When do I submit my academic deposit? Is there a deadline?

If you are accepted to WVU as an undergraduate student, we will send instructions for paying your academic deposit to your WVU email address. The academic deposit is $150 for West Virginia residents and $250 for all other students. The academic deposit is required to continue with additional onboarding steps, including housing selection, registration for New Student Orientation and the math placement assessment.

The academic deposit is fully refundable, and the housing deposit is partially refundable, if you cancel your attendance by **May 1.

**We have extended the fall 2024 cancellation and refund deadline to June 1 due to the late release of the 2024-2025 FAFSA.
