WMU uses an online application system that we refer to as the "WMU Portal." To begin your application, select the “Sign Up” button in the top right corner, and fill in your legal first and last name, primary email address, birth date and current school. You will also need to create a password. Be sure to save your personal account login information so you can return to complete your application in more than one session, or to check your application status. We will use your email address to communicate with you as the status of your application is updated.
If you started an application and you need to complete and submit the application, or if you need to check the status of a submitted application, you can follow the same link to log back in to the portal.
At any time, if you have questions about the online application process, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office (269-387-2000) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday.
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires availability of the annual security and fire safety compliance document to prospective students, faculty and staff. You may request a hard copy version by calling (269) 387-5555.
The report includes campus security and personal safety information as well as crime prevention, fire safety, university police law enforcement authority, crime reporting policies, disciplinary procedures and other matters related to security and safety of campus. It also includes crime reporting statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Western Michigan University, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
