WP stands for “withdraw pass” while WF stands for “withdraw fail”. If you’re attempting to get out of a class after the 9-week mark, a grade (pass/fail) will be included with the withdraw. If you WP, your GPA for the semester won’t be affected. If you receive a WF, it will be equivalent to failing the class. This will reduce your GPA until you can retake the class and replace the grade.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between a WP and WF?+
Can I take summer classes back home at my local community college?+
Yes. Before you leave or sign-up for the class(es), you will need to fill out the transfer course permission form. You will then need to get it signed off by your advisor and the registrar. Please be aware that the process of signing up for a class at another institution can be lengthy. You will need to apply to that school, provide them with documentation (i.e. proof of residency, NMMI official transcript, etc.), and then you can usually sign up for classes. Once you’ve completed the class, you will need to order an official transcript from that school to be sent to the registrar here at NMMI in order for it to go towards your degree here.
How do I apply for graduation?+
Visit the Registrar on the 2nd floor of Lusk. He will evaluate your progress towards graduation and print your graduation application. After a couple of quick signatures, you will return that to the registrar, and everything will be set.All May and Summer graduates need to do this. If you are confused or don’t understand, please see your advisor for help.
What’s the difference between an Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degree?+
An Associate of Arts degree is more focused on non-math and science classes, such as social science, public speaking and history. Associate of Science is more focused on the math and science classes. It’s best to speak to your advisor about what interests you and they can better recommend which degree is best for you.
How do I make an appointment with my advisor?+
Follow this link and fill out the form. Your advisor will get back to you about possible days and times to meet.
What is a concentration?+
A concentration is an area of study that is more focused in a particular field. Similar to choosing a major at a 4-year college, you can receive your AA or AS degree with a specific concentration. You are not required to select a concentration. However, some courses are only open to students in that concentration. View the concentrations offered here and discuss the benefits of declaring a concentration with your advisor.
I have a question about NJCAA and/or NCAA eligibility. Who do I ask?+
Our Athlete Academic Advisor is well versed in athletics’ eligibility. Email him (Roberts1@nmmi.edu) or stop by his office in Toles, Room 142. If you have another advisor, such as for your concentration, you may still contactMAJ Roberts for eligibility information.
How do I withdraw from a class?+
First, speak with your teacher. Make sure they are aware you want to withdraw and there is no way to save your grade at that point. Once you have done that, you can email your advisor requesting to withdraw from the class. They will review to make sure it will not affect your eligibility or path to graduation. Once that is determined, your advisor will send your email to the Registrar who will officially withdraw you. You must continue to attend that class until you have been notified of the successful withdraw.
What is financial hold?+
Financial hold means you have an outstanding balance with the Business Office. Visit your Financial Aid advisor and check their site for more information here.
What is the schedule for finals?+
Find it on the Registrar’s page.
How can I learn more about careers?+
We have several ways for cadets to learn about careers:
- Visit the College and Career Center (in Toles)
- Take the course CCES 1001 – Career Exploration
- Use the Career Information System(CIS). The username is your cadet number with the 0’s. The password is 2013Nmmi (case sensitive). You can use CIS to complete career assessment, investigate colleges and careers, create a resume, and much more. If you have any problem accessing your account or would like more information about using CIS, contact Major Moore.
Will 9-week grades show up on my transcript?+
No. Nine-week grades are only for your knowledge and for the school to know your progress in classes. It will not be included in any official documentation from NMMI and will not affect your GPA.
What are the requirements to graduate?+
The following requirements must be met in order to graduate with an AA or AS:
- Cadet must earn at least 60 credit hours from the specific AA or AS degree.
- Cadet must complete all required courses as listed on the Graduation Application.
- College cadet must earn a minimum of 24 credit hours at NMMI and spend two semesters in residence.
- 2.0 minimum NMMI GPA
- No more than 4.0 PHEA (physical education and/or MSL PT) and 8.0 MUSC (music) credits will count towards graduation. Any credits over these limits will not count towards graduation requirement total and GPA calculation.
- The Collegiate Assessment of Academic Proficiency (CAAP) assessment test must be taken by all graduates in their last semester.
What if I took classes at another college?+
If you’re transferring from another school, you need to make sure we are aware of the credits you’ve completed. Failure to do this could result in taking unnecessary classes or repeating classes you’ve already received credit for. An official transcript from your last school(s) needs to be sent to the registrar in order to be reflected on your transcript here. Getting your official transcript to an advisor or a coach will not put those classes into your record, only the registrar can do that. Be sure to follow up with whoever you gave your official transcript to, to ensure it was received by the registrar’s office. For more information, visit the Registrar’s page.
I’m graduating from high school here (NMMI) and want to come back for college. What do I need to do now?+
When you apply for graduation from high school at NMMI, talk with the Registrar about your college plans. You may be assigned to a concentration advisor right then. If not, come see Major Moore (in Toles), who will meet with you to determine which college advisor will be the best for you. It is important to do this early, as you will want to make sure you have your choice of classes in the fall, and if you wait until fall to register for classes, you may have to make some compromises.
