UW Orientation

Students socializing on Prexies Pasture

The University of Wyoming has a mandatory advising policy for all students (except non-degree graduate and distance students). Each semester a student must see his or her advisor to discuss a schedule of classes before he or she can register. Advisors are the only individuals authorized to release PERC (Personal Enrollment Registration Code) numbers each semester.

Fall 2020 Orientation on the Laramie Campus

  • Wednesday, June 10
  • Wednesday, June 24

Orientation registration is open.  Students must confirm their enrollment and pay their deposit prior to being able to register.  Please note, it may take up to one business day after you pay your enrollment deposit for your Orientation link to become active on your account.  Click here to login to your WyoRecords account and then click the Orientation Signup link to begin. 

Starting May 1, please reach out to your college's Advising Center (listed below) to set-up an advising appointment so you can register for your Fall 2020 classes.  You do not need to wait until June Orientation to sign up for your classes.

Academic Advising

Each academic college, as well as the School of Energy Resources and the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, has an advising coordinator for transfer students; there is an advising coordinator for undeclared students, as well. These individuals are available to assist you if you are not able to attend a Transfer, Non-Traditional, or Veteran Student Orientation. When appropriate, they will help get you connected with your academic department and a faculty advisor.
