Last day to withdraw

Today is the last day students can withdraw from a spring semester course. Students will have access to withdraw through GoWMU until 11:59 p.m. tonight. Students who are unable to access the registration system due to a hold on their account can withdraw in the Registrar's Office. If the student is not on campus, please have them contact our office at (269) 387-4300 for assistance.

After tonight, withdrawal from a course will only be permitted through the hardship panel withdrawal process of GAPDAC. Documentation will be required and the Hardship Panel will determine if a hardship exists and whether a withdrawal is warranted. Students initiate this process through the Ombudsman’s Office

Graduation auditing letters

The graduation auditing letters have recently been revised to make them easier for students and advisors to understand.  As part of this change, symbols were added to all auditing letters with the exception of the initial audit.  The symbols display in the upper right-hand corner of the letter and provide a visual image of the student’s graduation status. 

A green check shows that the student is on track to graduate.  A yellow triangle means the student has outstanding degree requirements such as an incomplete grade.  A red octagon indicates that the student is canceled from graduation.   A key to the symbols is included at the bottom of the audit results the student receives.
