The University of Wyoming was the first university west of the Missouri to offer correspondence courses. For over a century UW has sent its faculty across the state to meet with citizens, students, teachers, business owners, ranchers, and farmers to help them learn. In partnership with the university's colleges and departments, UW extends the university learning experience to students across the nation with audio and video conferencing, independent learning via correspondence or semester based, and Web-based or online instruction.

Using on-site, online, and mediated instruction, baccalaureate degree completion programs as well as certificate and graduate degree programs are available. Upper division undergraduate- and graduate-level courses are also offered to satisfy continuing professional education requirements or to meet requests for professional development. The division also offers a wide variety of educational opportunities for teachers in collaboration with the College of Education and school districts.

Audio conferencing courses meet via phone and are connected using a centrally located audio conferencing bridge. These courses can usually be delivered to any location and will likely include streamed, recorded lectures and an online component.

Web conferencing courses are “real time” interactive (video/audio) courses that meet regularly (most often, weekly) throughout the semester. What distinguishes these courses is that instructors may ask that you attend from a specific site. However, if that is not feasible, these courses can now be delivered to your mobile devices or computers if you have a webcam, a microphone, and a high-speed Internet connection. If you are near a designated site, and would like to attend from your home or office, consult with your instructor and the department.

Fully online courses are available anywhere, anytime, as long as you have consistent Internet connectivity. They are semester based and will require accessing the course several times a week, and may require participation in scheduled, weekly web conferencing sessions, which should be evident upon registration. Online courses use various online communication tools for sharing content between the instructor and the students, including but not limited to, email/messaging, streaming video, web conferencing, document sharing, chat rooms, and discussion forums.

Correspondence Study courses are self-paced courses that meet the needs of place-bound or “schedule-bound” students. A variety of core, lower division courses are available. Correspondence Study provides flexibility through an open enrollment, independent learning format with a nine-month completion deadline.

Some of these students are nontraditional students who may be older or have families, homes, or jobs in the Casper area. UW-Casper is designed to meet the academic needs of students in a setting providing small classes, dedicated staff, and award-winning faculty. Courses are taught by resident and visiting faculty who are regular or part-time members of UW academic departments. A full-service office handles admission, registration, financial aid, and advising.
