Spring semester grades are due tomorrow, May 3, at noon. The grading system will be turned off soon after the deadline and we will begin processing. Grades will be available for students to view as soon as processing has been completed, which we anticipate will be sometime in the late afternoon or early evening tomorrow.

Students will be notified through their email account if their academic standing changes to probation, extended probation, final probation or dismissal. The email will explain what the standing means and what impact it has on future registration. If the student has been academically dismissed, a hard copy letter will also be mailed to their permanent/home address.

Students who have been academically dismissed will be dropped from their Summer I courses on Thursday, May 5.


Over 2,600 degrees were conferred at the commencement ceremonies on Saturday. The hashtag “#WMUGrad” was provided in the commencement program for graduates to share their graduation comments and photos.  Click here  to see what our graduates had to say on their special day.
Graduation auditors will begin awarding degrees on Tuesday and graduates can expect to receive their diploma in a few weeks.  When the diploma is printed an email is sent to the student’s email account that includes a link for the graduate to view their actual diploma.  Graduates have the option of receiving a signed and certified PDF copy of their Western Michigan University diploma.  Additional information on the eDiploma option can be found on the Registrar’s Office website.

Summer I
