The 2012-13 Undergraduate and Graduate catalogs are now available online at http://catalog.wmich.edu.   Previous versions have been archived and can be viewed by selecting the prior catalog year from the drop down menu. 

Last Day to Withdraw

Today is the last day students will be able to withdraw from a Summer I course.  They can withdraw through GoWMU until 11:59 pm. tonight.   Students who are unable to access the registration system due to a hold on their account can withdraw in the Registrar's Office.   If the student is not on campus, please have them contact our office at 269-387-4300 for assistance.
After tonight, withdrawal from a course will only be permitted through the hardship panel withdrawal process of GAPDAC. Documentation will be required and the Hardship Panel will determine if a hardship exists and whether a withdrawal is warranted. Students initiate this process through the Ombudsman’s Office


Grading for Spring 2012 has been closed. Students who were not issued a grade by the instructor have been given an incomplete. Instructors can remove the “I” grade using the “Remove Incomplete Grade” link on the Faculty menu in GoWMU.
Grading for the Summer I session will open next Monday, June 11.


Over 300 students will be on campus today and tomorrow attending the first of 12 orientation sessions scheduled this month.
