The midterm grade—which needs to be entered no later than March 15—will replace the first work grade on the worksheet. Students will be able to view their midterm grade in GoWMU or on a smartphone through the WMU Mobile app as soon as the grade has been entered. Instructions on submitting a midterm grade can be found online.

Summer graduation application

We will continue to accept graduation applications for June and August graduation through the end of the month. Please encourage students that are planning to graduate over the summer to submit their information to the Registrar's Office as soon as possible.

Reverse transfer

President Dunn recently signed a reverse transfer agreement with Bay de Noc Community College. This signing marks an exciting milestone for WMU as we now have reverse transfer agreements in place with all 28 community colleges in Michigan. WMU is only the second school in the state to accomplish this. WMU also has one out-of-state reverse transfer partner—College of DuPage in Illinois. Additional information on reverse transfer—including a complete list of our partners—can be found at online.
