  • Office Hours

    Your best resource

    Who better to help you be successful in class than your instructor? From offering strategies for studying and note-taking to clarifying concepts and content, office hours are hands down your best resource on campus.

    Make a habit early and often to visit instructor's office hours - if their scheduled hours do not work for you, most instructors offer appointments. You should be able to find office hour information on your class syllabus.

  • Advisors

    Advisors can help with keeping you on track for your degree program, identifying support, and helping you find opportunities such as internships.

    Peer Mentor Program

    The Cowboy Coaches peer-mentoring program is made up of current students. They bring a deep understanding and perspective to newer students who may need a little extra help, friendship or mentoring.  
    These mentors are matched with students based on a variety of traits including areas of study, personality, social factors and more. Coaches receive a high level of training to ensure each mentor can take a solution-based and empathetic approach when working with their peers. Cowboy Coaches are supervised by Student Success & Graduation staff in the event a student is in crisis and requires additional resources from licensed professionals.

    Still need help? 

    It is STEP policy to speak to students directly regarding their requests for academic help.Students should email STEP from their UWYO email account with any questions. 

    STEP does not provide ad hoc tutoring for classes. We cannot provide tutors or tutoring for classes outside our posted class list

    We advise emailing, as our main desk in Coe Library is not staffed at all times. Emails are responded to quickly!
