Salary and Debt by Major at Northern Michigan University

We calculated a salary score for each of Northern Michigan University's programs by comparing program-specific median alumni earnings to median alumni earnings for the same program across all schools that provide this data. This way, students can compare the relative salary strength of a specific major at Northern Michigan University to the same major at other schools. A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program. Data is sourced from the December 2020 release of the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and reflects median alumni debt upon graduation and median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for students who received federal financial aid. Debt and salary numbers are shown rounded to the nearest $10.

Do not go to this University if you are planning on being a commuter. You will regret it. Least commuter friendly campus I have attended, and I've been to a few. Obviously parking is abysmal, but that only scratches the surface. Draconian traffic enforcement designed to squeeze as much money out of you as possible, archaic online integration, and even the class schedules are frankly ill-suited for any commuter.

NMU is a terrible school. There is nowhere to park. The free tutoring is trash. The tutors can never even figure anything out and waste your time. If I could go back in time, Id go to ANY OTHER SCHOOL. No one cares if everyone is doing bad in a class and the students are blamed instead of the instructor. Do not go to NMU. Its SUCH a waste of money.
