Transfer Students

We realize that transferring from one educational institution to another can be a difficult process. West Virginia University is here to help with that process. To be eligible to enroll as a transfer student, students must have at least a 2.0 grade point average in all college work attempted. In addition, transfer students who have fewer than 24 transferable credit hours must also meet WVU freshman admission standards. A few CEHS programs require a higher grade point average for transfer student admission.  A 3.00 overall grade point average is required for admission consideration for education and pre-speech pathology and audiology programs. A 2.50 overall GPA is required for admission consideration for the child development and family studies program.
   
For step-by-step instructions on how to begin the transfer process to West Virginia University, visit the Transfer Students Admissions page of the WVU Undergraduate Admissions Website.
