Registrar’s Notes – August 11, 2014

Enroll Now Postcard

A postcard is being mailed to over 2,000 students who have not yet enrolled in classes for the Fall 2014 semester. A sample is provided below. Students who have graduated from WMU, have been academically dismissed, or have a registration hold were not included in the mailing.

A preview of the new mailing postcard.

Reclaim the W

Students readmitted to WMU under the Reclaim the W program will be attending one of four Reclaim the W Welcome sessions prior to the start of the fall semester. The Welcome session will cover topics such as time management, motivation, study skills etc. to help get their academic year off to a positive start. In the event you are working with a Reclaim the W student, you may notice they have an AC (academic hold) on their account. This purpose of the hold is to ensure that the student works with an advisor to make any schedule adjustments. The hold will remain on their record until removed by their advisor.
