Parents/Guardians

The ACCESS WVU Early College Program enables your son or daughter to reach their academic goals quicker and cheaper by taking West Virginia University courses at a reduced tuition while they are still in high school.

These courses can be taken completely online or during the school day as dual credit options in participating high schools. Additionally, ACCESS WVU will provide a support network for your child whether they take courses online or in their high school. A student support coach will mentor and guide students in the transition to college study. All classes will be taught by trained college instructors or facilitated by high school teachers.

ACCESS WVU Tuition

When WVU courses are offered to high school students, a reduced tuition structure is applied. The high school tuition for the 2016-2017 academic year is only $75 per credit hour.

Available Courses

High school students have multiple options for enrolling in West Virginia University courses:

  • Online: Self-motivated high school students can enroll in a select set of college courses completely online – 24/7, anywhere they have access to high speed internet
  • On-Campus: High school students within commuting distance of WVU's Downtown and Evansdale campuses can enroll in courses on campus along with traditional college students.
