Last day to withdraw

Today is the last day students can withdraw from a fall 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 at (269) 387-4300 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 a withdrawal is warranted. Students initiate the hardship withdraw process through the Ombudsman's Office.

Student concern form

As we move closer to the end of the semester, student stress and anxiety will often increase. Faculty or staff concerned about a student can report this using the student concern form. Information recorded on the form is confidential and goes directly to the Dean of Students Office. There is a link to the student concern form on the Faculty menu in GoWMU

Fall 2016 schedule edits

Spring 2016 graduation

December 1 is the deadline for students to apply for graduation if they are planning to complete their degree at the end of the spring 2016 semester.  An email was sent last week to students reminding them of the application deadline and providing instructions on the process to apply for graduation.
