December 16, 2013


Fall semester grades are due tomorrow, December 17, at noon. The grading system will be turned off soon after the deadline and we will begin processing. Grades will be available for students to view as soon as processing has been completed, which we anticipate will be sometime in the late afternoon or early evening tomorrow.

Students will be notified through their wmich.edu e-mail account if their academic standing changes to probation, extended probation, final probation or dismissal.  The e-mail will explain what the standing means, the impact it has on future registration and information on recourses available to assist them. If the student has been academically dismissed, a hard copy letter will also be mailed to their permanent/home address

Students who have been academically dismissed will be dropped from their spring semester courses on Thursday, January 3.
