Welcome Future Broncos

Congratulations on your admission to Western Michigan University! Here is a list of steps to prepare for your enrollment at WMU.

Admitted student checklist

1. Learn more about WMU

2. Reserve your place

  • Send $100 Admission Confirmation Deposit, or request a deposit waiver, preferably before May 1. This fee confirms your enrollment and is applied to your fall semester tuition. Visit our Admission Confirmation Deposit instruction website for more information.

3. Pay for college

4. Sign up for orientation

5. Register for housing

6. Prepare for your first year

  • Avoid “senioritis”—we review senior grades for all admitted students. Remember to keep up the good work!
  • Log in to GoWMU for the first time and create a password.
  • Access GoWMU and check your WMU email regularly—official University communications are sent to this account.

7. Request your final high school transcript

  • Transcripts should be sent from your high school to the WMU Admissions Office. Transcripts must be received 10 days before the beginning of the fall semester to avoid delays in financial aid disbursement and course registration. 


If you wish to cancel your admission, complete the cancellation form. The $100 enrollment deposit for fall semester will be refunded if the cancellation is received prior to the following dates:

Fall - May 1
Spring - December 1
