WVU Undergraduate Admissions
The College of Education and Human Services offers several master's and doctoral
program options to our students. Admission to our master's
programs is limited to holders of baccalaureate or equivalent degrees
from higher education institutions. Admission to our doctoral programs is limited
to holders of baccalaureate and master's degrees. Specific admission requirements
are also set by each program within the College. Please refer
program's departmental website
for specific admission information.
For more information on the WVU graduate admission and application process,
please visit the WVU Graduate Education website.
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
