Registrar's Notes

November 22, 2010


The online faculty requisition form for textbooks is now open for Summer I and II. Please encourage your instructors to submit their textbook information prior to the January 24 deadline so that we will be in compliance with federal regulations.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Undergraduates in graduate courses

A reminder that undergraduates can only be enrolled in 6000 level courses, or in 5000 level courses for graduate credit, if the student is dual-enrolled or is an ADP.

Here’s the catalog language on dual enrollment –

Dual Undergraduate/Graduate Enrollment Admission

Dual enrollment admission (that is, admission to a master’s program while yet enrolled in a baccalaureate program) may be granted to any WMU senior who has an acceptable academic record (with a grade point average of 3.0 or better for the two years prior to admission date) and who has no more than 15 credit hours remaining for completion of the bachelor’s degree.

Once granted dual enrollment status, the student may enroll in a maximum of 12 credit hours of graduate course work that has been approved by the appropriate departmental advisor in addition to those undergraduate courses required to complete the bachelor’s degree.

Dual enrollment is permitted for the calendar year only, and no graduate credit earned in this way may be used to meet undergraduate requirements. If the bachelor’s degree is not completed in the period of one calendar year, the student may not continue on dual enrollment.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
