Degree Works Chrome Update 

Good news for Chrome users, the Degree Works issues we were experiencing  have been resolved. The browser had a defect, which was fixed in the latest version. Degree Works should once again work properly with Chrome.

Catalog PDF

PDF versions of the 2015-2016 catalogs are available on  the Registrar's Office website under the catalog link. The PDF format was first introduced with the 2012-2013 catalogs to make it easier to search for specific content in the catalog and to allow users to print pages or sections of the catalog as needed. Don't forget, we also have a mobile version of the catalogs available that can be viewed on an Android or Apple device. They can be found on the WMU Mobile app under the Academic Button.

Spring 2016 Textbook Orders

The Spring 2016 textbook deadline is less than a month away.  All textbook orders must be submitted by September 15 to keep WMU in full compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act.  Instructions on the textbook requisition process can be found on the Registrar's Office website.
