In fall 2019, WVU Online implemented a $25.00 per credit hour Online Learning Student Support Fee on all online courses marked Web Off Campus (WEBOC) with a Schedule Type Web Based (W). This fee caps at 3-credit hours per course, or $75.00.
Choosing to implement a new fee is never easy, but it was time that we offered our online students the same resources that are available on-campus. All Mountaineers deserve access to resources that promote student success initiatives such as online tutoring and proctoring, an online Writing Center, virtual mental health services via Talkspace, and accessibility resources for those students who may need learning accommodations.
We understand that you probably have questions, so we created a list of Frequently Asked Questions to better explain the new fee, cost, assessment, and how it will be used.
Whew. That’s a pretty exhaustive list. But, if we’ve missed something we would love to hear from you! If you have questions about the fee, please contact WVU Online at 1-800-253-2762 and one of our friendly Admission Coaches can help.
