Q: How do I apply for a scholarship?

A: Generally, the University of Wyoming offers scholarships based on merit, financial need, or to specific student populations. Be sure to file your FAFSA to be considered for financial need based awards in the following school year. All scholarships are awarded through the online application system called AcademicWorks.

Q: How and where can you check the balance of your dining dollars on your WYO ID?

A: If you have purchased a 12 a week, 15 a week, or unlimited dining plan from Residence Life and Dining Services (RL&DS) they will deposit funds into your Dining$$ debit (declining balance) account that is accessed using the WyoOne ID card. That money can be used at the RL&DS food outlets on campus, and some of the campus vending machines. Dining$$ any remaining funds will automatically be forfeited at the start of the new contract year.You can check the balance of your Dining$$ on

Q: Is printing free?

A: Each semester all enrolled students who have domain accounts are provided a $7.50 print credit. Students can print approximately 150 pages for free each semester. If the student does not use the entire $7.50 during that semester, any amount remaining will be rolled over to the next semester and added on to the quota. The $7.50 is not actually money that is deposited into any account. It is the monetary representation of 150 free black and white pages provided to enrolled students each semester. Since money is not deposited, no refunds are provided, and the credit cannot be transferred from one student account to another.

Q: When do you have to dip into your own money to print?

A: If you use the entire amount and needs to continue to print, you can pay for additional print quota though the Print Quota Increase utility or go to the pay station located in the Information Technology Center computer lab. This utility is an agreement for increases to their UWStudent print balance as needed instead of paying for print quota increases in advance. Each black and white single-sided print job is $0.05, and double-sided print jobs are $0.07 on average. Laser color prints are $0.50-1.25.

Quota increases will be available immediately. Information Technology will be processing the bills daily (Monday through Friday). The deposited amount will appear on a student's university bill.

Q: How can I make money while at college?

A: If you wish to work on campus, check with Human Resources about non work-study job opportunities. In addition, the city of Laramie has employment opportunities that are listed in the Laramie Boomerang classifieds.
