April 1, 2013
As we enter the last few weeks of the Spring 2013 semester, here are some things to remember regarding final exams:
WMU students planning to attend another institution as a guest student over the summer can apply using a guest application. If the student is seeking enrollment at a Michigan college or university, they can complete a Michigan Undergraduate Guest Application. Students can access the guest application in GoWMU. The application will be filled in automatically with all the required information, including the WMU seal and the registrar's signature. The student only needs to print, sign and mail the application to the guest school. The application can also be found online at http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/pdf/forms/MichiganUniformGuestApplication.pdf.
Students using the non-GoWMU version will need to bring the application to the Registrar’s Office to have part II of the form completed. All students interested in taking a course over the summer at a guest institution should contact that institution to determine if additional requirements are required for admission or enrollment. Students must arrange to have a transcript sent of any credit earned from the guest institution back to WMU upon the completion of the semester/session.
Priority registration ended last Wednesday. All current students are eligible to register for Fall 2013 courses.
Upcoming Textbook Requisition Change
The bookstore is in the process of transitioning its operations to Follett. As part of this change, the current textbook requisition process will no longer be used starting on April 11. On April 15, the textbook requisition link in GoWMU will be redirected. Instructors will need to go to a Follett maintained site in order to enter or review faculty adoption information.
An email with instructions on the new process will be going out soon to all instructors. In the meantime, please encourage any instructors who have not yet submitted their textbook information for Summer I, Summer II or Fall 2013 to do so before the April 11 cut off, as the textbook requisition system will not be available between April 11 and April 15. Students will continue to be able to view all textbooks ordered on the course offerings site throughout the transition period.
There is a lot more to see! Visit some of our friends at WMU to learn about academics, costs of attendance, and campus life.
