Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for NMU grads with a Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) (average earnings climb to $65K per year).

Benefits and Perks

Although slightly more than two-fifths of former students are compensated for vacation days, only one in three grads are paid for sick time. A fair number of graduates have medical plans, and more than half of survey participants have dental insurance. A strong majority of alums opt for a 401(k) to save for retirement. Other benefits that Northern Michigan University alumni receive are life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and 403(b).
