Intellectual Property: Sale of Course Materials Prohibited
 

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."

Refund Policy
 

The refund schedule, determined by the Higher Education Policy Commission, is available on the WVU Student Accounts website.

WVU Online Registration Procedure

 

Students begin registering for their WVU Online 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 via phone. Review the departmental approval procedure at http://online.wvu.edu/About/Policies to be sure approvals are processed properly.

 

WVU Online 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. 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/.
