How to Connect with Us

Virtual Options

High School Visits

WVU representatives accommodate requests for school visits whenever possible. We are pleased to share information in the classroom, offer “lunch and learn” sessions and host virtual presentations when we can’t visit in person.

Did you know? We have also collected our resources for students who are still exploring schools, admitted students and their families.

  • Enrolled in a federal, state or local program that aids students from low-income families (Upward Bound or GEAR UP, for example).
  • Lives in federally subsidized housing, a foster home or is homeless.

Please contact your regional recruiter if you have concerns about a student who doesn’t automatically qualify for a fee waiver. Those who have visited campus and need a waiver code should also contact their WVU regional recruiter.

Career Pathways and Choosing a Major

WVU has over 140 undergraduate majors available for students. Students are strongly encouraged to apply into their major of choice since WVU Admissions will review a student’s application for their major first. If a student does not earn admission to their major, WVU Admissions will review the student’s file for an undecided major.

Help your student check out all of our career pathways! Visit the Career Pathways page and click on the desired pathway to learn about the possibilities on our campus.

Is your student interested in knowing what their academic experience could look like throughout their years on campus? Visit the majors list and click on a major so they can explore academic opportunities, student organizations, living-learning communities, popular courses and careers.
