Registrar's Notes


November 17, 2008

Spring 2009 registration

Priority registration ended last Friday, so at this point all eligible students can register for Spring courses at WMU. Currently there are 17,487 students registered for spring.

Fall grading

Grading for Fall 2008 is now open. Grades are due no later than noon on Tuesday, December 16, 2008.

Fall final exams

The schedule for final exams can be found on the Registrar’s website, see: www.wmich.edu/registrar/finalexam.html. All final exams are scheduled according to this schedule, in the classroom where the course normally meets, unless arrangements have been made with this office for a different room.

If there are needs for classroom space for review sessions or any other meetings during finals, please contact this office to reserve a room. We appreciate your help in eliminating any potential room conflicts so that finals can be given smoothly.

As usual, any make-up final exams are scheduled for Friday, Dec. 12th, from 12:30-2:30.

Open Learning courses

The first two courses in the new open learning program are now available for spring 2009. They are ADA 2250 - CRN 16382 and ADA 3200 CRN 16383. 

Active WMU students will be able to register for these courses from now until April 24, 2009 for the spring 2009 semester.  They will select their own start date between January 5 and April 24, 2009 and have a maximum of six months to complete the course from their start date.  They may complete the courses quicker if they wish.  This is an open entry/open exit program. 

Also note, these courses do not count in the WMU flat rate tuition credits.  Students will be charged the EUP undergraduate tuition rate plus a $20 technology fee per course.

Please contact Teri Cleveland, 387-4199, with any questions.
