Virtual Orientation

Orientation Logo

Welcome to the Cowboy Family!

We are excited for you to join us as a student at the University of Wyoming this fall. Virtual Orientation will provide you information about the many programs and services offered at UW, as well as the opportunity to make connections with other incoming students.

Schedule

Each week, new modules will be available on the online platform to provide you information about the week's awareness topic. We recommend going through the information posted to help you prepare for the start of the fall semester at UW.

How to access Orientation modules

Virtual Orientation will take place through the WyoLearn platform.  Go to bit.ly/uwyo-transfer-orientation to gain access. Click on Enroll; include your full name and personal email address then click Enroll in Course; follow the email verification process to complete your WyoLearn registration.

Advising

The University of Wyoming requires all students to meet with their academic advisor prior to registering for courses for the upcoming semester. If you have not already met with your advisor about fall class registration, please reach out to your college's Advising Center (listed below) to set-up for an advising appointment so you can register for your Fall 2020 classes. 

ZeeMee app

Even though Orientation is virtual this summer, we want to provide you an opportunity to meet other incoming students. We recommend downloading the ZeeMee app, join the Admitted Transfer Students channel, and connect with fellow transfer students.

Don't Forget...

  • Submit your immunization records for verification
UW requires students submit proof of two Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations. To be in compliance with the MMR immunization requirement, the immunization record must show your name, date of birth, and be signed on or after the date of the second MMR immunization by your medical provider or a representative of a health care agency.  Your immunization hold is not cleared until you have a green checkmark on your WyoWeb account.  Please contact Student Health Service if you have any questions at (307) 766-2132 or StudentHealth@uwyo.edu.
  • Math Placement
Most incoming students to the University of Wyoming are required to take the math placement exam (MPE) prior to registering for a math course. It is recommended that you take this test at least 7 days prior to your advising session and any retakes at least 24 hours prior. (This allows time to prepare, participate in online tutoring, and retest if desired.) 
Complete information about the Math Placement Exam, preparation materials and possible exceptions to the math placement testing policy can be found on the math department web page, https://www.uwyo.edu/mathstats/math-placement/. The site also includes a link to the testing site, “Get Started” button, and you may also follow the link from your WyoWeb check list when you are ready to take the test. 

The test is available online via your WyoWeb account. The cost is $15 plus tax for the ALEKS package and $10 for Honorlock Proctoring (per attempt).  The fees can be paid via a credit/debit card just prior to taking the exam.


Academic Advising

Each academic college, as well as the School of Energy Resources and the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, has an advising coordinator for transfer students; there is an advising coordinator for undeclared students, as well. When appropriate, they will help get you connected with your academic department and a faculty advisor.
