Midterm grading

This is the final week for instructors to enter midterm grades for the spring semester. The Midterm Grade worksheet will be available through Monday, March 12. Grades can be submitted in GoWMU using the Midterm Grade Worksheet or reported through eLearning. Instructions on submitting midterm grades can be found on the Registrar's Office website at wmich.edu/registrar/faculty-staff/grades.
