Full-Time Student Benefits

The University considers you full-time student if you are enrolled for at least 9 credit hours. If you wish to enroll in fewer than 9 credit hours and you are an international student, you must fill out the Optional Fee Package Petition form.  If you are a domestic student, doing so is optional.  Approval of this form will allow graduate students who qualify to purchase the optional student fee package and be considered a full-time student for the indicated semester for student loan deferment and insurance/government documents.  The package allows access to Student Health Services, UW athletic events, ASUW membership, and access to Campus Recreation facilities/activities.

 

The package is required of part-time students who wish to purchase the UW student medical insurance.

 

To be eligible, a degree-seeking graduate student must be enrolled in fewer than 9 credit hours during the fall or spring semester and be one of the following:

  1. Master’s degree student who has 90% of his/her coursework completed, has a program of study on file with the Office of the Registrar, is registered for at least one credit hour, and is working full-time on thesis research or a Plan B paper
  2. PhD. student who has passed his/her preliminary exams (and has the appropriate paperwork on file with the Office of the Registrar), is registered for at least one credit hour, and is working full-time on dissertation research

 

Students without an assistantship who are enrolled in fewer than 9 hours will be automatically charged for the Optional Student Fee Package.  If students do not want the full-time student benefits, they must waive this on WyoWeb.  Students with an assistantship who are enrolled in fewer than 9 hours will also be automatically charged for the Optional Student Fee Package. However, if a student wants the assistantship to pay for it, the student must fill out the Optional Graduate Student Fee Package Petition form available on the Graduate Student Resources web site.
