A few important things to know about your account:

  • Any change made to your class schedule will affect your balance!
  • Anytime you add charges to your account such as IT print quotas, bookstore purchases, etc. it will affect your balance!
  • For wait-listed classes: charges for tuition and fees associated with that class or classes will not go onto your account unless you have successfully gotten into the class. 
  • If you were able to get into a wait-listed class, CHECK YOUR ACCOUNT because your balance will be affected!
  • Refunds are processed daily - you may have charges added to your account AFTER you are refunded.  Be sure to check your account and make sure you do not have any other charges on your account after you receive a refund.

What is FERPA?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. According to this law, college students are considered responsible adults and are allowed to determine who will receive information about their education records/student account. Parents are NOT automatically granted access to their student's records without written consent of the student.

For more information on FERPA, please visit www.uwyo.edu/registrar/ferpa/

Accounts Receivable, Financial Aid, and the Registrar each have separate FERPA forms that would need to be signed by the student before we may speak with anyone about their account.

**Setting up your parent or guardian as an Authorized User is the same as having an electronic FERPA form with the Accounts Receivable office!**
