Middle Level Education

All freshmen will be required to earn a 2.5 cumulative GPA by the end of their second semester.

Transfer students must earn the required 2.75 at the end of their first semester at WIU

Students not meeting these requirements and who are not within 12 s.h. of "B" work in meeting the GPA, will be required to change their major.


Requests for special permission are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Receiving permission for a class guarantees you a seat in that class. You do not have to be cleared to register to receive special permissions.

All unused special permissions will be removed May 1st or December 1st (depending on the semester), except for those students with a financial encumbrance.

Permission will not be granted for any C & I upper level course (300/400) unless the student has been "fully" accepted to TEP.
