Advising & Registration - Basic BSN

Advising Process

  1. Find adviser

    • Verify current academic adviser through WyoWeb; be sure to select the current term.

    • Request adviser change if having problems/conflicts with assigned adviser or if advising needs are not being met. Contact Basic BSN advising office at, 307-766-4292, Room 335, School of Nursing, to request a change of adviser.

  2. Find out when advising takes place

    • Advising week is October 31-November 4, 2016 for spring 2017 registration.

    • Additional advising appointments may be offered in the week(s) around the UW scheduled Advising Week. (Check assigned academic advisor's sign-up calendar for available appointments.)

  3. Sign up for advising

    Advising appointments are scheduled through an electronic/online advising appointment sign-up system, TimeTrade. Students should adhere to the appointment schedule as posted by adviser unless prior arrangements have been made.

    Please note that advising appointments are scheduled for the Mountain (MDT) Time Zone. Be sure to make note of that time zone when scheduling advising appointment as well as within the appointment confirmation email in order to be on time for appointment. Advisers have experienced a few students whose devices (computers, phones) that were used to schedule appointments were potentially set up for a different time zone. Thus, students were either early or late for advising appointments. Be sure to make note on appointment confirmation that the time reflects the Mountain (MDT) Time Zone and not a different time zone.

    Follow directions within the links below for scheduling advising appointment with designated academic adviser. Students receive an appointment confirmation email confirming their scheduled appointment and should check to make sure that it reflects their designated adviser! (If students have any problems or questions about the process, they should contact Debbie Shoefelt at / 307-766-4292.)

  4. Preparing for advising appointment and what to bring

    • Basic BSN Program of Study (On the main Basic BSN program page, select the appropriate link that reflects your entry status for the program. Next, check out the "Courses/Program of Study" bullet for assistance in planning out your schedule. If more than one document is linked under the Courses/Program of Study bullet, be sure to select the appropriate document based on which University Studies you are identified under and following.)

    • Planned schedule of courses utilizing Advising Schedule Worksheet (download, fill out, and bring to advising appointment)

    • Degree Evaluations: review your online Degree Evaluation linked in your WyoWeb account. Your Degree Evaluation will also note which University Studies you are identified under. Bring any questions/concerns to the attention of the Basic BSN Advising Office (check out Degree Evaluations section below for additional information)

    • Questions

    • Paper/pen with which to take notes

  5. Canceling Advising Appointments

    • If students are using an Outlook calendar, their scheduled appointment is automatically inserted into their calendar. To cancel, students can simply delete the appointment from their Outlook; that action will generate an email to the advisor canceling the appointment.

    • If students are not using Outlook, they should email their academic adviser identifying that they need to cancel the appointment that was scheduled (it is important to identify the date/time) so that the adviser can cancel it out of their Outlook Calendar and potentially open the time back up to another student.

    • To schedule a new appointment, students should click back in to their designated academic adviser link above and follow the directions again in the TimeTrade calendar.

Degree Evaluations

The Office of the Registrar, in conjunction with all undergraduate colleges, operates a computerized degree evaluation system. This includes a degree progress report/advising support system that will match completed and current UW course work (and any transfer courses a student might have) with their degree requirements to determine their progress toward earning their degree. The Degree Evaluation audit is available to students and faculty advisers through WyoWeb. Please refer to the UW Class Schedule for additional information regarding Degree Evaluations (DegreeWorks - Student Degree Evaluation) along with how to access in WyoWeb.

Information specific to the School of Nursing with regards to Student Degree Evaluations:

  • The Basic BSN advising office routinely works with the Registrar's Office to keep the Basic BSN Degree Evaluation template current as curriculum changes occur. 

  • Students should be aware that the copy which they view/print out may not be 100% accurate. Clearing up discrepancies with regards to programming issues, general transfer credits, etc. is an ongoing process for the school. Questions/concerns, please contact the Basic BSN advising office at (307) 766-4292 or

  • It is ultimately the student's responsibility to be sure that all requirements are being cleared and satisfied on their Degree Evaluation so that they are eligible for graduation. Any discrepancies noted should be addressed with the Basic BSN advising office at (307) 766-4292 or or 335 Health Sciences Center.

  • Notify the Office of the Registrar in writing of anticipated graduation date. Access the "Anticipated Graduation Date" form listed on the Registrar's "Forms and Petitions for Students" page at Submit no later than the semester prior to the semester of anticipated graduation. Complete a new form if anticipated graduation date should change.


Registration for Spring 2017:

  • Registration begins November 2, 2016 for continuing students.

  • Registration begins December 5, 2016 for new and re-enrolling students.

  • Each student is assigned a designated time for accessing WyoWeb for completing their registration. Locate designated registration access date/time through 'Registration Status' link on WyoWeb within 'Registration Tools.' Please note that this information may not be accessible until advising week begins. Also obtainable during advising appointment.

  • WyoWeb Registration directions are found in the UW Class Schedule.

PERC Information

  • PERC (Personal Electronic Registration Code) is a 6-digit number that students enter to clear the Adviser Approval hold prior to registering for each term.

  • Students' PERC numbers will change every semester. They will be prompted to enter their PERC the first time they register for classes each semester.

  • Students must be advised by their adviser. At conclusion of advising appointment, they will receive their new PERC from their adviser.

  • If students misplace their PERC before they register, they should contact their adviser to obtain the number again.

  • Summer Registrations do not require a PERC for anyone in order to complete such registrations. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis once the summer registration access has opened for either on campus courses (typically first of February) and online/outreach courses (typically late March/early April).

"W" Numbers

  • The "W" number is a student's UW student identification number. It is a randomly assigned 8-digit number preceded by a W.

  • Refer to the UW Class Schedule for more information about the "W" number.

Student Medical Insurance

Each fall and spring semester students are required to make a selection through their WyoWeb account within 'Registration Tools' regarding Student Medical Insurance before they may register. Please refer to the UW Class Schedule for additional information.
