Admitted Broncos

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

ADMITTED STUDENT CHECKLIST


   Set your Bronco NetID password and log in to GoWMU
  • You should have received a Bronco NetID and a temporary password via email from the Office of Information Technology. Your Bronco NetID is different from your WIN (Western Identification Number). Visit Change Password to set you set your Bronco NetID password. If you do not have your Bronco NetID and temporary password, please contact the Technology Help Desk at (269) 387-HELP or email helpdesk@wmich.edu.

  • Log in to GoWMU to verify your new password.

  • Be sure to check your WMU email regularly, as important University business -- such as your financial aid offer details -- will be sent there. 
   Save your spot and confirm your admission
  • Let us know that you plan to attend WMU by completing the Intent to Enroll form in the Gold Gateway
  • 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. The admissions deposit, or an approved waiver, must be submitted prior to registering for orientation. 
  • Note that the admissions deposit is automatically waived for Pell Grant-eligible students (fafsa.gov) when you confirm your admission via the Intent to Enroll form in the Gold Gateway
   Sign up for orientation
   Register for housing
   Complete your FAFSA
   Once you register for classes, activate two-factor authentication
  • First time registering for courses?  The day after registration (which typically happens at orientation) you will be required to activate two-factor authentication (2FA) as part of the WMU Login process. Have your cell phone and Bronco NetID password ready. Learn more at wmich.edu/it/2FA.  
  Submit official test scores
   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. View methods to send transcripts on our website.
