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. Today the Division of Outreach Credit Programs, in partnership with the university's colleges and departments, 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, the division offers baccalaureate degree completion programs as well as certificate and graduate degree programs. 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 uses long-distance telephone lines and a centrally-located audio conferencing bridge to link as many as 120 class sites at a time. These courses can usually be delivered to any location. Audio conferencing courses may include recorded lectures as well as an online component that provides a number of communication and information sharing tools.

Video conferencing is an interactive technology enabling students at each site to see and hear each other and their instructor. Video conference courses can be delivered to specific sites in Wyoming. Video conference courses may include an online component.

Web-based and online courses are available “anytime, anyplace.” They are, however,  semester-based and often include specific times for student and faculty dialogue. Learning online is interactive and collaborative; students generally need to be online in class a few times each week throughout the semester. Students and instructors share discoveries and materials throughout each developmental step of the course using online communication tools such as e-mail, threaded discussions, document sharing, and live chat sessions.

Hybrid courses are delivered through a combination of web-based instruction and one or more other delivery methods.

Correspondence study courses, or print-based courses, meet the needs of site-bound students by offering a variety of study opportunities. These courses are designed to provide flexibility with open enrollment throughout the year, a more self-paced and independent study format, and nine months to complete each course.

Since 1976, the University of Wyoming at Casper (UW-Casper), in partnership with Casper College, has offered on-site courses and a slate of university degree programs in Casper. UW-Casper is also the location in Natrona County for statewide degree programs and classes offered through Outreach Credit Programs.

UW-Casper was established to meet the needs of students unable to move to Laramie. 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.
