Admissions COVID-19 Updates

Western Michigan University is committed to ensuring that COVID-19 and related closures, cancellations, and other disruptions don’t negatively impact students’ ability to be admitted and enroll at WMU.  In this effort, WMU temporarily adjusted and implemented several admission and enrollment policies for fall 2021 and fall 2022 entry, although most practices are back to pre-pandemic status. 

Following are commonly asked questions and answers for admitted and prospective students.  Please call (269) 387-2000 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET if we can assist in any way. 

We also offer many opportunities to connect in person or virtually.  Visit to see all the ways we’re available to help.

Prospective Students

  • How will Pass/Fail (P/F) or Credit/No Credit (C/NC) grading impact my admission?

    Provided you receive a passing mark, courses taken P/F or C/NC in spring 2020 through spring 2022 will not impact your admission to WMU.  WMU will use your most recent cumulative GPA available for admission, scholarship, and honors college consideration.  Courses taken during this time frame will be looked at to make sure you passed and took college-prep courses that will help you be successful as a WMU student.
