Seasons Greetings!

EWC closed at noon today so that our staff could enjoy a short holiday break with their families.  Students are traveling, faculty are done with grades and a little R and R is called for.  I have seen lots of EWC people work hard this semester and I am very proud of this college.  Everyone has stepped up and taken on a little more and it shows.  Our enrollment is up for spring; so we are headed in the right direction.  If you have not been on EWC campus for awhile; come up!  Or if you have not seen the Douglas campus; go see it.  Someone will give you a tour….. guaranteed.  Our doors will be open again on January 2nd.  In the meantime, enjoy your holidays and Happy New Year!

EWC to offer electronic transcripts

Eastern Wyoming College has announced a new and improved way for students to obtain transcripts. EWC is pleased to have entered into an agreement with the National Student Clearinghouse.

Beginning on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, the EWC Records Office will no longer be sending paper transcripts of student’s grades to transferring colleges and universities, potential employers, and others. The new agreement with the National Student Clearinghouse will allow for the issuance of transcripts electronically which will decrease the time necessary for sending and receiving transcripts. The cost of this new service will be $7.25 per transcript which will be paid to the Clearinghouse.

Students can access the National Student Clearinghouse directly for transcripts or they may use the transcript link on the EWC website at

With this change, EWC joins all of the other Wyoming Community Colleges in issuing electronic transcripts. When ordering transcripts from the Clearinghouse, students will have the option on sending and/or receiving them electronically, in paper format or the pick them up at the EWC Records Office on the main campus in Torrington.

  • Participants enroll 98% of all students in public and private U.S. institutions
  • Their free and low-cost services save higher education institutions over $750 million annually
