Undergraduate Admission

UW welcomes all students to apply and will consider each student based on their individual academic achievement. Admission and programs of the University of Wyoming are offered to all eligible people without regard to race, gender, religion, color, national origin, disability, age, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, creed, ancestry, political belief, or any other applicable protected category. The Director of Admissions, through the Provost, is responsible for the admission of students. Admission of graduate students must also be recommended by the department of an applicable graduate program.

I. Definitions

Diploma: A formal document certifying the successful completion of a prescribed program of studies.

First Time Student: A student who has no prior postsecondary experience attending any institution for the first time at the undergraduate level. There are two exceptions: (1) students who attended any institution for the first time the summer prior to entering the University of Wyoming in the fall term and (2) students who enter UW with advanced standing (college credits earned before graduation from high school).

High School Student: A student enrolled in secondary school or pursuing a high school diploma or recognized equivalent. Includes students who have not received but are pursuing a high school diploma or recognized equivalent and taking college coursework concurrently.

High School Success Curriculum: Coursework during high school that includes successful completion of the following:

  1. Four (4) years of English;
  2. Four (4) years of math (including algebra I, II, and geometry);

Nationally Standardized Tests: ACT Assessment (ACT) or SAT Assessment (SAT) test results. Test results must be sent to the Admissions Office. SAT Assessment scores will be based off the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing + Math sections for exams administered in or after April 2016.

Returning Student: A student who previously attended UW but has not been enrolled for three consecutive semesters, including a summer term.

Transfer Student: A student entering the University of Wyoming for the first time but known to have previously attended a postsecondary institution at the same level (e.g., undergraduate, graduate). This includes new students enrolled in the fall term who transferred into the institution the prior summer term. The student may transfer with or without credit.

II. Undergraduate Admission Requirements

All applicants for admission under twenty-one (21) years of age or transfer students who have fewer than twelve (12) transferable semester credit hours after high school, must provide an official copy of their ACT or SAT test results. Test results must be sent to the Admissions Office.

A. First Time Students

Admission into a degree seeking program shall be based on individual academic achievement. The University seeks to admit qualified undergraduate students who are new first time students or students that are concurrently enrolled in post-secondary education classes.

To be considered for admission, prospective students must submit an application, a one-time nonrefundable application fee, official high school transcripts (or high school equivalency exam), and an official ACT or SAT test score (if the applicant is under 21) to the University’s Office of Admissions.

B. Assured Admission

Assured undergrauate admission shall be granted to high school graduates who meet the following requirements:

1. A cumulative, un-weighted highschool GPA of 3.000 (on a 4.000 scale)

2. A minimum composite ACT score of 21 or SAT score of 1060; and

3. Completion of the High School Success Curriculum while attending high school.

D. Admission with Alternative Educational Credentials

Undergraduate applicants with General Education Development (GED) credentials or other approved alternative educational credentials (i.e., High School Equivalency Test (HiSet)) should contact the University’s Office of Admissions for specific application requirements. Students under 21 years of age with GED or the approved credentials must also have a minimum ACT score of 17 or SAT score of 900.

E. Transfer Students

Transfer students with twelve (12) or more transferable hours after high school must submit an application, a one-time nonrefundable application fee, and official transcripts from each previously-attended higher education institution. Transfer students must have at least a 2.000 cumulative GPA for undergraduate admission.

Transfer students with eleven (11) or less transferable hours after high school must also submit, official high school transcripts (or approved alternative education credentials), official ACT or SAT test score (if the applicant is under 21) and official transcripts from each previously-attended higher education institution. Admissions to transfer students with eleven (11) or less transferable hours must have at least a 2.000 cumulative GPA as well as meet the assured admissions requirements for first time students.

Official transcripts must be sent directly from the institution(s) to the University’s Office of Admissions. Failure to disclose all previously attended institutions will be seen as a deliberate attempt to withhold academic history and may be reason for denied admissions and/or dismissal.

F. Home Schooled Students

Home schooled students shall be considered for admissions under the same requirements as First Time students.

