Next Steps for Admitted Returning Students
Check Academic Standing at UW
If you left UW previously on academic probation, you will be required to obtain a 2.0 GPA at UW during your first semester to avoid academic suspension. If you are unsure as to your academic status with UW as you re-enroll, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (307) 766-5272.
If you left UW on academic suspension, in addition to completing the required admission actions above, you must also submit a Petition for Reinstatement to the academic department for which you belonged at the time of your departure from UW. The Petition for Academic Reinstatement can be downloaded at this link. To re-enroll, you will need to be admitted to UW AND reinstated by your academic department.
If you are returning to UW and have taken college courses elsewhere since your last enrollment at UW, you must be sure to have your final college transcripts sent directly to the UW Admissions Office when they become available. Your admission is not final until the final transcripts are received, which can hold up scholarships and financial aid.

Final Transcripts (if returning with transfer credits)
If you are returning to UW and have taken college courses elsewhere since you left UW, you must have your final college transcripts sent directly to the UW Admissions Office when they become available. Your admission is not final until the final transcripts are received, which can hold up financial aid.
Federal Financial Aid and Scholarships
Students who would like to be considered for need-based assistance must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The priority deadline for students entering in the fall is March 1. For more information, visit the Web site at www.uwyo.edu/sfa, or contact Student Financial Aid at (307) 766-2116. Students are encouraged to review and apply for UW scholarships. Deadlines exist for many scholarship opportunities.

While returning students are not required to live in university housing, affordable, convenient options do exist on campus. Visit the Web site at www.uwyo.edu/reslife-dining, or contact the main RLDS Office at (307) 766-3175 to learn more about residence halls and university apartments.
