The Michigan BON is the one who can accurately answer your questions.
This was taken from the Michigan RN application and it states that you DO have to take a refresher course based on the following criteria:

If the NCLEX-RN is not passed after 3 attempts within this 12-month period, theapplicant must complete an approved RN educational program, refresher course or exam review course.After completing the educational program or course, the applicant may take the examination 3 moretimes. An applicant has a maximum total of 6 attempts to pass the NCLEX-RN.
