About

Official graduation

All students are candidates for graduation until such time as the academic record of each student has been given a final audit. The audit is generally completed within 10 weeks. Be sure your graduation auditor has the correct address for mailing your diploma. Transcripts must be requested in writing.

If you have questions regarding commencement, please contact the Registrar’s Office at (269) 387-4300 or registrar-info@wmich.edu. The administration and faculty of Western Michigan University wish you success as you leave the University and hope that you will call on us if we can be of further service to you.
