Midterm Grading

This is the final week for instructors to enter midterm grades for the spring semester. The Midterm Grade Worksheet will be available through Sunday night, March 11.    Assigning midterm grades is an important step in improving retention.   Not only do midterm grades provide students with an indication of how they are progressing at the halfway point of the semester, they allow advisors to identify students who are struggling academically and connect them with resources to help get them back on track.

Fall 2012 Registration

Fall registration opens next Monday, March 12 for graduate students.   Students with priority registration (Athletes, DSS, Honors, RAs, Trio) are eligible to register on Tuesday, March 13; followed by seniors with 122 credit hours on Wednesday, March 14.  The complete priority registration schedule can be found at:  http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/calendars/timeticketFall.html.
