If you still need to apply for financial aid, please fill out our online financial aid calculator. If you do not need financial aid, please contact Mrs. Bolin to request a financial package from her. She will get that to you as soon as possible.

It is expected that all incoming freshmen will complete the 21-day trip prior to starting classes in the fall. However, we understand that there might be a legitimate need to defer the trip until the following year. Because the 21-day trip is a requirement of the academic curriculum, the only person that can approve a deferment is the Academic Dean. To request a deferment of the 21-day trip, please complete this form.
Student Handbook Acknowledgement
Wyoming Catholic is committed to fostering a community whose love for the True, the Good, and the Beautiful permeates every aspect of life on campus. Our campus code of conduct strives to reflect that love in relation to the demands of our unique intellectual program and the formation which we strive to offer our students. We are proud of attracting the caliber of student who shares this dedication to our community and its customs as a part of his or her own character development.
Specific guidelines that our students follow are covered in greater detail below, and clearly spelled out in our Student Handbook. They include a zero-tolerance policy for the misuse of drugs and alcohol, a business professional dress code for academic and liturgical events, an evening curfew, and a technology policy emphasizing the value of personal, rather than virtual, interaction. Further, students are effectively made the stewards of this vision for our community, both by the emphasis placed on personal responsibility and the opportunity for students to serve as residence life staff.
Once you have read through the handbook, please complete this waiver, please follow this link.
Guns & Weapons
Students are permitted to bring guns to campus with the provision that they are stored with the College according to its policies. All students who wish to bring firearms to school must declare them to the designated college staff member and must receive the permission of the Academic Dean. Students are then able to check their firearm out for hunting or recreational use during the school year. However, students may not conceal carry on campus. Knives are also permitted on campus if the blade is less than six inches in length.
Students who choose to bring a firearm to campus must fill out this waiver
Students may not have either a cell phone or internet-capable device (i.e., an iPod touch) on their person while school year is in session. These devices are stored with the Office of Student Life and may be checked out over academic breaks or times of travel, including outdoor trips when appropriate. For a greater explanation visit our page on the Technology Policy.
Students who choose to bring a cellphone to campus must fill out this waiver
Housing Preference Form
The apartments house four students, sharing two bedrooms per apartment; the Holy Rosary dormitory rooms house two students sharing one bedroom in a hall of 8 bedrooms; riverside dormitory rooms house 4 freshmen to a room. Freshmen will be placed in housing arrangements exclusive to freshmen (i.e.freshmen will not share rooms with upperclassmen unless by specific request). Since we want you to be able to live happily, it is important that you answer the following questions. Feel free to add further details in the comments section at the bottom. The information will assist the Office of Student Life in arranging roommates for students. You can check with the Director of Student Life after July 15th to receive your assignment.

There will be a second shuttle for Leader Week participants, but the exact date is still being determined in conjunction with the Outdoor Leadership Program.
Riverton Airport (RIW) Shuttles
We can take a student to or from Riverton anytime (excepting Nov. 1st, Nov. 23rd, Dec. 8th, Dec. 18th through Jan. 3rd, and March 29th through 31st) so long as we have a week’s notice. As much as we would like to offer shuttles to non-students, we do not offer shuttles to non-students. The Riverton Airport shuttles will only be free for students if they are not missing any class days as a result of their traveling. If one is planning on missing any class days, the student should make arrangements with their professors and the Academic Dean in addition to scheduling a shuttle, which will cost $20.
This letter from the Academic Dean includes a selection of readings to do in preparation for the trip. These readings are meant to facilitate your reflection on your experience of the outdoors and to connect those experiences to your upcoming studies this fall. Please read prior to your arrival on campus.
