1. Apply for Your Student Visa

Once you have received your Form I-20 and other materials from UW, you must apply for a F-1 visa at the US consulate.

It is recommended that you allow plenty of time to obtain the F-1 visa foil from the U.S. embassy or consulate. The U.S. Department of State has indicated that the process of issuing visas to some individuals might be considerably delayed due to security clearances. Please note: Receipt of the Form I-20 from UW does not guarantee that you will receive a visa foil from a U.S. consulate.

Do not make travel reservations until you have obtained your visa. Individual consulate/embassy visa processing times may be found on the State Department Web at: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/general/wait-times.html.


2. Log into your interactive checklist on WyoWeb

The WyoWeb portal will contain all of your main information, including enrollment, financial aid, and scholarships. First, you will need your username and password. To view your checklist, there will be a link in the WyoRecords section; it will prompt you to log in with your username and password to view your information. Need help creating a username and password? Check out this video!


3. REQUIRED New International Student Welcome

New international students must complete parts A and B of the New International Student Welcome. These sessions are in addition to any orientation programs required by the University of Wyoming or your individual departments.

A. Online (Prior to U.S. Arrival)

You will receive an email containing the link to complete the online introduction. You must complete this before you arrive in the U.S. If you have been admitted and have not recieved the link for the online international student introduction, please email uwglobal@uwyo.edu.

The on-campus welcome will be during the week before classes start. The Welcome for Spring 2022 will be January 14, 2022, from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m, and a light breakfast will be provided. You will receive more information after you check in with ISS.


4. Advising and Registration

The University of Wyoming has a mandatory advising policy for all students. Contact your department of study or review the college information on the UW Academic Departments page for your department to learn more about getting advised so you can register for classes.

New students can contact their departments to discuss class registration prior to traveling to the United States.
