Last day to withdraw

Today is the last day students will be able to withdraw from a Summer I course.  Students can withdraw through GoWMU until 11:59 pm. tonight.  If they are unable to access the registration system due to a hold on their account, they 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 whether a withdrawal is warranted. Students initiate this process through the Ombudsman’s Office.


The 2016-2017 graduate and undergraduate catalogs are now available online. Catalogs from previous years have been archived and can be viewed by selecting the year from the drop down menu. We will be working on the PDF versions and plan to have those available before the start of the fall semester.

As a reminder, a mobile version of the WMU catalog can be viewed on an Android or Apple device. The catalogs are located under the academic icon on the WMU Mobile app.

New textbook option for studentsBuy Books limage

Last week a new feature was implemented to help students view and purchase course materials.  A “Buy Books” link is now provided at the   bottom of the Concise Student Schedule and the Student Detail Schedule in GoWMU.  Students can click on the link to see all their required and suggested course materials for the semester in one convenient location.  They also have the option of purchasing materials and can select from rental, used, digital or new textbooks.  Students can also select free in-store pick up at Textbook Alley or have their items shipped.

June RSVP reminder

Please remind students to reserve their commencement tickets by Thursday, June 9 if they plan to attend the graduation ceremony.  The RSVP form can be found in GoWMU. 

Reserved tickets will be available for pickup at WMU Bookstore Shops located on the main level of the Bernhard Center during regular hours starting on June 13.
