Summer I Grades

Summer I grades are due Wednesday at noon. Grades will be available for students to view as soon as processing has been completed. 

Students dismissed as a result of their Summer I grades will be dropped from their Summer II courses on Friday, July 7. 

Session Information

Summer II census will be occurring Friday.  Please make every effort to register all students attending a Summer II course in Banner by the end of the day Friday so they can be accurately reflected in our census counts. In addition, please verify that all sections have the correct instructor of record assigned and any sections on hold have been canceled or made active.  

Summer II waitlist notification will be turned off Thursday and any student remaining on a waitlist will be deleted Friday morning.  Departments may add students into waitlisted sections on Friday as they see appropriate. 


According to the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA), WMU is required to publish textbook information with our course offerings.  As of last week, there is still 667 fall 2017 sections without a textbook assigned. This means we are only 83% in compliance.

Please ensure textbook information is submitted as soon as possible.  In addition to compliance, timely submission of textbook information is important as students have the ability to view and purchase course materials during the registration process.  


At the June 29 meeting, the Board of Trustees set tuition for the coming year. The tuition/fees page has been updated on the Registrar's Office website to reflect the changes that will go into effect fall semester.  The tuition calculator will be available soon. 

Fact of the Week

In 1904, tuition to attend Western State Normal School was $3.00 a term.  Tuition was free to students preparing to teach in rural schools.  The estimated cost of textbooks at that time was $5.00.
