Spring 2013 census will be occurring next Monday. In preparation, please make sure:
Waitlist notification will be turned off Friday afternoon for the spring semester. Any student still remaining on a waitlist will be removed the morning of January 14. Departments will then be able to register students into waitlisted sections on census day as they see appropriate. If you would like to print a list of students waitlisted in a section prior to next Monday, you can do so in Banner on the SFAWLPR form.
Flu season is here and the Centers for Disease Control is reporting high levels of influenza like illness. The CDC recommends that people diagnosed with influenza and a fever (100 degrees or more) stay at home until they are free of fever for at least 24 hours. The University will continue to follow the policy established in 2009 regarding medical excuses provided by Sindecuse clinicians. The policy is as follows:
Textbook Requisition Process
A few improvements have been made to the textbook requisition process to make it easier for faculty to submit their textbook information to the bookstore. The instructions on the Registrar’s Office website have been updated to reflect the recent changes and can be found on the faculty/staff tab under “textbook info”.
A new Cognos report is also available that lists all sections for which a textbook order has not been placed. To locate the report, go to:
60.00 Catalog and Course Offerings>
60.30.20 Sections Missing Texbook Orders
As a reminder, Summer I and Summer II textbook orders need to be submitted no later than January 21, 2013. This needs to be done in order to keep WMU compliant with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008. Institutions of higher education are to provide required and recommended textbook information with their published course offerings
Students still have time to apply for April graduation. The deadline has been extended and applications will be accepted through Friday, January 18. Information on the application process can be found on-line at http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/graduation/index.html. Please note the deadline to apply for June and August graduation is February 1.
