Midterm grading

We are in the final two weeks of midterm grading for the spring semester. Midterm grading will remain open through Monday, March 13. Midterm grades can be entered in GoWMU using the Midterm Grade Worksheet. Grades can also be reported through D2L.   Additional information on midterm grading, as well as instructions on how to submit midterm grades via Elearning, can be found on the Registrar’s Office website.

Security Reauthorization

The semi-annual reauthorization process will be open for final supervisor approvals this week.  Thank you to the over 1400 users that submitted their re-authorization request by the deadline.  If you missed the re-authorization period or require new access, please place a new request for the required systems on GoWMU under "All Links" and then "Data Access Center".

Transfer Course Credit Planning Form

If you are working with a student who is planning to take a course at another institution over the summer, don’t forget about the Transfer Course Credit Planning Form.  This form allows students to obtain pre-approval that the course will transfer back to WMU.    Once the student completes the form, they bring it to their college advisor for approval along with a copy of the course description.  The signed form should then be submitted to the Registrar’s Office where it will be recorded and available when the transcript arrives from the guest institution.
