Our proud tradition of academic excellence attracts some of the nation’s best and brightest students and scholars. If you want to challenge yourself academically, explore our Honors College. WVU ranks nationally for prestigious scholarships (24 Rhodes Scholars, 22 Truman Scholars, 36 Goldwater Scholars), and the ASPIRE Office can help enrich your college experience and guide you as you apply for these and other national awards.
Our Office of Graduate Education and Life supports our vibrant graduate and professional student community through unique programming such as the Graduate Academy, designed to help students complete their degrees, teach and research effectively, and plan for their careers.
Are you undecided on a major? Don’t panic – WVU is a great place to find a major that’s right for you. The General Studies program is designed for students who aren’t quite ready to select a major. Our University Advising Services Center and Career Services Center will help you find the right academic path.
In addition to our majors and minors, you can further customize your experience by:
- Getting on-the-job experience with an internship
- Taking online classes
- Exploring a military career through Air Force or Army ROTC
- Helping the community with a service learning project
- Studying abroad
WVU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and many WVU programs hold specialized accreditation.
