Policies

  • Inform an enrolled covered individual of the availability of federal financial aid, not administered by VA that is offered by the institution.
  • Alert the individual of the potential eligibility for other federal financial aid before packaging or arranging student loans or alternative financing.
  • Prohibit automatic renewal of a covered individual in a course and/or programs.
  • To obtain a Veteran’s Registration Card, please email us at vafinaid@uwyo.edu, or call us at 307-766-2525.
  • Ensure each covered individual approves of the enrollment in a course.
  • All students must be advised and receive a pin prior to enrollment. Listed below are the contact for Advising Coordinators by College/School:
  • Allow enrolled members of the Armed Forces, including reserve components and National Guard to be readmitted if such members are temporarily unavailable or must suspend enrollment by reason of serving in the Armed Forces.

Readmission for Military Service Members

The University of Wyoming acknowledges that students may be temporarily unable to attend classes or be required to suspend their studies in order to perform military service. UW encourages such students to resume their education once a military service obligation has ended and adopts this policy to ensure the timely readmission of such students.

In accordance with federal regulations, 34 C.F.R. 668.18 and the Department of Defense (DOD) Voluntary Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), the university will promptly readmit service members who seek readmission to a program that was interrupted due to a uniformed service obligation.

Student Responsibility

The student must provide oral or written notice of a uniformed service obligation to the Veterans Service Center as far in advance as possible, unless precluded by military necessity. Such notice does not need to indicate when the student will return to the university.

Tuition and Fees

A returning student must be charged the same tuition and fees in effect during the last academic year the student attended, unless veteran’s education benefits or other service member education benefits will pay the amount in excess. For subsequent academic years, the returning student may not be charged tuition and fees in excess of what other students in the program are charged.

Readmission Requirements

A returning student will be permitted to reenroll in the next semester scheduled in the same academic program, unless the student requests a later date of reenrollment or agrees to a different program. A returning student will be readmitted into the same academic program the student was enrolled in prior to the military service or the student requests admission to a different program.

If the university determines that a returning student is not prepared to resume the program or is unable to complete the program, the university must make reasonable efforts to enable the student to resume or complete the program at no additional cost to the student. If such efforts are unsuccessful or place an undue hardship on the university, the university is not required to readmit the student.

In accordance with federal regulations, returning students who receive a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge from the Armed Forces (including the National Guard and Reserves) are not eligible for readmission under this policy. However, service members who receive dishonorable or bad conduct discharge may remain eligible for readmission even though they will not be entitled to the benefits outlined in this policy.

University of Wyoming Catalog

  • Accommodate short absences for such services in the Armed Forces.
  • University of Wyoming Catalog (academic year specific)
    • In accordance with federal regulations, 34 C.F.R. 668.18 and the Department of Defense (DOD) Voluntary Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), the university will promptly readmit service members who seek readmission to a program that was interrupted due to a uniformed service obligation.
  • Schools must provide covered individuals with the requirements for graduation and a graduation timeline.
    • Degree Evaluations via Office of the Registrar
  • Accredited educational institutions agree to obtain approval of the respective accrediting agency for each new course or program
    • The University of Wyoming is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), validating the quality of the institution as a whole- including its academic offerings, governance, administration, mission, finance, and resources.
  • Schools must designate an employee of the educational institution to serve as a point of contact for covered individuals and family members seeking assistance with:
  • Other information regarding completing a course of education at the education institution
    • Additional information is listed in the Academic Catalog.
