Advising & Registration - RN/BSN Completion

Advising Process

Find adviser:

  • Students verify their current academic adviser through WyoWeb; students should be sure that they select the current term.

  • Prior to formal admittance to the nursing major component, if students are needing guidance regarding coursework, they should contact the RN/BSN Completion office as follows:
    - Email:
    - Phone: (307) 766-6574 or 1(800)448-7801, make selection 1, then request ext. 6574

Schedule an advising appointment:

  • Students are expected to contact their adviser on a semester basis via email or telephone.

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 advisors through WyoWeb. Please refer to the Office of the Registrar website for additional information regarding Degree Evaluations along with how to access in WyoWeb.

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

  • The RN/BSN advising office routinely works with the Registrar's Office to keep the RN/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 RN/BSN advising office at (307) 766-6574 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 RN/BSN advising office.

  • 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 preceding the semester of anticipated graduation. Complete a new form if anticipated graduation date should change.


Early Registration for RN/BSN Courses

  • Register as soon as possible

    Space in the RN/BSN nursing courses is intended for RN/BSN Completion students. Therefore all RN/BSN Completion students are strongly encouraged to be advised and registered as soon as possible after registration for classes opens each semester.

  • Registration for courses

    Consult the Outreach Credit Programs Calendar at [You may need to scroll down for current semester calendar.]

  • Sign up for the "Waitlist" option

    All RN/BSN nursing major courses are monitored by controlled enrollment. Students are required to sign up for the waitlist option, which is reviewed by the RN/BSN Completion office. Students are encouraged to monitor their enrollment in WyoWeb and are notified through their UWYO email account when they are moved from the waitlist. Students should refer to the Outreach Credit Programs class schedule for course and registration information.

  • Deadline for enrolling

    Based on the Drop/Add Policy for RN/BSN nursing courses, students can be added to nursing courses for up to five business days after the start of each semester (fall, spring, and summer). At the close of business on the fifth business day, all students remaining on waitlists for nursing courses will be removed and the waitlist option will be closed.

  • New ADN graduate seeking enrollment in NURS 4985

    Based on the Drop/Add policy for NURS 4985, a student who has recently graduated with an ADN degree from a Wyoming Community college and has not yet obtained RN licensure may be enrolled in the Capstone Project course at the beginning of the semester. Continued enrollment in the Capstone Project course will be contingent upon receipt of RN licensure by the UW drop deadline, approximately 10 days after the first day of class. If the requirement to submit RN licensure has not been met by the end of the drop deadline, the student will be dropped from the course.

"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.

  • For more information about the "W" number, refer to the Outreach School Class Schedule.

Wyoming Student Medical Insurance

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