Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Wyoming! As you begin your
college journey, we're excited to introduce our Saddle Up preparation program to incoming
students. Saddle Up introduces students to the demands of college coursework and helps
them develop critical thinking, planning, and study skills necessary for future success.
This program will also offer students a look into the experience of an academic semester,
including time management for academic success, student wellness, connection with
classmates, participation in a week-long course, and much more.
What can I expect from this course?
We have designed Saddle Up to be a comprehensive and exciting experience that helps
prepare you for the adjustment to college coursework at UW. Students will be guided
through a week-long course with plenty of opportunities to connect with faculty, staff,
and of course, the students who will be part of your college journey over the next
Is the Saddle Up camp required?
Yes. Students will earn one credit hour which can also be counted towards a student's
full-time status. Saddle Up is an accelerated yet exciting program that will give
students the leg up they need to successfully navigate their time at UW as a student
and community member.
Who is required to attend?
All incoming first-time, full-time domestic students entering UW in the fall of 2024 will participate in Saddle Up. This is a required course for students. Students will be enrolled into the Saddle Up course by their
academic advisor during New Student Days or online advising appointments completed over the summer. While transfer and international students are not required to participate in Saddle Up, they are
welcome to do so, and we encourage their participation. For more information, please
Our attendance policy covers this requirement in more specific detail.
When will Saddle Up take place?
Saddle Up will allow our first-year students to arrive early to campus ahead of their
first semester. That's right! You'll get to settle into the residence halls before
the semester officially begins. Students will begin Saddle Up by moving into residence
halls before beginning their week-long course. You won't want to miss it! Check out
the full schedule for more details.
We would love to hear your feedback for Saddle Up 2023!
We're certain you're eager to learn more about the details of this program. We're
so excited to get started, too! UW will be releasing details in spring 2024 to students
about schedules, details about move-in, and much more. In the meantime, we welcome
you to explore our FAQs.
Remember, this is a required course for all incoming students entering their first year. If you have any questions
in the meantime, please contact us and we'll be glad to assist you!
