Registrar’s Notes – May 16, 2011

May 16, 2011

Census

In preparation for census tonight, please ensure:

  • All sections have the correct instructor of record listed.
  • All sections on hold have been cancelled or made active.
  • Registration is complete for all students so that they will be counted in our spring census numbers.

Waitlisting

Waitlisting has ended for Summer I. Any students on a waitlist for a Summer I section have been dropped. Departments may add students into waitlisted sections today as they see appropriate.

E-Transcripts

We are pleased to announce that we are now live with our new, on-line transcript service. Current, as well as former students can request transcripts 24/7 though a secure site. Some benefits of this new service include:

  • E-mail notification throughout the transcript process. Students will receive confirmation when the transcript was sent, and if the transcript was sent electronically to an institution that accepts electronic records, the student will receive verification that the transcript arrived.
  • On-line request tracking ability. Students can log in to Docufide at anytime and see the status of their transcript request.
  • The option of electronic delivery to any destination.

More information on our new transcript service, as well as instruction on how to request a transcript, can be found on the Registrar’s website at http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/records/transcripts.html.
