If you are coming to UW as an Exchange student (paying your home university tuition), you will NOT pay UW tuition or most fees.
You will be required to pay:
· Application Fee ($50)
· International Student Fee ($100)
· Student Insurance (approximately $1450)
*Students participating in an ISEP program do not pay these to UW. They are paid to your home university or directly to ISEP. If you do not know what ISEP is, you are not an ISEP student.
If you are coming to UW as a Study Abroad (fee paying) student, you will pay 150% or (100%) of In State Resident tuition and fees (http://www.uwyo.edu/sfa/cost-of-attendance/), in addition to the charges listed above.
All international students are required to have health insurance
Information about the insurance policy can be found online. It is your choice whether to purchase a supplemental policy from your home country.
o When you register for classes, tuition and fees will automatically be charged to your student account.
o If you are an exchange student, these fees will be removed after UW’s registration drop/add period.
o This is not generally complete until the end of September for the fall semester, or late February for the spring semester.
If you are an exchange student, do not be concerned if you see tuition and fee charges on your account; they will be removed eventually.
o Charges can be paid on WyoWeb with a Visa or MasterCard (there is a 3% fee for credit card use), Bank transfer at Flywire (https://www.flywire.com/pay/uwyo) or with cash at the Cashier’s Office on campus in Knight Hall (the Cashier’s Office does not accept credit cards).
It is not necessary for you to pay before you come to UW. Payment can be made when you arrive.
o Payment due dates can be found on the Important Dates website.
o If you pay at least 1/3 of your student bill when you arrive, you will be enrolled in a payment plan.
o You can then pay the balance due over the next two months (for a total of 3 payments).
o There is a $15 charge to be enrolled in this payment plan.
To see your charges:
o Log in to WyoWeb
o Go to Your Student Account, and Account Summary by Term
o Your charges will be listed there (If you are an exchange student, do not be concerned if you see tuition and fee charges on your account; they will be removed eventually.)
o If you would like to pay by credit card, there is an Online Payments link near the top of the page.
o You will be able to enter the amount you would like to pay.
The cost for textbooks can be quite high for some students ($200-$600) – please be prepared!
The University Store has a list of books required for all classes online (click the link below).
After you answer a few questions, this web site can provide you with a price comparison for books from a number of different web sites. You can even purchase books from other online stores directly from the University Store web site!
In some cases, you will also have the option of renting books or purchasing electronic copies. These are not always available, but can be cheaper than buying the books.
Check the UW Library to see if the book you need is available there.
You may be able to borrow books from the Library at no cost (once you arrive on campus).
Remember to return books to the Library before you go home. There is a book buy-back period at the end of each semester. If you have purchased textbooks and would like to sell them, this is the fastest and easiest way.
Simply take your books to the lower level of the Union (follow the signs), to the buy-back windows. Your books will be evaluated, and you will be offered cash for them.
Take your student ID card with you – this is required!
They may not buy all of your books, and, most importantly, they may not give you as much as you paid
