Veteran Information

If you are a military or veteran student, attending the University of Wyoming for the first time, you are invited to attend The Student Veteran Cowboy Connect Transition Program.  This is not just another Orientation program, but a resource and information based introduction to everything “Veteran” on our UW campus.  This program was designed by student veterans to meet the needs, challenges, and interests of the student veteran.  We hope you will attend this most important introduction to the UW Veteran Program and meet the many people providing services and programming for our UW student veterans and their families. 

 Please contact the UW Veterans Services Center for more information and reserve your spot at the “UW Student Veteran Cowboy Connect” , 307-766-6908 or uw-vets@uwyo.edu .”

Below is the veteran program agenda. Veterans also take part in the rest of the Cowboy Connect program for Freshman or Transfer/Nontraditional students.
