The University of Wyoming has established a policy that will allow students at Wyoming community colleges who earn associate of arts or associate of science degrees to be automatically admitted to the university.

State higher educational leaders announced today (Wednesday) that beginning this fall, qualified students will need only to complete an admissions form and provide other necessary information to transfer from Wyoming community colleges to UW. There will be no application fee to complete the process and, through its recently created Wyoming Transfer Advance Program, UW will offer counseling on academic requirements and financial aid, as well as other transition support.

“This policy is a significant step forward in our mutual goal to expand higher education opportunities for students in Wyoming,” says UW President Tom Buchanan. “Automatic admission to UW, combined with the Hathaway Scholarship program, other scholarships and low tuition, provide Wyoming high school graduates with some of the nation’s best access to quality higher education.”
