How Can We Help You?
As the only university in the state of Wyoming, and a leader in higher education in the region, the Admissions Office feels it is part of our mission and responsibility to provide services beyond recruiting qualified students and helping them in the transition to UW. As such, we spend much of our time working with partners in schools and communities as they work to encourage participation in, and preparation for college in general.
We hope that you will take advantage of our expertise and willingness to help you encourage and prepare students for higher education. Below is a "menu of services" that we are able to provide to various constituents in Wyoming and around the region. If we can provide any of the following services or information, please let us know. Need something that's not on the list, let's talk!
