Admission to the University does not ensure admission into a specific school or college. Some colleges and programs have additional admission standards that exceed the requirements for admission to WVU.

Transfer Students

You are considered a transfer student if you have completed any post-secondary (after high school) work at an accredited college/institution. To be eligible to enroll as a transfer student at WVU, students must have at least a 2.0 grade point average in all college work attempted. In addition, transfer students who have fewer than 24 transferable credit hours must also meet freshman admission standards. Some individual programs and majors have different course requirements and higher grade point average requirements; please review the various program requirements.
