Casper, WY (AP) - University of Wyoming trustees will consider raising the standards for guaranteed admission to the state's only public university.  However, UW officials say the proposal wouldn't keep out students who want to attend the university.  Currently, a student is assured admission to UW with a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 or 2.75 GPA with an ACT score of 20 or higher.  The proposal would increase the standard to a 3.0 GPA and an ACT score of 21 or higher beginning the fall of 2013.  High School course requirements would also change to match the Hathaway Success Curriculum
