Students who find themselves in academic difficulty or who struggle with issues that are beyond the scope of their department or the Registrar’s Office, come to us. Dr. Greenamyer, the Special Assistant for Academic Policy, oversees the approval of all waivers of general education requirements and has the final word on all dismissal appeals.
Academic Recovery Plans, which are required for all students on probation, are collected by this office, as well. Students do not have access to these forms, rather, the procedure is:
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 able 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.
