Summer session information

Summer I ends Wednesday, June 29. Grades are due next Tuesday, July 5 at noon. Grades will be available to students as soon as we complete processing, which should be sometime in the late afternoon on July 5.

Student registration user guide

A new guide is available on the Registrar's Office website. The user guide walks students through the registration process from logging into GoWMU to viewing and purchasing textbooks.

Spring schedule building

Round two for spring 2017 schedule building reports will be available in Cognos on July 11. All changes during round two must be marked on the working report, signed by the department chair and submitted to the Registrar's Office no later than Friday, July 15 at 5 p.m.

Questions can be forwarded to Laura Thomas or Richard Carbonneau.

Accelerated Graduate Degree Program

Accelerated Graduate Degree Programs (AGDP) allows students to begin accumulating credits toward the completion of a master's degree while still enrolled as undergraduates.

Some things to know about AGDPs:

  • Undergraduate students admitted to an AGDP can up to 12 hours of designated 5000 and/or 6000 level courses for graduate credit which can be used in both the Bachelor's degree and the Master's degree.
  • The Accelerated Graduate Degree Program Course Approval form should be completed and submitted to the Registrar's Office when the student is admitted to the AGDP.
  • The master's degree is accelerated, not the bachelor's degree.
  • Students in AGDPs are considered undergraduates for tuition purposes until they receive their bachelor's degree.
  • Undergraduate students needing to enroll in 5000 or 6000 level courses for graduate credit will need to process their registration in the Registrar's Office before the end of the drop/add period.
  • Graduate courses, which are double counted, will appear on the student's graduate transcript and will be part of the graduate GPA.
  • The hours that are double counted will be added to the undergraduate transcript and the grades will be included in the undergraduate GPA. This will be done manually by the Registrar's Office when the student completes the degree.
  • The student will be considered a graduate student the first semester after the bachelor's degree is awarded and will be assessed graduate tuition from that point forward.