G. Returning Students

Students returning to the University of Wyoming after not registering for classes for three or more consecutive semesters, including a summer term will need to submit a new application, provide official transcripts from all institution(s) attended since leaving the University of Wyoming, and be in good academic standing. Failure to disclose information about all institution(s) attended will be seen as a deliberate attempt to withhold academic history and may be reason for denied admissions and/or dismissal. Returning students must have a minimum 2.000 cumulative GPA from all undergraduate institutions.

Students suspended from the University of Wyoming must complete the reinstatement process. Academic reinstatement to the University of Wyoming does not constitute admissions to the institution. Students seeking reinstatement are required to meet admissions eligibility and criteria.

H. Holistic Alternative Admission

The University has the discretion to admit students who do not qualify under the above-described criteria.

III. International Students

Admission of international students is governed by the Admission Policy for International Students. This Policy is supplementary to the general admission policies described in this Regulation and provides for general admission standards for all international student applicants, including procedures for review and consultation with the various academic colleges and departments.

The Admission Policy for International Students shall be maintained and revised as determined by the Provost. Revisions are subject to the approval of both the Provost and the Associate Vice Provost for Enrollment Management, and shall become effective from the date of their approval.

The Admission Policy for International Students shall be published and distributed by the Office of Admissions and will be available through the Admission Office’s website.

IV. High School Guests

High school students requesting admission as high school guests must submit transcripts demonstrating a cumulative high school GPA of 3.000 on a 4.000 scale (official high school transcripts must be sent directly from the high school to the Office of Admission); a written recommendation from a high school counselor or principal; and official ACT or SAT test scores, if any.

V. Non-Degree Students

The non-degree admission status is a special status that is not available to international students or students who have a suspension status at UW or another college or university.

Applicants seeking admission as non-degree undergraduate students must submit an application and a one-time nonrefundable application fee to the Office of Admissions. Under this admission status, undergraduate students may take a maximum of eight (8) credit hours per semester and cannot apply more than twelve (12) total credits taken as a non-degree student toward an undergraduate degree.

VI. Second Bachelor’s Degree Students

Students who have received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wyoming and are seeking a second bachelor’s degree, but have not taken coursework since graduation, must submit a new application.

Students who have received a bachelor’s degree from another institution, or who graduated from the University of Wyoming and have taken courses at another institution since leaving the University, must submit an application, a one-time nonrefundable application fee, and official transcripts from each previously-attended higher education institution. Official transcripts must be sent directly from the institution to the University’s Office of Admissions.

Graduate Admission

I. Graduate Applicants

Prospective students are encouraged to consult with their respective academic department regarding the admission process before making a formal UW application.

Applicants must submit the UW graduate application and the nonrefundable application fee. One set of official transcripts must be sent directly to the UW Admissions Office from each previous collegiate institution.

Domestic applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree or equivalent from a regionally accredited institution. All applicants should have at least a 3.000 cumulative GPA (scale of 4.000).

Some graduate programs may require standardized examination scores for admission.

Applicants whose department requires the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) must request official scores be sent to the Admissions Office directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Our institution code with ETS is 4855.

Some departments may require scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), rather than the GRE.

Letters of recommendation may also be required by some departments. Please see the academic department or program entries elsewhere in the Catalog for details about admission requirements.

Graduate applicants should contact the respective academic departments for questions concerning application status, degree program requirements, deadlines, and supplemental application materials they may require.

A. Admission Status Categories

Advanced-degree applicants may be admitted to the University of Wyoming in one of the following categories:

  1. Admitted Graduate Student signifies the applicant has been accepted by the university and by a major department to work toward an advanced degree.
  2. Conditional admission of a Graduate Student signifies the applicant did not meet the formal admission requirements but has sufficient potential that the university and the major department are convinced that the student will be successful as an advanced-degree candidate. Conditions are usually placed on such students in the form of performance criteria for the first one or two semesters. If the conditions of admission are not met within first two semesters, the student may be denied admission to the university graduate program and the degree program. At minimum, conditionally admitted graduate students must maintain a 3.000 GPA through their first semester. Failure to do so will result in revocation of admission. More restrictive conditions may be defined by the department.

