Check Your Application Status



Undergraduate Students

If you are an undergraduate applicant, you can check your application status by logging into our portal. Most undergraduate students are mailed and emailed with the decision of their application. If you fall in an additional student category, we recommend logging in if you have not received an email with your decision.


Graduate Students

Graduate students should reach out to the coordinator of the program in which they’ve applied to check the status of their admission decision.

Please Note: Most graduate programs are responsible for the admission decision once the candidate has applied to UW.








More Resources

The University of Wyoming strives to make obtaining your degree affordable and accessible. That’s why our undergraduate admission is on a “rolling basis”, meaning you can apply at any time for the upcoming semester.

If you’re a first-year student, make sure to confirm your enrollment by May 1 in order to secure any financial aid awarded to you.
