Student Educational Opportunity


Student Educational Opportunity (SEO) is a unique department within Academic Affairs hosting both campus-based programs and statewide outreach programs dedicated to promoting college access and college success among Wyoming's socioeconomically disadvantaged students and families.

SEO programs are funded by the U. S. Department of Education and allow us to provide free services to students who are underrepresented in postsecondary education and graduate school including students who are:

  • Limited-income families
  • First generation college students
  • Ethnic minority students
  • Students with disabilities

Programs, staff, and services can be found at the University of Wyoming, on the Wind River Indian Reservation, and statewide, serving eligible students in 7th - 12th grade as well as UW undergraduates.

Director of SEO Pilar Flores                                Associate Director Michael Wade