Students admitted with graduate standing may elect to take any undergraduate or graduate courses for which they are prepared, subject to restrictions as outlined in the University Catalog. However, tuition will be assessed at the graduate level for all courses taken with graduate status. Admission to graduate study does not automatically make a student a candidate for an advanced degree.

Note: Students working toward a second bachelor’s degree are not considered graduate students and are subject to all undergraduate regulations.

II. International Graduate Applicants

All graduate international students must also submit the following in additional to application materials required by the Academic Department.

  1. Provide proof of satisfactory English ability if student’s native language is not English. This can be done by providing official score reports from TOEFL or IELTS. The minimum acceptable TOEFL score is 540 (76 iBT). The minimum acceptable IELTS score is 6.5. Please note that some departments require higher TOEFL/IELTS scores than what is required by the Admissions Office.
  2. Many departments may require a higher level of English proficiency than what is required by the Admissions Office.
  3. Provide evidence of adequate financial resources to pay the total cost of their education. The Confidential Financial Statement for undergraduate international applicants can be found online at www.uwyo.edu/admissions/international/requirements-graduate.html. Students who are awarded a full graduate assistantship may not need to provide this documentation.

III. Graduate Non-Degree Student

  1. Must complete and submit a Non-Degree Student application including a non-refundable $50.00 application fee.
  2. Transcripts are required for proof of undergraduate degree for non-degree status, and must be submitted to the Admissions Office.
  3. Non-degree students may enroll in a maximum of 8 credit hours per semester (maximum of two courses). Only 12 credit hours taken in this status may be used towards a UW degree. This 12-credit hour rule may be decreased if prior courses were reserved for graduate credit as either an undergraduate or as non-degree student.
  4. Admission with non-degree status is not available to international students or students on suspension.
  5. Students admitted with non-degree status are assessed tuition and fees at the same tuition rate as degree-seeking students.
  6. Students admitted with non-degree status do not qualify to receive financial aid.
  7. Non-degree graduate students who decide to pursue a degree must apply to and be accepted by their respective graduate program and the Admissions Office.

Other Information

Wyoming Senior Citizen Policy

Wyoming senior citizens, age 65 and over, who have been admitted to UW may enroll in university courses on a space available basis at no cost upon presentation of evidence of age and Wyoming residence prior to the beginning of the term in which classes will be taken.

Scheduled Distance Education classes which meet minimum enrollment requirements are included in the courses available to senior citizens.

Board of Trustee Retirement Benefits

Beginning Spring 2002, official board retirees may attend University of Wyoming classes on a space available basis at no cost. To qualify for this benefit, you must be an official board retiree, 25 years of university service or age 60 with 15 years of immediately preceding university service. The spouse of an eligible retiree may receive a fifty (50) percent tuition discount and a surviving spouse may receive the employee’s full tuition discount provided space is available. The spouses must contact Student Financial Services at sfs@uwyo.edu or (307) 766-6233 in order for this benefit to be applied.

Readmission

Readmission is the process for former University of Wyoming students to again be admitted to the university. Former UW students who have attended another college since their last UW enrollment must have one official transcript from each college sent directly to the UW Admissions Office. Undergraduate students who are returning to UW after an absence of one year or longer should complete an application for admission at least 30 days prior to registration, thereby allowing sufficient time to avoid delays in registration.

Academic Reinstatement: Former students who are on academic suspension at UW must petition for reinstatement through the dean of their college. A petition for reinstatement must be submitted no later than 15 days before the beginning of the semester or summer term in which the student wishes to register. A petition received after this deadline may not be processed until after the regular registration period.

Academic Renewal: An undergraduate student who returns to UW and has not completed a college course at UW, during the previous five years, will have the option of continuing his or her earlier UW cumulative GPA or commencing a new cumulative GPA under the Academic Renewal policy. Interested students must submit the Academic Renewal Application Form (which can be obtained in the Office of the Registrar) to the registrar no later than ten class days before the last day of classes of the semester in which the student returns to UW.

