WVU offers a wide variety of courses during the summer. Visit summer.wvu.edu for more information.
Below are the two most frequent questions regarding summer and PROMISE.
Can I use PROMISE for summer?
Can I use summer to make up academic progress for my PROMISE scholarship renewal?
Classes taken during summer sessions can be counted toward your academic progress for PROMISE as a renewal student. Please remember that credit for a course taken again during the same award year - fall, spring, and summer - to improve a grade or for any other purpose will only be counted once towards meeting the earned hours requirement for PROMISE renewal.
You may also take summer courses at other institutions in order to regain your PROMISE scholarship eligibility as long as they transfer back to WVU as recognized earned credit hours and grades. If you plan to take courses at another university or college, you must complete the Transient Student Application and obtain permission from your academic advisor.
It is your responsibility to notify the Mountaineer Hub once you can view
those grades in
STAR so they can reevaluate your PROMISE status.
