Midterm grading

We are in the final two weeks of midterm grading for the spring semester. Midterm grading will remain open through Monday, March 12. Midterm grades can be entered in GoWMU using the Midterm Grade Worksheet. Grades can also be reported through eLearning. 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 re-authorization

The semi-annual reauthorization process deadline is this Friday, March 2. Thank you to the almost 3,000 users that submitted their re-authorization thus far. If you miss the re-authorization period you will need to place a new request for the required systems on GoWMU under "All Links" and then "Data Access Center". If you have additional questions, please contact the Registrar's office at (269) 387-4300.  

Transfer course credit planning

If you are working with a student who is planning to take a course at another institution this summer, remember to have them complete the Transfer Course Credit Planning and Verification Form. The form is to be used by currently enrolled WMU students for obtaining the approval to transfer a course from another accredited college or university in the United States. Once the student completes the form, secures a course description,  and obtains the advisor's signature, the form should be submitted to the Registrar's Office where it will be recorded and available when the transcript arrives from the guest institution.  


We are in the process of scheduling additional user training for 25Live, the campuswide academic room scheduling application. Stay tuned for upcoming dates!
