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 adviser is not meeting advising needs. 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 March 27-31, 2017 for fall 2017 registration.

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

  3. Sign up for advising

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

    Please note that scheduled advising appointments are 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) were potentially set up for a different time zone that they used to schedule appointments. 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.

    Scheduling Guidelines

    • Read the adviser's "Welcome Message" and continue to their calendar

    • Click on a highlighted date and it will display times available

    • Select a time that works for your schedule and follow remaining steps

    • The system is set up to prevent ability of signing up for an appointment on the same day in which making the appointment; so please plan accordingly.

      • Otherwise, you can potentially sign up for an appointment up until midnight the night before.

      • Please be sure to sign up for your advising appointment as soon as possible.

    • The system does not allow scheduling for more than one appointment for the same time spot.

      • Please be sure that your selection completely finalizes and that you have received a confirmation email confirming that appointment

      • If more than one person happens to be trying to schedule the same time, it all depends on which one clicks first into the system as to who gets the appointment time. So be sure that your appointment selection truly did schedule.

    • Students receive an appointment confirmation email confirming their scheduled appointment and should check to make sure that it reflects their designated adviser.

      • Be sure to make note of your appointment in your planner/calendar and that it is for the correct time zone as noted above!

      • Most importantly, DO NOT forget to show up for the appointment you have scheduled.

    • 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.
