Honors Graduation

Summer 2016 Graduation Deadline - - August 12, 2016 Deadline

The Office of the Registrar, in conjunction with all undergraduate colleges, operates a computerized degree evaluation system through software called DegreeWorks. The DegreeWorks system contains many useful tools for tracking your progress towards degree and planning your path towards degree completion.

DegreeWorks includes a degree progress report/advising support system that matches your completed and current UW course work (and any transfer courses you might have) with your degree requirements to determine your progress toward earning your degree. The Degree Evaluation audit powered by DegreeWorks is available on WyoRecords to students and faculty advisors.

To access your Degree Evaluation, log on to WyoRecords and find the tab for Registration. A link for Degree Evaluation will be listed under the Registration options. This link will direct you to the audit of your requirements within DegreeWorks.

The Degree Evaluation does not apply to students who entered the University prior to fall of 2009. The students should contact the Office of the Registrar to have the audit updated to reflect requirements in affect from before fall 2009. If you have questions about your Degree Evaluation, please contact your advisor for assistance. You may also contact the Office of the Registrar by calling (307) 766-5272 or by coming to the West Wing of Knight Hall.

Be sure to notify the Office of the Registrar in writing of your anticipated graduation date.  Please stop by our office to fill out an Anticipated Graduation Date form. You will need to complete a new form if your anticipated graduation date changes.
