- Apply to WVU.
- Have your official transcripts sent to WVU. Also send official transcripts of any
college work you have completed. Transcripts can be sent to:
Office of Admissions
West Virginia University
P.O. Box 6009
Morgantown, WV 26506-6009
- Have your official ACT and/or SAT scores sent to WVU. The ACT code is 4540, and the SAT code is 5904.
- If you take the ACT or SAT more than once, submit all scores. We'll use the highest subscores to create a "super score." And although the SAT scoring system changed in March 2016, WVU still accepts pre-March 2016 scores. Even if you took the SATs both before and after March 2016, we will create super scores for pre- and post-March separately and consider both when making our decisions.
- Your GPA is from information received on your high school transcript and is based on the overall, cumulative GPA listed on your transcript at the time of application. Both weighted and unweighted grades are accepted. Scholarship awards are based on your school's grading system.
Remember to file your FAFSA and accept your Financial Aid package in your Student Account.
If your scholarships and other funds exceed the amount of your bill, you will receive a refund check that can be used for other expenses, such as textbooks, supplies, laundry, etc.
- You should also investigate private scholarship sources to help fund your education. For a list of free scholarship search websites try:
