Last Day to Withdraw

Today is the last day students can withdraw from a spring semester course. Students will have access to withdraw through GoWMU until 11:59 p.m. tonight. Students who are unable to access the registration system due to a hold on their account can withdraw in the Registrar's Office.   If the student is not on campus, please have them contact our office at 269-387-4300 for assistance.

After tonight, withdrawal from a course will only be permitted through the hardship panel withdrawal process of GAPDAC. Documentation will be required and the Hardship Panel will determine if a hardship exists and whether a withdrawal is warranted. Students initiate this process through the Ombudsman’s Office

Midterm Grading

Midterm grading ended last Monday, March 11 for the spring semester. Out of 3,758 sections offered this semester, midterm grades were reported in 821 sections.  Grades submitted can be viewed by students through GoWMU or on a Smartphone or other Apple mobile platforms through the WMU Mobile app.

Grad Fair

Grad Fair will be held tomorrow and Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Textbook Alley, located on the lower level of the Bernhard Center.  During Grad Fair, April 2013 graduates can receive 20 percent off regalia rentals, diploma frames, alumni clothing and souvenirs.  They can also pick up their guest tickets for the April 27 commencement ceremony. 

Please help us remind April graduates planning to attend the ceremony to RSVP through GoWMU by April 16.
