Registrar’s Notes – May 5, 2014

Summer I

The Summer I session started today at 8:00 a.m. Students have until the end of the day Friday to add/drop a Summer I course. The official census count will be taken at the end of the day on Monday, May 12. Please make every effort to ensure that all students attending Summer I courses are registered in Banner so they can be accurately reflected in our census counts.

Study Abroad Course Repeat Policy

Just a reminder that students may repeat a course taught by an overseas institution during WMU sponsored study abroad if they receive prior approval by the department. A Study Abroad Repeat Course Permission Form needs to be submitted to the Registrar's Office prior to starting the repeated course. The form can be found on the Registrar's Office website.

Reclaim the W Program

Reclaim the W Program is a pilot initiative to restore first year students (FTIACs) with a WMU GPA between 1.00 and 1.99 that were dismissed at the end of their second semester.
