Grading for Spring 2013 has been closed. Students who were not issued a grade by the instructor have been given an incomplete. Instructors can remove the “I” grade using the “Remove Incomplete Grade” link on the Faculty menu in GoWMU.

Grading for the Summer I session is open.   Summer I grades are due at noon on Tuesday, July 2.

Summer Commencement

The June commencement ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, June 29 in Miller Auditorium.   Graduates planning to attend should reserve their tickets no later than Wednesday, June 19.   The RSVP form can be found under the Academic Services menu in GoWMU.   Graduates can also reserve their six guest tickets through the Registrar’s Office by calling 269-387-4300.

Graduate Catalog

Both the 2013 Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs are available online.  They can be accessed on the Registrar’s Office website (www.wmich.edu/registrar), under the student and faculty/staff tabs.   You may notice some changes to the front pages of the graduate catalog.   Revisions were made at the request of a subcommittee of the Graduate Studies Council in an effort to incorporate information from the Graduate Advising Handbook.

Authorized User Access

As you work with students and parents you may want to remind them that we have the authorized user access option in GoWMU.  It allows students to add individuals as an authorized user to view billing, financial aid and academic information.
