Registrar’s Notes – April 28, 2014
Spring semester grades are due tomorrow, April 29, at noon. The grading system will be turned off soon after the deadline and we will begin processing. Grades will be available for students to view as soon as processing has been completed, which we anticipate will be sometime in the late afternoon or early evening tomorrow.
Students will be notified through their wmich.edu e-mail account if their academic standing changes to probation, extended probation, final probation or dismissal. The e-mail will explain what the standing means and what impact it has on future registration. If the student has been academically dismissed, a hard copy letter will also be mailed to their permanent/home address. Students who have been academically dismissed will be dropped from their Summer I courses on Thursday, May 1.
As a reminder, instructors are required to provide a last date of attendance for students receiving a grade of “E” or “X”. If attendance information is not available, the instructor can use the last date of recorded academic activity. In cases where the student does not come to even one class session or does not complete any work, the first day of the semester should be used (1/06/2014). Despite the weather closure at the beginning of the semester, January 6 is considered the official start date for the spring 2014 semester.
Registrar Office Website
A few months ago, I mentioned that the Registrar’s Office has been working to update our website. I am happy to announce that we are nearing the completion of that project and plan to launch our new and improved website on May 12.
The Summer I session starts next Monday, May 5. In preparation, please ensure that all sections have an instructor of record and that all sections on hold are either canceled or made active.
