Summer I

The summer I session starts today at 8 a.m. Students have until the end of the day Friday to add or drop a summer I course. The official census count will be taken at the end of the day on Monday, May 13. Please make every effort to ensure that all students attending summer I courses are registered in Banner so they can accurately be reflected in our census counts. 

Summer I waitlist

Waitlist notification will be turned off Thursday morning for the summer I session. Any student remaining on a waitlist will be removed Friday afternoon. If you would like to print a list of students waitlisted in a section prior to Friday, you can do so in Banner on the SFAWLPR form. 

Reclaim the W

Reclaim the W is a support program for academically dismissed first-year beginner, first-year transfer, and second-year students. There were 60 students enrolled this semester in the Reclaim the W program.  Of those students, 97% are eligible to continue at WMU and 83% successfully moved from academic dismissal to good standing.  We will be welcoming our fifth cohort of Reclaim the W students in fall 2018.
