Registrar's Notes

Course cancellation notification

The automatic e-mail notification to students in a canceled class is now up and running.  Departments will no longer need to notify students prior to canceling a course.  We now have a workflow which will send an e-mail directly to their wmich.edu address triggered by this office canceling the section and dropping the students from it.  The e-mail reads as follows: 

Thank you for registering for ENGL 1100, Literary Interp, CRN 20004 that was scheduled to meet Summer I 2010. Unfortunately the department has found it necessary to cancel this section. Therefore, it has been removed from your class schedule for Summer I 2010. All associated tuition/fees have been refunded. If you have any questions, please contact the department directly.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Summer I census

Our census numbers for Summer I have been posted, please see http://www.wmich.edu/ir/reports/enrollment/dose/201020dose.pdf for complete information.

Overall, our Summer I, 2010 enrollment is 8,850 students, which is down 173 students (-1.9%) from Summer I of 2009.


A reminder to remind instructors to get their fall textbook information to the bookstore, so that it can be listed with the course information on the course offerings pages. As you know, the Higher Ed Opportunity Act of 2008 mandates that textbook information (required and recommended) be available to students when they view the schedule of courses offered.

To help you know which courses do not have textbooks listed at this time, there is a cognos report available. The report is in the Schedule Building Reports-Banner folder, and is titled ‘DEPT:Textbook List for Scheduled Sections’. This report can be run by department.

Upcoming dates:

  • Monday, May 31 – Memorial Day recess – no classes
  • Friday, June 4 – last day for 25% refund for complete withdrawal
  • Monday, June 7 – last day to withdraw
  • Monday, June 7 – Spring 2011 schedules due
  • Saturday, June 26 – Commencement
  • Wednesday, June 30 – Summer I ends
  • Tuesday, July 6 – Summer I grades due at noon
