Student Info & Resources

 

Dr. Greenamyer, the Special Assistant for Academic Policy, oversees the approval of all Course Substitution Request Forms (formerly called Waivers) and has the final word on all Dismissal Appeals

Academic Recovery Plans (ARP), which are required for all students on academic probation, are collected by this office.  Students do not have access to these forms.  The procedure is: 

  • The student makes an appointment with his/her academic advisor;
  • Together, the advisor and student devise a plan to raise the student’s GPA;
  • The advisor then fills out the online ARP form; 
  • And the form is submitted electronically and forwarded by automatic process to this office. 

Students who fail to have an ARP completed and submitted by their advisor will have a hold placed on their account and will not be permitted to schedule or drop/add.  As soon as an ARP is received by this office, the hold will be removed.

All WCU students are encouraged to arm themselves with knowledge of the academic requirements and policies that they’ll encounter and utilize in their time at the university.  They are expected to consult their Undergraduate Catalog (or Graduate Catalog, if applicable) often and familiarize themselves with the WCU General Education Program.
