Last day to withdraw

Today is the last day students can withdraw for summer I courses, withdrawals can be processed by students through GoWMU through 11:59 pm this evening.

Students who wish to drop a course after the Monday because of genuine hardship (i.e., illness, death in the immediate family) must be passing the course, and must complete the late withdrawal form which requires the signature of the instructor in the course.

Other items

Spring grading is now closed. Any students who had not received a grade for a spring course now have an ‘I’ reported, instructors will need to complete the removal of incomplete form to replace the ‘I’ grade.

Please note a new instructor of record has been approved. This new policy can be found on http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/faculty-staff/instructors/InstructorofRecord.pdf. Please keep this in mind as you schedule for Spring 2010.
