Spring registration

Registration for spring 2011 continues today with sophomores, 30 hours and up, now eligible to register. The full priority registration schedule is online, see:  http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/calendars/timeticketSpring.html.

Last day to withdraw

Monday, Nov. 8 is the last day students can withdraw from fall classes through GoWMU. Students can withdraw through 11:59 pm on the 8th. 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.
