Tuition and Fees

The cost of courses varies by the program and college. West Virginia University’s tuition is low compared to many of our peer institutions and is often cited as a “Best Value” university.


Tuition and fees for online and off-campus programs/courses listed here:  Undergraduate   |   Graduate

Resident Tuition

Students are assessed based on their major or program. For example, a student majoring in business will be charged at the College of Business and Economics rate even if he or she is taking a psychology class. You can find the current tuition and fees for online and off-campus programs on the WVU Financial Services website. If you’re not sure what college your program is in, please see the list below.

Non-Resident Tuition

Many online graduate programs and select undergraduate classes are available to all students at in-state tuition rates thanks to WVU’s partnership with the Southern Regional Electronic Campus (SREC). See the *SREC designation on the list below. Non-resident or out-of-state tuition will be charged in the other programs. Students are assessed based on their major or program. For example, a student majoring in business will be charged at the College of Business and Economics rate even if he or she is taking a psychology class.

Important note: Students enrolled in WVU Online and Extended Campus classes do not have access to the Student Recreation Center or athletic facilities because they do not pay the full fees that on-campus students do. However, off-campus students may choose to pay an optional fee each semester. This provides access to the student recreation center, the PRT, and athletic events (if tickets are available). Information on student ticket distribution for home football games can be found at https://www.ticketreturn.com/wvu. Students who wish to pay this fee can do so by visiting the Office of Student Accounts located in the basement of Stewart Hall or by calling (304) 293-4006.

Billing Questions

Students will receive an e-mail via their MIX account when bills are due and they can easily pay through the STAR Information System. Students have an option of adding their parents' e-mail address to this notification. For more information please see http://studentaccounts.wvu.edu/. Students enrolled in both on campus and online undergraduate courses may experience delays with their financial aid.

Beginning August 1, 2013, a 2.5% processing fee will be assessed on all credit/debit card transactions. Students can pay on the STAR system with VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. If you elect to make a payment via telephone or in person, we accept all credit cards except American Express. If you are paying via debit card, please use the electronic check option available on line to avoid the fee. You can make a payment using any of the following payment methods with no additional fees added:

  • Electronic check
  • Personal check (by mail or in person)
  • Cashier’s check (by mail or in person)
  • Money order (by mail or in person)
  • Cash (in person only)


Financial Aid

West Virginia University uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form to determine eligibility for scholarships, low-interest student loans, and grants for graduate and undergraduate students. Adult students are strongly encouraged to fill out the form because income is not the only determinant for awards. The priority deadline for the FAFSA is March 1, but Financial Aid office continues to review and award aid through the two largest programs–the Federal Pell Grant and the Federal Direct Loan Program–throughout the year.
