Registration Information

UW Mathematics

Why can't I register for a Math Class on WyoWeb?

University of Wyoming's Mathematics Department offers registration tools and information

Once early registration ends, usually two weeks prior to the start of classes, math courses are closed for registration via WyoWeb. This allows prerequisites for all early registrants to be verified. If you do not meet the prerequisite requirements for the course you will receive a notice of Administrative drop via your UW email account. All math course registration after this date, including section changes, must be done via the Math Registration Request Form. WyoWeb will redirect you to this form or you can access the form via the link below to begin the registration process.

What I should know about the Registration Request Form? 

Each form received is time stamped and will be processed in the order it is received. Prerequisites, schedule conflicts and account holds are verified prior to processing each request to ensure enrollment eligibility. You will be notified, via your UW email address when your request has been processed or if there is additional information needed in order to process your request.  

  1. BE PATIENT - It may take up to 3 business days to process your request. We understand it is important to you and we are working to make it happen. There is no need to submit the request multiple times, each form is processed in the order it is received according to the time stamp.
  2. CHECK your UW email - We will notify you once we have processed your request. If we cannot fulfill your request or need additional information or need to make other requests or suggestions we will contact you via your email. The sooner you reply the sooner your request can be completed.
  3. ATTEND - You should plan to attend the course you are requesting to be enrolled in while waiting for your email confirmation of enrollment, if appropriate. 





Why Did I Get Dropped?   -   See a List  of reasons for administrative drop.

Administrative drop is a tool used by the department to remove a student from enrolled status in a specific course. The drop notice will be proceeded by a warning, to the student's UW email account, informing the student of the risk and acceptable resolutions to the problem. If the student acts, timely, to resolve the risk then the drop is avoided, however if the warning is not responded to or the student is unable to comply with the resolution the student will receive an administrative drop notice. 

The two (2) most common reason for administrative drop are related to prerequisite requirements. They are identified below along with some pro-active resolutions to prevent this problem before it occurs: 

  1. Transfer Student: Transcripts are used to verify that a student has taken an eligible prerequisite. If there has been a delay in receiving your transcripts or if they have not been added to your student record prior to registration, this would cause a prerequisite error to occur.

    Incoming transfer students can avoid this error by submitting an unofficial copy of their transcripts to the mathematics department located in Ross Hall room 202 or by email to Please be sure your W# and Name appear on the document or on your email to ensure proper routing.

  2. Math Placement Exam: The math placement exam score can act as a prerequisite for math courses. The score you receive on the exam relates directly to the prerequisite necessary for a specific math course. Please refer to page 4 of the Math Placement Information brochure for detailed information.

    If your qualifying ACT or SAT score is more than 3 years old, or your Math Placement Exam score is more than 1 year old, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO TAKE A MATH PLACEMENT EXAM to enroll in all math courses above level 0900, unless you have a qualifying prerequisite math course already on your transcript. This test may also re-taken to improve your placement score.

    DON'T WAIT - TAKE YOUR MATH PLACEMENT EXAM - Get online via your WyoWeb checklist, if you have not taken the UW-Online exam before or schedule an appointment to take proctored version in the math department by contacting Leslie Roan at 307-766-4221 or
