Induction Ceremony

The purpose of the Induction Ceremony is to formally welcome new Honors students to the Honors College. Students, parents and guests will be welcomed by the Dean of the Honors College and Honors College staff.  

The induction ceremony is a pinning ceremony, and new Honors students will all receive the official WVU Honors College pin to signify and solidify they are part of the Honors College community.  

This is a required event for new first-time freshmen Honors students. Up to two guests per student are welcome to attend the ceremony due to limited space.  Please note the full Honors early move-in schedule here.

All Honors College freshmen are required to move in one day early, helping Honors students and their families avoid regular move-in day traffic. 

Friday, August 10

Throughout Day - Early Move-In

Honors College students will move in on  Friday, Aug. 10, 2018. Move-in times are assigned by student birth month:

  • January, February, March, April: 8-10 a.m.
  • May, June, July, August: 10-12 p.m.
  • September, October, November, December: 12-2 p.m.

All Honors College freshmen are required to move in one day early, helping Honors students and their families avoid regular move-in day traffic.

Students' families are encouraged to stay on campus through Friday evening, when the Honors College Induction Ceremony will take place. 

Please note: like all early move-in programs, students are assessed a pro-rated  early move-in fee. This fee will not appear on a student's bill until mid-August, after students have moved in. This fee varies based on the dorm the student has selected, but is usually  around $25. Please note that this fee is greatly reduced from the regular early move-in fee imposed on other students.
