West Virginia University and Raise.Me 

RaiseMe is a newly launched college preparedness and scholarship tracking program designed to encourage high school students to start thinking about paying for college before they ever apply. By creating a free online profile similar to that of other social platforms, students in grades eight through twelve are able to input their academic, personal, professional, and recreational achievements to track their earning potential toward microscholarship dollars at WVU. 

RaiseMe makes scholarships even more accessible and understandable for ALL students, even if you are low-income or first generation. The RaiseMe platform is easy to navigate and allows students and parents to safely and securely review, track, and tally microscholarship dollars prior to their high school graduation.  

Click on the RaiseMe link to get started. You have absolutely nothing to lose...and everything to gain. Start earning scholarship dollars now!   


Students That Ride The Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) System At WVU:

All HS ACCESS Students should account for travel and wait times if you plan to use the PRT as a primary mode of transportation to and from your on-campus classes. Unexpected technical issues and/or severe weather can make service outages longer and more frequent. 

***PLEASE NOTE:  High School students cannot use their WVU ID's to ride the PRT's. The WVU ID's are for identification purposes only while you are taking WVU courses.*** 

PRT outages are posted live on the WVU Department of Transportation’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WVU-DOT-104121102981415/

Please Review WVU's Academic Standards and Guidelines, Student Conduct Codes, and Academic Dishonesty and Integrity Policies that will apply to ALL admitted ACCESS students:
