Undergraduate Application

WVU Online Undergraduate Applicant

WVU Online has nine undergraduate degrees and two undergraduate certificate options. As a potential online undergraduate student, we’d like you to know that online students pay different tuitions and fees than traditional on-campus students. Because of this, students enrolled in online programs will 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

Please complete the following steps:

  • Review the application considerations and deadlines below.
  • Create an account and complete the WVU Online Application.
  • Pay the $50 application fee.
  • Submit the application.
  • Request official transcripts from all institutions attended (other than WVU), or high school transcripts if fewer than 24 college credits be sent to:
    WVU Office of Admissions
    PO Box 6009
    Morgantown, WV 26506-6009
    or
    Email: WVUadmissions@mail.wvu.edu

Application Considerations

University GPA Requirement

  1. Undergraduate degree-seeking applicants must self-report your courses and grades. Learn about options for submitting high school transcripts.
  2. If not applying test optional, submit your test scores. Learn how to submit your ACT or SAT scores. WVU super scores, so be sure to submit all test dates.
  3. Wait for your decision. Essays and recommendations are not required. We will process a decision within 3-4 weeks after receiving a completed application and supporting documents. Students will receive an email once admitted and a letter by mail within two weeks.

Transfer Students

If you have previously completed coursework at other institutions, have the official transcripts mailed directly to:

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

Or email to: WVUadmissions@mail.wvu.edu

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.

Transfer Students: 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.

No application fee is required to submit the change of campus application.
