We welcome all students to apply and will consider each student based on their individual academic achievement. Be sure and submit your one-time nonrefundable $40 application fee, official high school transcripts sent directly from your school, and official ACT or SAT test scores for admission consideration. However, in support of the land-grant ideals, we welcome Holistic Admissions at the University of Wyoming. UW President Sternberg explains, "...as a land-grant institution, we are most interested not in input credentials at the time of entrance, but rather in the value UW can add through the educational experience the university provides.”
