Prospective Students

The HS ACCESS-Morgantown Early College Program enables you to reach your academic goals quicker and cheaper by taking West Virginia University courses at a reduced tuition while you are still in high school. These courses can be taken completely online or during the school day in participating high schools. Additionally, HS ACCESS will provide a support network for you whether you take courses online or in your high school. Your classes will be taught by trained college instructors or high school teachers.


Students who are currently being home-schooled must still apply online by following Steps 1 & 2 of the application process. The HS ACCESS program MUST have your printed academic transcript to accompany your Enrollment Authorization Form upon applying. Your home-school teacher or educational coordinator's signature will be required on the enrollment form to verify your GPA and current academic standing.  

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. 

Please note that required textbooks, access codes, lab kits, or other course materials are NOT included in the reduced tuition cost. Students and parents are solely responsible for these expenses when applicable.
