Admission Procedures and Processes for Graduate Programs
All applicants must complete an Application for Graduate Admission available online. The completed application and all undergraduate and graduate transcripts, required test scores, and any additional materials required by the specific program should be submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office, WVWC, 59 College Avenue, Buckhannon, WV 26201.
The Graduate Admission Office will verify that your application is complete and then forward to the Program Director for review by each program’s faculty Admission Committee. Applicants are notified generally within two to three weeks of receipt of the complete application.
Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements for a program, but who appear to be capable of performing well in graduate work, may be accepted provisionally. The provisional acceptance will be lifted upon the student’s successful completion of the specific provisional requirements cited in their provisional acceptance letter. Failure to meet the conditions and requirements of the provisional acceptance within the first year of graduate work will result in the student being academically suspended.
Accepted students are required to submit a $200 enrollment deposit, if domestic, and $500, if international, upon receipt of acceptance to secure the student’s place in the program and classes. The deposit will be applied to the student’s first semester tuition and fees.
