Ohio Tuition Reciprocity Agreement
As the result of a special agreement, students from Ohio who are directly admitted to approved majors can enroll at WVU and pay in-state tuition rates. Eligibility is determined by a number of factors, and we strongly encourage students to work with their WVU admissions counselor, Jody Kilpatrick, to learn more about the program.
- Students must be admitted to the University and directly admitted to the approved major.
- A list of eligible majors is published annually and may change from year-to-year. Continuing students receive the in-state tuition rate provided that they maintain renewal requirements.
- In most cases, students receiving the Ohio Reciprocity reduced tuition are not eligible for merit scholarships.
- Ohio Reciprocity tuition applies to 8 semesters plus summer study. Once exhausted, students are assessed the out-of-state tuition rate.
- Students are evaluated for their major plan of study at the end of each term.
- Students are removed from the program if not progressing in their approved reciprocity major.
- They must remain in good academic standing (2.0 overall GPA), meet requirements for the reciprocity major (which may include a GPA greater than 2.0), and meet 30 earned credit hours during the academic year, including summer term.
- Students who lose eligibility have a limited time to appeal with the Provost Office. If denied eligibility, out-of-state tuition and fees will be assessed.
- If dual majoring, both majors must be approved Ohio Reciprocity majors. First-time students are not approved for dual majors until meeting with their academic adviser during New Student Orientation.
