Upper Peninsula school for the winter term.
The university believes some students might be looking for another campus after the fall was dominated by the uncertainties of COVID-19 restrictions. The Marquette area wasn’t hit as hard with coronavirus as other college towns.
“We’re trying to offer support during this challenging time and assist those students who would like to enroll at Northern next semester,” admissions director Gerri Daniels said.
Classes begin Jan. 19. Michigan residents who enroll for the first time at NMU will get $1,000 knocked off their tuition bill. Community college students who are Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society members can get $1,500.
NMU started classes a week earlier than usual in August in order to end the term before Thanksgiving. The university had in-person and online classes until going online-only near the end, following the state health department’s statewide order.
