Institutional Scholarships for Incoming Freshmen

Each year, West Virginia University offers over 34 million dollars in scholarships to over 7000 first-year students from West Virginia and around the world. 

The criteria for scholarship awards are based on high school GPA from your transcript at the time of application, and the test scores from the ACT or SAT.  Effective with the incoming freshman class 2015, WVU uses “Super Scores” for scholarship awarding, so be sure to submit all scores from each section of the ACT or SAT if you take the test more than once. “Super Scores” are calculated using the highest component/subscore from all test information available to us.

Note: students taking the new version of the SAT test, first given in March, 2016, have different test score requirements than those taking the test prior to March, 2016.  Super scoring will only be done for each version of the SAT.  New SAT scores will not be used with old SAT scores to obtain a super score.

Scholarship awards, combined with financial aid grants, loans, or work study opportunities can offer the student an opportunity to further their study at West Virginia University.
