How to Apply

WVU Online Undergraduate Students

WVU Online has students enrolled from six countries, 50 states and all 55 West Virginia counties. You are considered an online student if you want to be enrolled in an online program listed through the WVU Online Campus. Online students pay different tuitions and fees than traditional on-campus students, which means students enrolled in online programs do not have access to many on-campus services, such as the Student Recreation Center, the PRT or free tickets to athletic events.  

How to Apply as a WVU Online Undergraduate Student

To apply to West Virginia University as an online undergraduate student, please complete the following steps. 

  1. Review the  application deadlines. To learn more about the process, reach out to a WVU Online Admissions Coach.
  2. Complete the WVU Online Campus application and include the nonrefundable fee. The fee is $50 for all undergraduate applicants.
  3. Send transcripts of previous schoolwork – options for submitting transcripts.
  4. If you have previously completed coursework at other institutions, have the transcripts sent directly to:

    Office of Admissions
    West Virginia University
    P.O. Box 6009
    Morgantown, WV 26506-6009

    We do not accept transcripts that have been issued to the student or facsimile (FAX) transcripts. Please note that in order to be considered for admission, you must have transcripts sent to us from all institutions you have attended, even if you did not do well at one of the institutions.
  5. Request an official high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores be sent to us if you are transferring with fewer than 24 transferable credits. Please ask your high school to mark the transcript: “FOR TRANSFER ADMISSION.” Failure to do this may slow your admission. If you have been out of high school for five or more years, no test scores are required.

Application Deadlines

Most WVU Online undergraduate programs offer rolling admissions, meaning that students can start in the fall, spring or summer terms. Please visit the  WVU Online website and click on the program page to which you are applying to view application deadlines and start dates.
