UW Orientation

Students socializing on Prexies Pasture

The University of Wyoming has a mandatory advising policy for all students (except non-degree graduate and distance students). Some colleges utilize professional advising staff, while in some colleges faculty advise students. Either way, each semester a student must see his or her advisor to discuss a schedule of classes before he or she can register. Advisors are the only individuals authorized to release PERC (Personal Enrollment Registration Code) numbers each semester.

    • Upload a picture for your WyoOne Student ID (this may take a few days to upload, so please plan ahead and do this early).

  • Before you are able to register for classes, you must completed the following:
    • send in your MMR vaccination records,
    • submit official transcripts to date from every college/university you have attended even if it was only for one class or you withdrew/failed, and
    • take your math placement exam, if necessary.

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. These individuals are available to assist you if you are not able to attend a Transfer, Non-Traditional, or Veteran Student Orientation. When appropriate, they will help get you connected with your home academic department and a faculty advisor.