The entire UW transcript will remain intact. A note indicating the policy will precede the new part of the UW transcript if the student opts for academic renewal. At the discretion of the academic department in which the student is enrolled, credit hours for which the student earned the grade of C or better may be applied toward the completion of the degree requirements. The list of any departmentally approved courses must be indicated on the Academic Renewal Application Form when initially submitted to the registrar. No further changes may be requested.

A student’s GPA and completed courses that were applied to a baccalaureate degree are not eligible for academic renewal.

Readmission for Military Service Members

Policy

The University of Wyoming acknowledges that students may be temporarily unable to attend classes or be required to suspend their studies in order to perform military service. UW encourages such students to resume their education once a military service obligation has ended and adopts this policy to ensure the timely readmission of such students.

In accordance with federal regulations, 34 C.F.R. 668.18 and the Department of Defense (DOD) Voluntary Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), the university will promptly readmit service members who seek readmission to a program that was interrupted due to a uniformed service obligation.

Student Responsibility

The student must provide oral or written notice of a uniformed service obligation to the Veterans Service Center as far in advance as possible, unless precluded by military necessity. Such notice does not need to indicate when the student will return to the university.

Tuition and Fees

A returning student must be charged the same tuition and fees in effect during the last academic year the student attended, unless veteran’s education benefits or other service member education benefits will pay the amount in excess. For subsequent academic years, the returning student may not be charged tuition and fees in excess of what other students in the program are charged.

Readmission Requirements

A returning student will be permitted to reenroll in the next semester scheduled in the same academic program, unless the student requests a later date of reenrollment or agrees to a different program. A returning student will be readmitted into the same academic program the student was enrolled in prior to the military service or the student requests admission to a different program.

If the university determines that a returning student is not prepared to resume the program or is unable to complete the program, the university must make reasonable efforts to enable the student to resume or complete the program at no additional cost to the student. If such efforts are unsuccessful or place an undue hardship on the university, the university is not required to readmit the student.

In accordance with federal regulations, returning student who receive a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge from the Armed Forces (including the National Guard and Reserves) are not eligible for readmission under this policy. However, service members who receive dishonorable or bad conduct discharge may remain eligible for readmission even though they will not be entitled to the benefits outlined in this policy.

Residency Student Classification

The following Trustee regulations govern the classification of students at the University of Wyoming as resident or non-resident for tuition purposes, and shall be administered by the Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management and Registrar. (Trustee Regulation, Chapter VIII, Section 3.) See the University Regulations online for the most up-to-date version.

Student Classification for Tuition Assessment

Residing in Wyoming primarily as a student will not support a claim for resident status for tuition purposes. Qualifying for residency for tuition purposes at the University of Wyoming differs from what is normally required to be a “resident” of the State of Wyoming. A person may be considered a “resident” of Wyoming and still be a Non-Resident for tuition purposes at the University of Wyoming.

The governing regulation for residency classification for tuition and fee purposes, as approved by the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees, is UW Regulation 2-200. See the University Regulations online for the most up-to-date version.

Process

The University of Wyoming will determine the initial classification of resident or nonresident status for tuition purposes. Students classified as nonresidents who feel they meet residency requirements may apply to change their status through a form approved by the Office of the Registrar.

If a student classified as an out-of-state resident for tuition purposes wishes to petition their residency status at the University of Wyoming, they will need to conclusively demonstrate they have established a permanent home in Wyoming. Students must submit the Petition for Residency for Tuition Purposes, along with all specified relevant, appropriate, and verifiable documentation to the Office of the Registrar. The deadline for submission is no later than 5 p.m. of the first day of classes for the semester the student wishes to petition, based off of the University’s academic calendar. The student bears the burden of providing documentation to show a permanent home has been established in Wyoming based on the required criteria of UW Regulation 8-1(III)(B)(8). See the University Regulations online for the most up-to-date version.

