Students

All WMU students are in WMU Signature!

WMU Signature is available to all undergraduate and graduate students.  WMU Signature is optional for all students and not a requirement for graduation.  You can complete WMU Signature at no cost on your own time schedule any time before you graduate.

 

Benefits

Why to consider participating in WMU Signature:

  • STAND OUT from peers to employers and graduate schools.

  • Get ENGAGED: students who are more engaged in out-of-classroom experiences have been shown to retain better, graduate earlier, and have more positive outcomes.

  • Find a PASSION: connect with other students, faculty, and staff who share a similar passion.

  • Do something UNIQUE: have an experience related to your passion that you share in interviews.
