Registrar's Notes

June 2, 2008

Today the first of 14 groups of new freshmen will be on campus for Orientation. These new beginners and their parents will be on campus for the two-day Orientation program including advising and registration for fall courses. See the complete schedule on: www.wmich.edu/fye/orientation.

Academically Talented Youth Program (ATYP)

The ATYP program provides classes for advanced middle school students and is administered by the Lee Honors College on campus. As of this fall, classes scheduled for ATYP students will be in Banner and ATYP students will be registered through Banner for their courses. Please note that these courses will have a specific and different level designation, and that these are not courses for which WMU awards college credit.

Other items
