Registrar’s Notes – July 22, 2013

July 22, 2013

Last Day to Withdraw

The last day of the student-initiated withdraw period for the Summer II session is next Monday, July 29. Students will have access to withdraw through GoWMU until 11:59 p.m. on the 29th. Students that are unable to access the registration system due to a hold on their account can withdraw in the Registrar's Office.   If the student is not on campus, please have them contact our office at 269-387-4300 for assistance.
After July 29, withdrawal from a course will only be permitted through the hardship panel withdrawal process of GAPDAC. Documentation will be required and the Hardship Panel will determine if a hardship exists and whether a withdrawal is warranted. Students initiate this process through the Ombudsman’s Office.

Reverse Transfer

Reverse Transfer is an agreement between Western Michigan University and area community colleges that allows students to receive an associate degree by combining credits earned at both institutions.  WMU signed its first Reverse Transfer agreement with Grand Rapids Community College in June 2011.  As of today, 10 agreements have been singed and we have reached out to over 600 students eligible for review under this initiative.  A list of our partners and more information on reverse transfer can be found on our website at:
