At WyoTech, we also establish guidelines for attendance, behavior, and academic achievement in our labs, classrooms, and shop floors. The professionalism acquired, the positive attitudes gained, and the personal motivations forged all combine to produce WyoTech graduates who are ready and prepared to seek employment in a challenging and exciting industry.
In today’s competitive world, many employers seek to hire employees with hands-on-experience, and some type of degree or training certification. For the student, this means finding the right career training course along with the financial aid package to get into the career they want.

This is why it’s important to contact WyoTech directly about the financial aid packages available. We have a dedicated team of student finance planners who are here to help students get the money they need for education.
Once admitted into a WyoTech Course, our student finance planners will help you determine the best means of financing your education.

Where a student will live is just as important as the education they’ll receive. Many of our students discover the housing choices made available offer the same comforts and freedom of having their own place. WyoTech offers student housing in Blairsville and Laramie.
Students are also provided with transportation to and from school at selected campuses and housing sites. Both the education and safety of our students is a top priority at WyoTech, and comfortable and safe housing allows our students to live with others who share the same level of interest and passion for getting ahead in life.
