Read all about it!
Read up on The Western Edge—a new plan for this year’s incoming students. According to the information on the web site:
“The WMU plan will offer incoming students a compact that will require them to carry a full credit load, commit to annual advising, declare a major by the start of their sophomore year and agree to take advantage of a range of campus academic support measures. In turn, the University will provide enhanced advising resources and will adjust course scheduling to ensure better access to courses required for degree completion. Western Edge plan students who maintain a 3.0 GPA during their first year on campus will receive a financial incentive of $500 to help defray the cost of their second year at WMU. All plan participants also will be able to live in campus residence halls for four years with no increase in housing costs above the level of their first year on campus.”
