Summer I grades

Grades for all summer I courses are due by noon on Tuesday, June 30. At noon, we will close the system to allow the grading processing to occur. The system will re-open later in the afternoon, at that time students will be able to view their summer I grades.

Please contact the Registrar’s Office, 387-4310, if you have any questions or concerns regarding summer I grading.

New title and other changes for Academic Support Programs Office

The Center for Academic Support Programs (CASP) will have a new name, effective July 1, 2009. The new name will be the Center for Academic Student Success (CASS).

In addition, long time advisor and University Curriculum Director, Donna Mearing, will be retiring from WMU, effective the end of August. Current CASP staff member Rich McMullen will take over as Director of University Curriculum. Congratulations, and best wishes, Donna!

Also, the Advocacy Office for Transfer Students and Military Offices will move within CASS, also effective July 1.

ATIS will have a new name

Academic Technology and Instructional Services, formerly ATIS, will become Online Education, effective July 1, 2009. This change will be reflected in the course offerings list, students will search for online courses by looking for ‘Online Education’, rather than ‘ATIS’.
