ADMITTED STUDENT CHECKLIST

1. Set your Bronco NetID password and log in to GoWMU

  • You should have received a Bronco NetID and instructions to create a password via email from the Office of Information Technology. Your Bronco NetID is different from your WIN (Western Identification Number). Visit Change Password to set you set your Bronco NetID password. If you do not have your Bronco NetID and temporary password, please contact the Technology Help Desk at (269) 387-HELP or email helpdesk@wmich.edu.

  • Log in to GoWMU to verify your new password.

  • Be sure to check your WMU email regularly, as important University business -- such as your financial aid offer details -- will be sent there.

2. Let us know you're coming.

  • Let us know that you plan to attend WMU by confirming your admission in the Gold Gateway, including paying your $100 enrollment deposit, or request a deposit waiver. This fee confirms your enrollment and is applied to your fall semester tuition.   

Note that the enrollment deposit is automatically waived for Pell Grant-eligible students (fafsa.gov) when you confirm your admission in the Gold Gateway

3. Begin orientation process (including an advising appointment).

Once you have completed the admission confirmation process (Step 2 above), you should register for new student orientation. All incoming domestic undergraduate students starting summer I, summer II or fall 2021 are required to participate in orientation.  The delivery of orientation information will come to you in a number of ways, but your first steps include:

  • Log into the Student Orientation Hub using your Bronco NetID and Password to complete your pre-advising surveys, including:
    • Pre-advising survey
    • ALEKS math placement (especially important for engineering, aviation and science students)
    • Foundations in Writing
  • Contact your academic college to schedule an appointment with your academic advisor to register for classes. View advising office contacts online

For further details and registration links, visit the Orientation website.

4. Update your FAFSA and apply for scholarships.

5. Register for housing.

7. Send your final transcripts.

  • Submit a final transcript from your college upon completion of your most recent course work to WMU Admissions at admissions-transcripts@wmich.edu. This is an important step as it can affect your ability to register for future terms and may also affect your financial aid and housing status. If you decide to enroll at WMU and chose to submit self-report scores, you must provide official test scores prior to new student orientation. See testing policy for details and review the ways to submit your scores.
