STUDENT LIFE

Does WyoTech have a dress code?

To help establish both professional appearance and professional mannerisms for entering the workforce, WyoTech students are expected to follow the following Student Appearance Code during their time on campus.

  • 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.
  • Boots: Professional work-style boots or shoes must be worn and properly laced. No athletic style shoes or sandals are permitted.

    • 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.
  • Headwear: A knit cap (beanie) or baseball-style cap with the bill facing forward may be worn in the facilities, but must be removed in the classroom, TRC, or computer lab. No other headwear may be worn while in WyoTech training facilities.
  • 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.

How much does housing cost?

Housing is $300/month for a dual-occupancy bedroom, $400/month for single-occupancy. (This rounds out to $2,700 for 9 months in a dual-occupancy bedroom, or $3,600 for 9 months in a single-occupancy bedroom, extended as needed for the length of your stay.)

What kind of housing is available for students?

Our on-campus apartments are organized as multi-resident suites, which means that both private and double-occupancy bedrooms share a common kitchen, living room, and bathroom.

Can I have my own apartment?

Unfortunately, no. While single-occupancy bedrooms do offer more privacy within an apartment, there will still be multiple students per apartment unit.

Does WyoTech offer housing for married students?

Although WyoTech does not offer housing for married students, our housing staff will provide information on available apartments (off campus) in the area.

What kind of campus activities does WyoTech offer?

Throughout the year, we offer professional development programs, tutoring, resource fairs, and extracurricular activities. Students who participate in the professional development program not only gain valuable information and experience, but also earn extra credit! Staff members are available to assist with roommate conflicts, financial budgeting, and housing.

Do I need to purchase any textbooks or tools?

Nope! We’ll provide all the books and tools required for you to complete your courses. As a student, you’ll also have access to a wide variety of resources such as service manuals, periodicals, computers and curriculum-based online resources.

Do I have to pay for my work shirts?

Nope, your work shirts will be provided for you.

Should I bring my own tools?

You’re welcome to bring tools for personal use outside of our shops, but as a general rule, we don’t allow students to bring their personal tools into the WyoTech shops.

How do I schedule a campus tour?

WyoTech invites all interested students, friends, and family members to visit the school! To schedule a tour, give us a call at 800-521-7158.

ACADEMICS

What are the requirements for admission to WyoTech?

We require that all students have a high school diploma or recognized equivalent, such as the GED. Each student must also interview with an Admissions Representative, and complete and submit all application documents.

How old do I need to be to attend WyoTech?

Students must be 18 or older to attend; however, students under 18 can make a special request to attend that will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

Any student under 18 will require parental consent to attend.

Is financial aid available?

Yes! In addition to filling out the FAFSA® form, students can search for available scholarship opportunities at FastWeb.com.

Are my WyoTech credits transferable?

WyoTech does not guarantee credit into or out of the school, and transferability is always at the discretion of the receiving school. Our diploma and degree programs are terminal in nature and are designed for the graduate’s employment upon graduation.

Upon request, we will provide students with transcripts and course outlines for credit evaluation, but ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to confirm whether or not credits will be accepted by another institution of the student’s choice.

I’m a current WyoTech student; how do I request a transcript?

LIVING IN LARAMIE

How do I get to Laramie?

From Denver International Airport, you can fly directly in to Laramie Regional Airport, or you can drive to us from there (it’s just over two hours) via I-25 and US-287 N.

If you need help coordinating your trip, we’d be happy to help! Just give us a call at 800-521-7158, or speak with your Admissions Representative.

What’s Laramie like?

Laramie, Wyoming, is a great balance of upbeat, college-town life and easy going, small-town vibes.

You’re not far from the epic hiking trails and scenic vistas of Medicine Bow National Forest; there’s endless opportunity to climb rock formations at Vedauwoo; and, in the winter, you can get out and explore the Snowy Range, where you can enjoy everything from downhill skiing to snowmobiling.

In addition, students often enjoy game days at the University of Wyoming, as well as exploring plenty of great places to eat and shop in downtown Laramie.

AFTER GRADUATION

I’m a WyoTech graduate from the Blairsville or Daytona campus; how do I request a transcript?

To request a transcript, please visit http://www.wyotechinfo.com/.

I’m a WyoTech graduate; can I come back to refresh my training?

On a space-available basis, a WyoTech graduate in good standing may return for an update training course in the program from which the student graduated at no additional tuition charge, provided the course or program is still offered. (A graduate is considered to be in good standing if all school charges have been paid and, if the graduate was a recipient of Federal loans, the graduate is current in all loan obligations.)

A graduate may not require update training prior to two years after graduating from the program.

A request for an update training course must be addressed to the Registrar and approved by the Campus President. Update training is not valid for grade or certification purposes, and the student will not receive a transcript, grade, or attendance for the portion repeated.

How do I become part of a WyoTech Advisory Committee?

To maintain our commitment to high-quality, career-oriented training and the maximum employability of our graduates, we’ve established Advisory Committees for each department. These Committees are comprised of industry members who formally meet with WyoTech staff and faculty to assist in making decisions regarding curriculum changes, equipment purchases, and program enrichment. To learn more about becoming part of a Committee, please email Shawn Nunley.
