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 Completion Program 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 Completion Program 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 Completion Program 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.


The spring 2018 registration period for distance students begins November 1; PERC numbers are not required for registration.

  • Register as soon as possible

    Space in the RN-BSN Completion Program nursing courses is intended for RN-BSN Completion Program students. Therefore all RN-BSN Completion Program students are strongly encouraged to be advised and registered as soon as possible after registration for classes opens each semester. For priority enrollment in RN-BSN nursing courses, please note the following semester deadlines to enroll. If enrollment should take place after semester deadline, space in the course cannot be guaranteed. These deadlines also apply to the student who will be required to submit a School of Nursing petition to seek enrollment in a nursing major course without meeting the course prerequisites.

    • Fall semester: May 15

    • Spring semester: November 15

    • Summer semester: April 15

  • Late Enrollment

    Based on the Drop/Add policy for RN-BSN Completion Program 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) granted there is space in the course. At the close of business on the fifth business day, all students remaining on waitlists for nursing courses will be removed from the waitlist option and either enrolled or dropped, pending eligibility. Those who have not yet registered for nursing courses will lose the opportunity to register, and the courses will be closed.

  • Registration for courses

    Consult the Office of the Registrar website and class schedules for registration and calendar/deadlines information at the following link:

  • Register for PHCY 3450 (Previous course was titled PHCY 4450)

    Students need to contact the RN-BSN Completion Program office at 307-766-6574 or for assistance to enroll.

The course prerequisites include an approved Human Physiology course, LIFE 1010 and CHEM 1000 or 1020.

  • Register for Nursing courses

    The RN-BSN Completion Program nursing courses have specified prerequisites identified in the system so that the system is tracking for those requirements along with the RN-BSN Completion Program major code and registration attributes in order to allow students to register for their appropriate courses. Students will need to enter the CRN for all of the courses in which they are seeking to register and click on the submit button within the Add/Drop screen.

  • 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 RN-BSN Capstone Project course at the beginning of the semester. Continued enrollment in the RN-BSN Capstone Project course will be contingent upon receipt of RN licensure by the UW drop deadline, approximately 8 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.
