Congratulations! Now that you have been admitted to the University of Wyoming, there are a few items that you will need to complete to enroll as an official Wyoming student and to help you better prepare for the start of college.
Below is a checklist to assist you in a smooth transition to life at the University of Wyoming. You can also view your account on Destination You-W at WyoWeb to track your progress. The Destination You-W link becomes available in February for students attending UW during the summer or fall semesters, and in October for students starting in the spring semester.
To create this account you will need your University W number. This information will be included in your admissions acceptance letter and will provide you main access to WyoWeb. The WyoWeb portal will contain all of your main information, including: enrollment, financial aid, and scholarships.
For Transfer Students entering in the fall semester, there is a $300 enrollment deposit that is due by May 1st. If your plans change, the $300 enrollment deposit is refundable through May 1st. For students applying after May 1st, the enrollment deposit is due within three weeks of your admissions acceptance and is non-refundable. This deposit holds your place in the incoming class and “alerts” the University of your intention to attend. The deposit includes your $100 damage deposit for your Residence Hall Room and the additional $200 is a prepayment towards your student tuition and fees.
All students must turn in proof of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella vaccination prior to course registration. You will not be able to register for semester classes if you have not met this requirement. For further information about the MMR vaccination requirement, please contact Student Health Service.
To finalize your admissions, scholarships, and financial aid, please have final official transcripts sent to the UW Admissions Office. You can verify this process has been completed through your Destination You-W account on WyoWeb.University of Wyoming Admissions
Students who would like to be considered for need-based financial assistance must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This should be completed between January 1st and March 1st before you begin school to be considered for need-based aid and many of Wyoming’s scholarship programs. If you have completed the FAFSA, please visit Student Financial Aid - Award Notice for information on viewing and accepting your financial aid.
Learn more about accessing your transfer credit evaluations on your Destination You-W checklist on WyoWeb.
Before students may register for classes, you are required to accept or decline UW Student Medical Insurance.
The University of Wyoming has a mandatory advising policy for all students (except non-degree graduate and outreach students). Contact your department of study or review the college information on the checklist tab of Destination You-W on WyoWeb to learn more about getting advised so you can register for classes.
Once you have been advised and given your Personal Electronic Registration Code (PERC), you may register for classes through your Destination You-W account on WyoWeb under the To-Do Items on your checklist tab.
If you are not transferring in college-level math credit, you made need to take the Math Placement Exam (MPE). You can take the MPE through your Destination You-W checklist on WyoWeb.
If you have taken high school level classes in a foreign language but have not earned college or AP/IB credit, you may be able to place into a higher level to begin.
Payment for university charges are due the first week of the semester. Installment options exist.
Textbooks can be ordered online and either shipped to you or picked up when you arrive on campus.University Store
Transportation: There are several options for transportation to Laramie.
IDs: Students may upload their photo online with Destination You-W on WyoWeb. Your card will be printed over the summer and will be available for pickup when you check into your residence hall in the fall. Students who are not living in the residence halls need to stop by the ID Office in Knight Hall Room 28 to pick up your student ID; it will be available approximately two weeks before the start of the fall semester. Photo uploads need to be completed about a month before the semester begins (for example, in July for students starting fall semester).
Students are also welcome to stop by the WyoOne ID Office once you have been admitted to have your photo taken.
While transfer students are not required to live in university housing or participate in a meal plan option, there are affordable and convenient options on campus for living. Contact the Residence life and Dining Services Office at (307) 766-3175 for more information about meals, university apartments, and residence halls.
