MARQUETTE, Mich. (WZMQ) – Finlandia University and Northern Michigan University are working on a teach-out agreement.
This tentative partnership gives Finlandia’s students the same or similar services and resources at NMU as they have now at Finlandia. NMU leaders say the focus is to help Finlandia students continue their education as seamlessly as possible.
“Here at Northern, we are guaranteeing them admission,” said Derek Hall, NMU’s Chief Marketing Officer. “They can fill out an application and they are guaranteed to get in. We are also telling them, your credits will transfer and that’s a big thing, if you have taken a lot of classes and close to graduation, we will take those credits.”
Any Finlandia student who decides to continue their education through NMU will work directly with NMU admission’s counselors to create a plan for each student’s individual needs.

Editors note: an earlier version stated that the Teach-Out agreement has been signed by the universities based on a press release that was sent out. The agreement has not yet been signed, and the article was changed to reflect that.
