Approximately 1400 students were eligible to graduate this past Saturday. Both ceremonies were well attended by students and their families. We will begin awarding degrees for these students on Wednesday, after grades for Summer I have been submitted.
Census for Summer II will be taken at the end of the day, Thursday, July 3rd. Please ensure that students are registered by then, so that our census count is as accurate as possible. Thursday will be the last day departments will be able to add students to Summer II courses.
Also, please remind instructors to let us know of any students registered not attending, or any students who are attending but not on the class list. Such notification is through email, REGfirstname.lastname@example.org.
And, all sections for Summer II must have an instructor of record listed by the end of the day Thursday.
Grades for Summer I should be submitted by noon on Tuesday. At noon, we will close the grading portion of Banner. During this time, we are moving grades to academic history, updating gpa’s and academic standing. As soon as these processes are complete, the system will be re-opened at which time students will be able to view their grades. I expect that this will be by early evening, approximately 6:00 pm.
As always, please be aware that it is very important to students that they receive their grades on Tuesday. The only exception should be a case where a student is working to complete work in the course; instead of giving an ‘I’, if the work will be completed within 30 days, the instructor can leave the grade blank.
A reminder that WMU will be closed for the July 4th holiday this Friday!
