Registrar's Notes

August 17, 2009

Summer II grades

Grades for summer II are due by noon tomorrow, Tuesday, August 18. The grading system will be shut down at noon so that we can process grades. I expect that this will take a few hours, and that grades will be available for student viewing by late afternoon.

Please remind instructors that when giving incomplete grades they also need to submit the ‘Report of Incomplete’ form found on the faculty menu in GoWMU. This form is now completely electronic, when the instructor completes the form and submits it, a copy will go to the instructor, to the student and to Registrar’s Office.

As always, please contact this office with any questions related to grading.

December commencement

Applications for graduation in December 2009 will be accepted in this office through Friday, Sept. 18.

Keypad changes

The four-digit keypad codes to rooms in Dunbar, Kohrman, Moore, Sangren and Wood will be changed today. Building coordinators will be notifying department staff and instructors. If there are any questions, please let me know.
