If you have any questions about the registration process, please reach out to Coleen Schaberg.
Once we have received your registration form and initial payment, you will receive a Text Overview and Study Guide for your first class.
The Text Overview will let you know which books will be required for the course and what assignment will be necessary.
Order the proper textbooks for your course (you are required to purchase these separately from your registration fee) and begin working on the Text Overview before attending your class in person.
You need to read the required textbooks in their entirety and complete the Text Overview and Study Guide as the final exam will come exclusively from the Text Overview.

Weather is always a challenge in Wyoming. During the winter months, we ask that you are flexible with us. In case of inclement weather, the WYSOM Director may postpone classes, reschedule for the following week, or permit a virtual class session to take place. If you believe the weather is questionable for your arrival, please contact Coleen Schaberg the day before your class is scheduled to occur.
You are required to take and pass an exam to receive credit for each course you participate in.
Towards the end of your class time, your instructor will distribute the final exam to you. Once completed, your instructor will grade your exam and submit your exam, along with your Text Overview to the WYSOM Director for recording. The director will then take all percentages and compile them together for your final grade.
The following scale will be used for each course, regardless of what credential level you are taking:
Once your final grade has been recorded, you will receive an email within 7 days containing your earned grade.
