Registrar's Notes

July 28, 2008

Tuition rates

The new tuition rates were set at Friday’s Board of Trustees meeting, and can be found on http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/tuition.  The 2008-09 tuition does not include any changes in the tuition structure.

Keypad code change

Last fall keypad codes were put on classrooms in Dunbar, Kohrman, McCracken, Moore, Sangren and Wood Halls. These four-digit codes will be changed the week of August 18-22. As soon as my office is given the new codes by Public Safety, we will pass them on to the Building Coordinators who will be notifying instructors. Please do note that the current codes will not work when fall starts, instructors will need to use the new codes.

Summer II 2008 grading

Grading for Summer II 2008 is now open. Note that the deadline for Summer II grades is Tuesday, August 19th at noon.

Spring 2009 advising day

Please note that the Advising Day for Spring 2009 will be Monday, January 5. WMU will not be open on Friday, January 2nd.

Changes in student registration

A reminder that we require a student signature with any request to drop or add classes from that student ’s schedule. An email confirmation, if from the student’s wmich.edu email account will be accepted in lieu of a signature. To protect the student, and WMU, we cannot process a drop or add without specific written consent of the student, either by signature or thru the wmich.edu email account.

Looking toward fall, a few reminders

  • Students can change their grade mode (letter grade, credit/no credit, audit) only through the end of the drop/add period.
  • Instructors do submit a grade for all students in all courses, even if the student has elected to take the course on a credit/no credit basis.
  • All 7000 level courses are only offered on a credit/no credit basis.
