Onboarding for Incoming Students

What to Expect as your Prepare to Attend UW

Onboarding is how we create an overarching experience for new students who are attending the University of Wyoming for the upcoming fall semester. Instead of hosting a single orientation day in the summer, we have created a three-part onboarding opportunity for you to get excited about your journey to UW along with informational and engaging experiences that prepare you for college student life!




The Onboarding Process

Admitted Student Days

If you were unable to attend one of our Admitted Student Day events, don't panic! New first-time students should continue to check their email (including spam/junk folders) for communication from their advisor about setting up a virtual advising appointment.

Summer Webinar Series

We'll be hosting a series of short webinars for families and new students to get specific details about resources for new students. You won't want to miss these!

Admitted Student Days

Thank you to everyone who attended one of our Admitted Student Day events this spring. These events helped students get ready for exciting times at UW by giving them a closer look at what we have to offer, including:

  • Connecting with the program in which they're interested.
  • Discovering student job opportunities
  • Taking care of pre-registration details, including class registration.
  • Meeting other admitted students and learning more about campus!

For those who were unable to attend, continue to check your email (including spam/junk folders) for communication from your advisor about setting up a virtual advising appointment. 





Summer Webinar Series for New Students

As part of your journey to the University of Wyoming, we will be hosting virtual onboarding for incoming students throughout the summer. This is an excellent time for you and your family to sit down together for short online sessions that cover all you need to know including parking, student ID, and other services!

All webinars will take place at 6 p.m. Mountain Time.

Saddle Up is a required camp for first-year students that will help you develop skills necessary for success in college.
