A new online service from WMU’s Physical Plant gives instructors one place to go for all classroom issues. Instructors should go to: broncofixit.pp.wmich.edu/classroom.html for classroom related problems and concerns. This site contains information on who to contact for:
Phone numbers, which will always be answered by a person, are provided in case of maintenance emergencies or a locked classroom. Maintenance emergencies are conditions such as: no power, noisy heating unit, water flooding, etc.
Phone numbers for assistance with classroom technology issues are also included.
Other non-emergency maintenance requests, including such issues as insufficient number of chairs, broken tables or chairs, burned out light bulbs, etc., can be reported using the online form found on this site. Follow the directions on this site to identify the building, the room, and the issue. Instructors reporting maintenance issues will receive a confirmation email, as well as notification when the work has been completed. In addition, instructors can track the status of all reported issues through this site. The Physical Plant Service Center will prioritize all reported issues and will work with maintenance to expedite all repairs.
A poster has been placed in each classroom providing appropriate phone numbers as well as the address for this website. A link to the website can be found on the Registrar’s website, look for the classroom fix it icon on the right hand side!
The 2007-08 versions of both the Undergraduate and Graduate catalogs can be found on: catalog.wmich.edu. Note that the previous catalogs, for 2006-07, are also available on this site. Use the drop down menu at the top to choose the catalog you wish to view.
An online, searchable, Dean’s List is now available on the Registrar’s website. See the Registrar’s website, www.wmich.edu/registrar or go directly to the List: www.wmich.edu/registrar/deans-list/index.php. The Dean’s List for each semester will be available on this site for one year.
A new service for students is now available through GoWMU. WMU students now have the ability to grant view access to third party individuals (such as parents, spouses, or others) to view certain academic and financial aid information. In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), student financial and academic records may not be shared with a third party without written consent. Note that:
The new information the student can grant view access to includes the following:
Information for students can be found on .../registrar/pdf/authorizeduser_student-instructions.pdf.
Information for authorized users can be found on .../registrar/pdf/authorizeduser_thirdparty-instructions.pdf.
The online degree audit system became available to undergraduate students this summer. This new feature allows students under the fall 2004 or later catalog to do their own unofficial degree audit. Students can also do ‘what-if’ analyses to identify changes in their requirements when and if they were to change programs.
Current WMU students are now able to request official transcripts online, through GoWMU. The link for the transcript request form can be found in the My Self Service channel on the Student tab.
