Tuition and Fees

Exchange Students (Tuition Waived)

If you are coming to UW as an Exchange student, you will not pay tuition or most fees.  You will be required to pay:

  • Application Fee ($50)
  • International Student Fee ($50)
  • Student Insurance (price varies by semester)
  • Housing*
  • Meals*


*Students participating in an ISEP program do not pay these to UW.  They are paid to your home university or directly to ISEP.  If you do not know what ISEP is, you are not an ISEP student.

Important:  When you register for classes, tuition and fees will automatically be charged to your student account.  If you are an exchange student, these fees will be removed after the university’s registration drop/add period.  This is not generally complete until the end of September for the fall semester, or late February for the spring semester.  If you are an exchange student, do not be concerned if you see tuition and fee charges on your account; they will be removed eventually.

Payment for charges can be made online via WyoWeb with a Visa or MasterCard, with cash at the Cashier’s Office on campus in Knight Hall (the Cashier’s Office does not accept credit cards), or through a bank transfer at Flywire.  It is not necessary for you to pay before you come to UW; payment can be made when you arrive.  If you pay at least 1/3 of your student bill when you arrive, you will be enrolled in a payment plan.  You can then pay the balance due over the next two months (for a total of 3 payments).  There is a $15 charge to be enrolled in this payment plan.

To see your charges, log in to WyoWeb.  Go to Your Student Account, and Account Summary by Term.  Your charges will be listed there.  Payment can be made by bank transfer, free of charge, on Flywire.

Study Abroad Students (Paying Tuition)

If you are coming to UW as a Study Abroad student, you will pay 150% of resident tuition and fees, in addition to the charges listed above.

Payment for charges can be made online via WyoWeb with a Visa or MasterCard, or with cash at the Cashier’s Office on campus in Knight Hall (the Cashier’s Office does not accept credit cards).  It is not necessary for you to pay before you come to UW.  Payment can be made when you arrive.  If you pay at least 1/3 of your student bill when you arrive, you will be enrolled in a payment plan.  You can then pay the balance due over the next two months (for a total of 3 payments).  There is a $15 charge to be enrolled in this payment plan.

To see your charges, log in to WyoWeb.  Go to Your Student Account, and Account Summary by Term.  Your charges will be listed there.  Payment can be made by bank transfer, free of charge, on Flywire.

Books

One of the most surprising things for international student coming to the U.S. is the cost of textbooks.  This cost can be quite high for some students ($200-$600), so it is important that you are prepared.  The University Store has a list of books required for all classes online at https://www.uwyostore.com/buy_courselisting.asp.

After you answer a few questions, this web site can provide you with a price comparison for books from a number of different web sites. You can even purchase books from other online stores directly from the University Store web site!

In some cases, you will also have the option of renting books or purchasing electronic copies.  These are not always available, but can be cheaper than buying the books.

One final option is to check the UW Library to see if the book you need is available there.  If it is, you can borrow it from the Library at no cost (once you arrive on campus).  Just remember to return the book to the Library before you return home, or you will be charged for it!

There is a book buy-back period at the end of each semester.  If you have purchased textbooks and would like to sell them, this is the fastest and easiest way.  Simply take your books to the lower level of the Union (follow the signs), to the buy-back windows.  There, your books will be evaluated, and you will be offered cash for them.  Be sure to take your student ID card with you – this is required!  Please be aware that they may not buy all of your books, and, most importantly, they will not give you as much as you paid.
