Midterm grading

Midterm grading ended last Monday for the spring semester. Midterm grades were reported in 1073 sections—23% of sections offered this semester. This was a 4% increase from spring 2014. Thank you to the 608 instructors who took the time to submit a first work or midterm grade this semester.

Last day to withdraw

Today is the last day students can withdraw from a spring semester course. Students will have access to withdraw through GoWMU until 11:59 p.m. tonight. Students who are unable to access the registration system due to a hold on their account can withdraw in the Registrar's Office. If the student is not on campus please have them contact our office for assistance.

After tonight withdrawal from a course will only be permitted through the hardship panel withdrawal process of GAPDAC. Documentation will be required, and the Hardship Panel will determine if a hardship exists and whether a withdrawal is warranted. Students initiate this process through the Ombudsman's Office.

Fall 2015 textbook requisitions

According to a report run by the bookstore last Monday we still have a large number of fall 2015 sections without a textbook assigned. Please ensure that this information is submitted as soon as possible. According to the Higher Education Opportunity Act WMU is required to publish this information with our course offerings.

Catalog proofs

Catalog proofs for the 2015-16 Undergraduate and Graduate online catalogs were sent to departments via email on March 6. Departments are asked to please look the proofs over, indicate any editorial corrections and return them to Laurie Foster in the Registrar's Office no later than April 10. Each change must be identifiable so please mark changes clearly. If you have any questions please let Laurie know.
