This benefit is awarded for as long as the student is enrolled at UW, and applies to undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional work.

Because of the deep discounts provided by this program, it cannot be combined with the Rocky Mountain Scholars Award or the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE). Eligible students are encouraged to also pursue merit, talent, and UW Alumni Association scholarships. To be considered, students should indicate on their admission application they are the child of a UW graduate.
To apply for the Child of Alumni discount, students must:
- Apply for admission and submit the non-refundable $40 admission application fee
- Be sure to provide alumni parent information requested on the admission application
- Submit official high school and/or college transcripts
- Submit official ACT/SAT test scores
- Be admitted to UW
+ Residents of Wyoming who are children of UW graduates receive the best rate possible in the way of resident tuition. These students will be considered for the Wyoming Scholars and Trustees' Scholars Awards as incoming freshmen, or the John W. Hoyt Scholarship if they are transferring to UW.
The University of Wyoming Alumni Association is proud to offer a variety of scholarships for children of UW Alumni. These scholarships do require a separate application.
