Registrar's Notes

January 5, 2009

Registration for spring

Please do all you can to ensure that current students are registered for all their spring courses prior to census, including all graduate students, students doing internships or independent studies, etc. It is important that our census numbers reflect our true headcount credit hour numbers.


Please remind instructors to report students not attending, or students attending but not on the class list, using the links on the Faculty menu in GoWMU. Staff in the Registrar’s Office will attempt to contact these students and resolve the registration issues.
