summer grading

Grading for the Summer I session has been closed. Students who were not issued a grade by the instructor have been given an incomplete. Instructors can remove the “I” grade using the “Remove Incomplete Grade” link on the Faculty menu in GoWMU.

Grading for the Summer II session is open. Summer II grades are due at noon on Tuesday, August 23.

fall tuition invoices

Tuition invoices for the Fall 2016 semester will be printed tomorrow, August 2. Please make sure all students who have asked to be registered for the fall semester are entered into Banner by the end of the day to ensure that their statement is as accurate as possible.  
Fall tuition is due Tuesday, August 30, one week before the start of the semester.

dismissed students

Students who have been academically dismissed will be dropped from their Fall 2016 courses today.

December graduation application deadline

The deadline for students to apply for December 2016 graduation has been extended to September 16. The extension is to allow students who are away from campus over the summer time to meet with an advisor and submit their paperwork to the Registrar's Office when they return in the fall.

Exciting changes are coming to the graduation auditing process. An online application for students to apply for graduation is being developed and we anticipate making it available to undergraduate and graduates students in October. Additional information will be shared as we get closer.

Important dates for faculty and staff

The Important Dates Calendar for Faculty and Staff has been updated on the Registrar’s Office website to reflect dates for the 2016-2017 academic year.   In addition to providing important academic dates, this calendar also includes information specific to faculty and staff such as schedule building dates, course fee deadlines and textbook submission deadlines.
