Courses offered through WVU Online and Extended Campus follow the same dates/deadlines as Office of the University Registrar. You can view the Office of the University Registrar calendar at http://registrar.wvu.edu/.
If you are teaching a course that requires students obtain departmental approval in order to register, please review the policy in order to follow the proper procedures.
Policies and procedures relating to appeals of academic penalties shall be governed by due process under 6.3 at http://undergraduateacademicaffairs.wvu.edu/university-policies/grade-appeals
Students must be notified that selling faculty-authored course materials is prohibited at West Virginia University. Those who engage in it will be reported to the Office of Student Conduct for adjudication under the Campus Student Code. Of equal import, students must be notified that no vendor has been approved or authorized by the University to solicit sales of this type and that they should report solicitation attempts to the Provost’s Office.
In an effort to protect course materials, faculty are encouraged to place a notice on course syllabi or in other relevant locations, as follows:
“All course materials, including lectures, class notes, quizzes, exams, handouts, presentations, and other materials provided to students for this course are protected intellectual property. As such, the unauthorized purchase or sale of these materials may result in disciplinary sanctions under the Campus Student Code.”
The refund schedule, determined by the Higher Education Policy Commission, is available on the WVU Student Accounts website.
WVU Online and Extended Campus Registration Procedure
Students begin registering for their WVU Online/Extended Campus courses according to the pre-registration deadlines established by the WVU Office of the University Registrar (OUR).
Courses requiring approval will be designated with instructions to contact WVU Online/Extended Campus via phone or by submitting an online request form. Review the departmental approval procedure at http://online.wvu.edu/Faculty/CourseAdministration/policies.php to be sure approvals are processed properly.
WVU Online/Extended Campus processes approvals according to deadlines established by the WVU Office of the University Registrar. Late registration approval is required from the Assistant or Associate Dean of the student’s college in order to process their registration.
Students with account holds cannot be processed under any circumstances. Students must contact the office who placed the hold on their account and have it lifted prior to registration being processed.
Students pay their account via STAR. Typically, payment is due the Saturday before the first day of classes of the semester. Full payment is due for the Summer session and the Fall and Spring semesters offer a 60%/40% payment schedule. Specific dates can be found by visiting the Office of Student Accounts on the web at http://studentaccounts.wvu.edu/.

West Virginia University currently offers two entrepreneurial models to its schools and colleges. Although these models differ in scope and practice, the goals are similar.
WVU participates in the Electronic Campus of the Southern Regional Education Board which is an "electronic marketplace" for courses, programs and services. Students pay in-state tuition for courses offered through the Electronic Campus.
