The Trustees of the University of Wyoming, a constitutional body, are responsible for the "management of the university"(Wyoming Constitution, Article 7, 17). The Trustees "possess all the powers necessary or convenient to accomplish the objects and perform the duties prescribed by law and shall have custody of the books, records, buildings and all other property of the university" (W.S. 21-17-203). The Trustees may "(e)xpend the income placed under their control from whatever source derived, and exercise all other functions properly belonging to such a board and necessary to the prosperity of the university and all its departments" (W.S. 21-17-204).


Per the University of Wyoming Regulation 7-11, "Student tuition, fees, and charges (“Fees”) and related policies and procedures shall be established by the Board of Trustees in the University Fee Book. The President, through the Office of Financial Affairs, shall maintain and publish the Fee Book.

Therefore, pursuant to constitutional and statutory provisions, the Trustees are responsible for the establishment of all
fees, charges, and deposits assessed, and refunds afforded to individuals applying for admission to the university, enrolled students, university employees, and the general public. Such fees shall be reasonable and prudent for the adequate protection and control of university funds, equipment, facilities services and materials.

Trustees of the University of Wyoming shall be denied use of University facilities and services until such fees, charges,

penalties, or deposits shall be prescribed by the Vice President for Administration.

Administration and published in the Fee Book.
