Registrar's Notes

Nov. 2, 2009

Spring registration

Registration for spring classes continues, with the last group of juniors, those with 56 hours or more, now eligible to register. The complete priority list can be found on ../registrar/calendars/timeticketSpring.html.

Reminder – online, open-learning and EUP courses

As students are registering for spring courses, a reminder that online, open learning and EUP courses are charged tuition outside of the flat rate. The EUP rate is $318.28 per credit hour for undergraduates and $449.94 per credit hour for graduate students.

Last day to withdraw

Monday, Nov. 9 is the last day students can withdraw from fall classes through GoWMU. Students can withdraw through 11:59 pm on the 9th. Students who withdraw will have a grade of ‘W’ recorded on their transcript for that course.

After this time, students wishing to withdraw from a fall course will need the signature of their instructor on the late drop(withdrawal) form. As the form states: “Students who wish to drop a course after the Monday of the tenth week in the Fall/Spring semesters and after the fifth week of Summer I/Summer II sessions because of a genuine hardship (i.e., illness, death in the immediate family) must obtain the approval of the instructor. Students must be passing the course and provide supporting documentation. Note: A grade of “W” will appear on your transcript. Return completed form to the Office of the Registrar.“ This form can be found on: ../registrar/pdf/forms/late_drop.pdf.
