Admission for Current WVU First-Semester Freshmen

Any student who attends WVU and has earned between 14 and 34 credit hours (or is in the first year of a four-year degree-path), and has maintained a 3.7 cumulative GPA without an I or W on your transcript may submit an application to join the Honors Foundations Program. Students who have earned between 14 and 34 credit hours who have I's or W's on their transcript will be reviewed for eligibility on a case-by-case basis.

Students who think they may qualify should apply near the end of their first full semester at WVU. Students must include a copy of their student transcript (an unofficial copy is acceptable—simply go to your unofficial transcript page in STAR and print the page as a PDF to save the transcript, and upload to our application).

Applications will be reviewed before the first official day of classes for the new semester, so that students may adjust their schedules pending admission.
