Next Steps for Admitted Graduate Students

Once notified of your official admission to UW and your individual academic program, students will be directed on how to confirm their intent to enroll and advised on a number of "next steps" in the process. In addition to program-specific items, all admitted graduate students must complete the following:

Student Immunization and Health History Form

Before registering for classes, students must be in compliance with the MMR immunization requirement. To learn more about the MMR immunization requirement, contact Student Health Service at (307) 766-2130.

Residence Life and Dining Services (RLDS)

While graduate students are not required to live in university housing, affordable and convenient options do exist on campus. For more information about the residence halls or university apartments, contact Residence Life and Dining at (307) 766-3175.

Federal Financial Aid and Scholarships

Students who would like to be considered for need-based assistance must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA). The priority deadline for students entering in the fall is March 1. For more information about financial aid opportunites contact Student Finanical Aid. Please note that deadlines exist for many scholarship and financial opportunities.

Students wishing to pursue graduate assistantships should do so at the time they apply for admission to their academic program. Contact your graduate program for information about applying for an assistantship.

Confirming Your Intent to Enroll at UW

Each graduate program will advise its new graduate students on the process for confirming their intention to enroll at UW. Unlike undergraduates, graduate students are not required to make an enrollment deposit in order to confirm their intent to enroll.

Students admitted to a graduate program who wish to postpone or defer their enrollment for up to one year should first inquire about this option with their graduate program. Further information can be found in Admissions office

Final Transcripts and Academic Records

If you applied for admission prior to having completed your most recent degree, please have your final college transcript sent directly to the UW Admissions Office when they become available. Your admission is not final until the final transcripts are received, which can hold up any financial assistance and may prevent you from enrolling for subsequent semesters.

Graduate Student Orientation

New graduate students are asked to attend a half-day orientation session to learn more about UW resources and academic expectations. Information about the program will be sent to admitted graduate students.
