Admitted Students


Next Steps

Review what to do after acceptance to the Honors Foundations program.

  1. Complete Steps to Enrollment

    All admitted students should follow the list on the WVU Admissions Admitted Students website. Students should be sure to activate their WVU Login as soon as possible. By activating this login, students will gain access to their WVU MIX email account. For many University offices, including the Honors College, this will be the primary method of communication with students. Be sure to check your MIX email account frequently for updates.

    Don’t know how to activate your MIX email account? Follow the instructions here.

  3. Prepare For the Honors Day of Service

    Sunday, Aug. 18, 2024

    The purpose of the Honors Day of Service is to welcome new Honors students to campus and connect them with their mentors, Honors College staff and the local community. This event is required for all incoming first-year students.

  4. Complete Required Summer Reading

    All Honors College students are required to read the WVU Campus Read and write a short essay as their first assignment for their HONR 102 course. Book title and information was emailed to students in early June. Assignment information will be emailed to students in early July.
