Congratulations! You are now a Cowboy!

Now that you have been admitted to the University of Wyoming, there are a few items that you will need to complete to enroll as an official Wyoming student and to help better prepare you for the start of your college experience.

Below is a checklist to assist you in a smooth transition to college life. You can also view your account on Destination You-W at WyoWeb to track your progress.

Follow these steps and you will be all set for the upcoming semester!

1. Log into your Destination You-W interactive checklist from WyoWeb

This WyoWeb portal will contain all of your main information, including enrollment, financial aid, and scholarships. The "Checklist" tab will help you see what you need to complete before starting classes. Once you open the link, select "Click here to get your Username and Initial Password." Once you create your account, you will have access to a personal "Checklist" tab which will walk you through required steps. Please make sure you have all green check-marks before arriving in Laramie! The items listed below will also appear on your Destination You-W checklist tab as reminders

2. Confirm your enrollment

Undergraduate, bachelor's degree-seeking, students only (exchange students do not need to confirm). This is a required step that lets us know that you intend to enroll at UW.  If you are unable to pay the fee at this time, continue to confirm your enrollment without submitting payment.

3. Mandatory Orientation

Attendance at this essential program is required of all new international students. It will be held on January 9th and 10th, 2014. You must also check-in with International Students and Scholars in Suite 5, basement of Cheney International Center anytime between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM immediately after your arrival in Laramie. Please bring all of your immigration documents with you.

4. Apply for Housing

If you plan to live on campus, apply immediately. If you will live off-campus, start your apartment search now. All freshmen (1st-year, bachelor's degree-seeking students) are required to live on campus.

5. Submit the MMR Immunization Form

All students must provide proof of two doses of MMR immunization before registering for classes. International students may also need to undergo tuberculosis testing after arrival at UW. For further information about the MMR vaccination requirement, please contact Student Health Service.

6. Math Placement Exam

Only required for freshmen and some other undergraduate students. If you need to take this exam, it will show up on your Destination You-W checklist. Information from this exam will be used to place these students in math or math-related classes.  You may take this exam on-campus when you arrive or online.

7. Advising and Registration

The University of Wyoming has a mandatory advising policy for all students (except non-degree graduate and outreach students). Contact your department of study or review the college information on the checklist tab of Destination You-W on WyoWeb to learn more about getting advised so you can register for classes.

Once you have been advised and given your Personal Electronic Registration Code (PERC), you may register for classes through your Destination You-W account on WyoWeb under the To-Do Items on your "Checklist" tab.

8. Submit Final Transcripts

To finalize your admissions, scholarships, and financial aid, please have final official transcripts sent to the UW Admissions Office. You can verify this process has been completed through your Destination You-W account on WyoWeb.
