If you’re new to campus, it can be confusing where you need to go for what. Here are a few places you need to know as you get started. 

What’s a Registrar?

The Office of the Registrar is located on the ground floor of Knight Hall and maintains student and course records. Among other things, registrars typically register students for classes, schedule space and times for classes, ensure that students meet graduation requirements, process grades and prepare transcripts and diplomas for students, produce data about students and classes, maintain the academic records of the institution, ensure student data privacy requirements are met, calculate academic standing for actively registered students and process enrollment verifications.

Show Me the Money

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid serves to guide students and their families in the application for and receipt of student loans, grants, scholarships and other types of financial aid. Financial aid advisers are available and can be reached in person (Knight Hall, Room 174) or via phone or email. Visit for your specific advisor’s contact information. 

Want to Get Involved?

The Center for Student Involvement and Leadership provides student engagement opportunities. Through the center, students can join or create student organizations, volunteer locally or globally, serve as student leaders, write for the student newspaper, join a fraternity or sorority, and plan entertainment events for campus. Primarily located on the lower level of the Wyoming Union, the center has a website featuring upcoming events, ways to get involved, and a social media directory of the offices within CSIL (
