Guest Student

Undergraduate students who are currently attending other colleges or universities may apply for guest student status at WMU. Guest students must be in good academic standing—at least a 2.0 grade point average and eligible to return—at their colleges or universities. WMU offers a variety of courses to help guest students complete degrees at their primary institutions.

Students who wish to be a guest student and transfer credit back to their home institution need to fill out a non-degree application.  

Guest application process

  1. Check WMU course offerings.
  2. Confirm with your home institution that the course(s) you plan to take at WMU will transfer back to your school.
  3. Complete the online application in the WMU Gold Gateway here. Be sure to answer "I want to take classes at WMU to transfer back to my college."

Once your application and official transcript is received in admissions, processing time is approximately two weeks. When processing is complete, you will receive an email and letter notifying you of your admission status and next steps information.
