Before Coming to WMU for the First Time

  • FAFSA:  Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid by March 1.
  • ETV:  Complete your Educational Training Voucher application.
  • Medicaid:  Ask your caseworker about how your Medicaid coverage will transfer to Kalamazoo County.
  • FERPA:  Become familiar with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.
  • Parking:  Be aware that parking is limited on campus and cars are generally more costly than students first realize. We recommend going without a car on campus for as long as you can to save money and headaches.
  • Questions:  Call your campus coach or peer Seita scholar leader with questions.
