How to Apply

Change of Campus Students

If you are currently attending Potomac State College or WVU Tech, or are currently enrolled in a fully online degree program, we look forward to welcoming you as you continue your WVU education at the Morgantown campus. Our experienced staff will confer with you individually to ensure a smooth transition to WVU.

How to Apply as a Change of Campus Student

To change your campus to WVU Morgantown, you must:

  1. Review the admissions requirements.
  2. Complete the WVU Application and select the Change of Campus student type option. No application fee is required to submit the application. Please note you cannot use your WVU Login credentials when signing into the application. You must create a separate login.
  3. Transcripts of courses completed at Potomac State College and the WVU Institute of Technology do not need to be provided. The Office of Admissions will compile and review that information.

Admission Requirements for Change of Campus Students

You are considered a Change of Campus student if you attend Potomac State College – Keyser Campus, WVU Institute of Technology – Beckley Campus or are currently enrolled in a fully online degree program and would like to transition to an on-campus degree program. To be eligible to enroll as a Change of Campus student at WVU Morgantown, you must have at least a 2.0 grade point average in all college work attempted. In addition, if you have fewer than 24 transferable credit hours, you must also meet freshman admission standards. Some individual programs and majors have different course requirements and higher grade point average requirements; please review the various program requirements. Students interested in Nursing, Nursing RN to BSN, Nursing BS/BA to BSN, Biomedical Laboratory Science and Dental Hygiene must complete the standard admission application and should not follow the Change of Campus process.

Application Deadlines

Please submit your Change of Campus form and supporting documents prior to the following deadlines:

Transferring Course Credit to WVU

Once WVU has received your change of campus form and supporting documents, and your eligibility for admission has been determined, the Office of Admissions will conduct a preliminary evaluation of your course work. Credits and grades for college-level courses completed at any institution may be accepted as long as WVU offers the subject area. For example, WVU offers history courses and will therefore accept all history courses from accredited institutions ( slight variations may occur).

Credits from two-year community colleges and junior colleges are limited to a maximum of 72 hours of lower-division credit. Grades and credits are transferable for college-level courses from all institutions accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, or by other regional accrediting associations accepted by WVU.

The Office of Admissions will translate your credit into WVU equivalents once you have been admitted. Your academic college or school will then determine how, and/or whether your courses are applied toward completing your degree. In some cases, upper-division courses may not apply toward your degree.

You can learn more about how your existing course credit may transfer to WVU by using our Transfer Equivalency System.
