Ohio Tuition Reciprocity Agreement
Ohio residents directly admitted to approved majors may qualify for in-state tuition.
How do I qualify?
As the result of a special agreement, first-time students from Ohio who are directly admitted to certain majors can enroll at WVU and pay in-state tuition rates.
- You must be admitted to WVU and directly admitted to an approved major.
- A list of eligible majors is published annually and may change year-to-year.
- If you receive the reduced tuition benefit, you are not eligible for merit scholarships. Non-resident scholarships will not be reinstated if you move to a non-reciprocity major after enrolling at WVU.
- If dual majoring, both majors must be approved Ohio Reciprocity majors. First-time students are not approved for dual majors until meeting with their academic adviser during New Student Orientation.
Who should I contact for more information?
How do I maintain eligibility?
You will receive the in-state tuition rate as long as you maintain renewal requirements or until the completion of a bachelor's degree – whichever comes first.
Students who lose eligibility have a limited time to appeal with the Provost’s Office. If denied eligibility, out-of-state tuition and fees will be assessed and non-resident scholarships will not be reinstated.
Renewal RequirementsYou will be evaluated for the tuition benefit renewal at the end of each spring.
If you are not progressing in your approved tuition benefit major, you will be removed from the program and will have a limited time to appeal with the Provost's Office.
- Remain in good academic standing (2.0 overall GPA).
- Meet requirements for the tuition benefit major (which may include a GPA greater than 2.0).
- Complete 67% of all attempted hours. To calculate this percentage, students can divide their "Earned Hours" by their "Attempted Hours."
- Complete their degree within 150% of the published time frame for degree completion for their program of study. For example, in undergraduate programs requiring 120 hours, students must obtain their degrees within 180 attempted hours (120 x 1.5 = 180).
