Does WyoTech have a dress code?
Yes. To help establish both professional appearance and professional mannerisms for entering the workforce, WyoTech students are expected to follow the Student Appearance Code (below) during their time on campus.
WyoTech Student Appearance Code
- All clothing must be clean with no holes, tears, or frayed edges.
- Coats may not be worn in the shop or classroom unless permitted by the instructor.
- Hooded coats or jackets are not permitted in the shop.
- No article of clothing or tattoo shall have pictures, emblems, and/or messages that are lewd, offensive, vulgar, obscene, or might otherwise cause disruption.
- School Uniform: The school uniform shall be properly worn on campus during school operating hours.
Shirt: A WyoTech-issued uniform shirt shall be worn completely buttoned with the exception of the top button/snap. Unless specifically designed as a square-cut work shirt and issued by the school, shirttails must be tucked into the pants. Sweaters or other shirts, if worn, must be worn underneath the uniform shirt. For safety reasons, no hooded clothing is permitted in the shop or as part of the uniform.
Pants: Solid-color work pants shall be worn in an appropriate manner at the natural waistline (above the hips) and may not be excessively baggy or loose.

Hair shall be cut so as to not extend beyond the eyebrow, middle of the ear, and top of the shirt collar.
Females may have long hair but must pin their hair up to be above the shirt collar while training in the shop.
Hair must be a natural color. No unnatural hair color is allowed.
Any hair style that does not conform to the above, does not project a professional appearance of reasonable expectations in the workplace, or is otherwise a potential safety hazard is prohibited.
- Shaving: Male students shall be clean-shaven. Mustaches are permitted, provided they do not extend below or beyond the corners of the mouth. Sideburns are permitted provided they extend no lower than the bottom of the ear, extend straight down the face, and must be trimmed so they are not bushy.

Safety Equipment: Appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses, face shields, hearing protection, welding helmets, gloves, respirators and other equipment appropriate for specific tasks must be properly worn at all times while performing such tasks. Safety glasses should be worn at all times in the shop unless in designated safe areas.
- Jewelry: The wearing of earrings, gauges, posts, spacers, studs, and dangling jewelry is not permitted. Facial skin, tongue or body piercing rings, studs, posts, ornaments and chain wallets/belts are also prohibited.
