WVU uses the most recent cumulative GPA from a student's high school transcript when determining admission to the University and when determining scholarship eligibility. We review high school GPA based on a four-point grading scale. In most instances, we will consider weighted GPA when determining eligibility for admission and scholarships.

Standardized Test Score
WVU accepts multiple test dates for either exam and superscore for admission, the Honors College and merit awards. WVU combines the highest sub-scores from different test dates to create a "superscore" total or composite. Once admitted, students may continue to submit new scores (our merit deadline is July 15 for updating scores).
