Admission Info: WVU has a rolling admissions policy, meaning there is no deadline for applications. To apply as a first-time-freshman, submit your paper or online application, along with your official high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores. The average student enrolled in WVU's fall 2009 freshman class had a 3.3 high school grade point average, a composite ACT score of 23.6, and/or a combined SAT Critical Reading and Math score of 1048.
Scholarship/Financial Aid: WVU offers a large number of merit-based scholarships to incoming freshmen. For most awards, no separate application is required. Merely completing the admissions application and having transcripts and ACT/SAT scores sent to WVU will get the process started. Please note that for most scholarships, all information must be received by the WVU Admissions Office no later than February 1 of your senior year in order to receive scholarship consideration. In addition to scholarships, financial aid packages may include grants, employment, and/or loans, and are based on individual financial need and eligibility. Our deadline for the FAFSA is March 1.
