Scholarship Information

2019 Scholarship Amounts by GPA & ACT/SAT Scores

At West Virginia University, we want the best and brightest students — not just the high scorers. Hard work, determination and grit are just as important to us as tests and GPAs.

That’s why 93% of our new undergrads receive financial aid, and 68% of incoming freshmen earn scholarships. But we want every student to find their fit here.

So we’re expanding our scholarship tiers to offer even more students the opportunity to turn their passions into a lifelong purpose.
