Your Nine Next Steps

1. Log into WyoWeb

The WyoWeb portal will contain all of your main information, including enrollment, financial aid, and scholarships. First, you will need your username and password. To view your checklist, there will be a link in the WyoRecords section; it will prompt you to log in with your username and password to view your information. Need help creating a username and password? Check out this video!  

2. Confirm your Enrollment

For First-Year Students entering in the fall semester, there is a $300 enrollment deposit that is due by May 1st at 11:59 pm MDT. If your plans change, the $300 enrollment deposit is refundable by May 1st at 11:59 pm MDT. There are no refunds after May 1st. Students admitted after May 1st, the enrollment deposit is due within three weeks of your acceptance and is non-refundable. This deposit holds your place in the incoming class and notifies the University of your intention to attend. Confirm your Enrollment today!

3. Check your UW Email

Once you confirm your enrollment at UW, we now recognize you as part of our community. Please check your WyoWeb account often to access your e-mail account. This e-mail address will have important updates, student event, deadlines, and financial aid information.

4. Apply for Housing

First-year students are required to live in UW residence halls during their initial two semesters. Complete your housing contract through WyoWeb. Here you may choose a desired Freshman Interest Group (FIG), provide your preference for a specific building or floor, and be matched with a compatible roommate. For further information about housing, please contact Residence Life and Dining.

5. Submit the MMR Form

All students must turn in their proof of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella vaccinations prior to course registration. You will not be able to register for semester classes if you have not met this requirement. For further information about the MMR vaccination requirement, please contact Student Health Service or fill out and submit the MMR Immunization Form.

6. Register for Orientation

Orientation is available for all new first-time freshmen. This is your chance to meet with your academic advisor, register for classes, explore UW services and connect with other students.

7. Financial Aid and Scholarships

Students who would like to be considered for need-based financial assistance must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This should be completed between January 1st and March 1st (for fall semester) or November 1st (for spring semester) to be considered for need-based aid and many of Wyoming’s scholarship programs. The priority deadline for financial aid is March 1. Visit the Financial Aid office for more information or phone (307) 766-2116. Students are encouraged to apply for UW scholarships at (live link to financial aid scholarship site). Deadlines and additional applications exist for many scholarship opportunities.

***** Priority Deadline is MARCH 1st, not MAY 1st.

8. Final Transcripts and Test Scores

Upon high school graduation or the last semester at your current institution, please have your final official transcripts sent to the UW Admissions Office. Any new test scores, AP/IB test results, and dual enrollment should also be sent to:
