MARQUETTE, MI-- Northern Michigan University has been called “a model of efficiency” by University Business Magazine.
The school is one of nine colleges and universities across the country recognized for streamlining higher education operations through technology or other improvements.
NMU is being honored for automating its Foundation Scholarship application program. Students who used to submit paper applications for each scholarship they wanted now go online. What used to take two staffers working full-time for four weeks now takes one staff member working five days.
The magazine says Northern’s scholarship system has become more student-focused.