The Registrar or designee will evaluate the student’s petition and documentation to determine whether the student has established a permanent home in Wyoming based on the requirements set forth in UW Regulation 8-1(III)(B)(8) or met any other residency criteria in UW Regulation 8-1. See the University Regulations online for the most up-to-date version. If a student subsequently meets the criteria of being a resident for tuition purposes, the student’s residency status will be reclassified by the Office of the Registrar and the resident tuition rate will become effective the semester the student submitted the petition. Under no circumstances will any tuition or fee adjustments be retroactively applied to previous semesters.

If a student’s petition is denied, the student will be notified in writing of the denial.

Appealing the Registrar’s Decision

If a student has a petition denied by the Registrar, the student may appeal the decision by submitting the Denied Residency Petition Appeal form to the Office of the Registrar within ten (10) calendar days of the original decision by the Registrar or designee.

The Residency Classification Committee will receive the student’s Denied Residency Petition Appeal form, the written decision of the Registrar, and the student’s previously-submitted petition and documentation which were submitted to the Registrar prior to the submission deadline for that semester. The Residency Classification Committee will determine if an error was made by the Registrar and will make a decision to affirm or reverse the classification decision of the Registrar. The decision of the Residency Classification Committee is final and there is no further level of appeal for that semester.

Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)

Immunization Requirement

The University of Wyoming has implemented a policy to protect the University community against measles (rubeola), mumps, and rubella. All new on-campus students must provide proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella prior to registration. Two doses of MMR vaccine (or equivalent) are required. The MMR immunizations dates are to be entered into the Student Health Service Patient Portal (on the Student Health Service’s webpage, http://www.uwyo.edu/shser/). Incoming students will use their UW user names and passwords to enter the Patient Portal, and click on Immunizations. Once the immunization dates are entered, students will upload a verified immunization record into the Patient Portal.

The only contraindication to the MMR immunization is a previous severe allergic reaction to the vaccine or vaccine component (neomycin, gelatin). Relative (temporary) contraindications include: pregnancy; persons with immunosuppressive illnesses or treatment; moderate or severe acute illness; and recent receipt of blood products. If you are uncertain as to whether you should receive the immunization, please talk with your health care clinician.

Exemptions may be granted to the requirement in two instances: a medical exemption for a contraindication noted above, and a religious exemption. A medical exemption requires completion of the Medical Exemption Form with a notation of the reason for the exemption and a medical clinician signature. To request a religious exemption, a notarized form must be completed and submitted. Exemption forms can be found on the Student Health Service website (www.uwyo.edu/ shser), and the original form must be submitted. If an outbreak of one of these illnesses occurs on campus, students granted an exemption may be excluded from campus for the duration of the outbreak.

For students unable to verify MMR vaccinations, the vaccine is available at the Student Health Service for a nominal charge. It will be administered prior to registration for any eligible student, without an appointment, during office hours. Do not wait until registration to comply with the MMR immunization requirement, as this will delay the process.

In addition to the MMR requirement, international students are required to undergo tuberculosis screening prior to registration. Based on screening, a tuberculosis (Mantoux) skin test or (IGRA) blood test may be performed, and, if positive, a chest x-ray obtained with consultation with a Student Health Service physician. The student is responsible for the costs incurred for these tests.

Campus Safety

The University of Wyoming Police Department (UWPD) provides comprehensive law enforcement and security services to all components of the University including the academic campus, and other properties owned or controlled by the University. The University Police Officers are commissioned under Wyoming State Statute and have the full range of police authorities granted any peace officer including power to arrest, on property owned by or under the control of the University of Wyoming, including adjacent public streets and sidewalks. University Security Officers work closely with our police officers in constantly patrolling University properties and assisting employees and visitors in accessing University facilities. The UWPD operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and is located at 1426 East Flint, Laramie, Wyoming 82071.

Campus safety is the responsibility of all members of the university community. Faculty/staff, students, and guests are encouraged to report crimes and other concerning behavior or observations promptly. The Dean of Students Office, Student Conduct, The STOP Violence Program, and the Office of Diversity and Employment Practices are available to provide further information.

A full description of campus safety, crime statistics, and educational programs designed to increase safety on campus is available in the 2014 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report of the University of Wyoming. To access the report, go to www.uwyo.edu/uwpd/_ files/2015uwsecurityreport.pdf.
