The Transfer Experience


Each student’s experience is unique at the University of Wyoming. We know our transfer students tend to succeed the best when they can be connected with other peers off the bat. That’s why we have a designated group of Transfer Peer Mentors who can help our incoming transfer students make connections across the university.

 

 

Getting Ready to Apply


The University of Wyoming strives to make obtaining your degree affordable and accessible. That’s why our undergraduate admission is on a “rolling basis”, meaning you can apply at any time for the upcoming semester. This timeline will help you to start thinking about everything you need to prepare as you get ready to apply. And as always, we’re here to help if you have any questions!

Step 1

COMPLETE A PRE-TRANSFER CREDIT EVALUATION


Using unofficial transcripts, we will conduct a pre-transfer evaluation of the course credits you have already earned. This will help you evaluate what credits could transfer to UW, but note that an official evaluation will be completed upon your admittance to UW by our registrar’s office using your official transcripts.

 

GET STARTED

 

Step 2

DISCOVER TRANSFER STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS


Prior to your first undergraduate experience, you likely filled out a FAFSA application. If your financial situation has changed since then, be sure to complete a new one as this helps you become eligible for financial aid opportunities from UW, and is a critical step in ensuring you are finding the most affordable path to college. Once you’re admitted, you’re also conditionally awarded any financial commitments from UW!

Step 3

You can apply online or through the Common Application if you're also applying to other schools. There is a low $40 non-refundable application fee to apply and it takes about 10 minutes.

 

Step 4

SUBMIT YOUR OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS


Have your official transcripts sent directly from your current college’s registrar office to us at:
