The HS ACCESS 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, HS ACCESS will provide a support network for your child whether they take courses online or in their high school. An ACCESS Ambassador will mentor and guide students throughout their transition to college study. All WVU classes will be taught by trained college Professors, instructors, or facilitated by high school teachers.

High School ACCESS Tuition

When WVU courses are offered to high school students, a reduced tuition structure is applied. The high school tuition for each academic term is only $25 per credit hour for ALL students. 

There is never an application fee when you apply to the High School ACCESS program at WVU. If you have mistakenly submitted a payment during the initial application process, please email the HS ACCESS office at
