Golden Bear Welcome Days
The Start of Your New Journey

Golden Bear Welcome Days are designed to register new students for their college classes and get you (and your family) familiar with campus, services and more. It's the best way to make sure we're all starting that first day off on the right foot.

Students that reside within 300 miles from campus are required to sign up at the below link.

Students that reside 300+ miles from campus OR are considered an International Student can RSVP at the below link for remote registration. 

Please Note: The option to remote register is reserved for International students and those living more than 300 miles from campus. All other admits must RSVP at the traditional link above. 

Golden Bear Welcome Day

Congratulations on your acceptance to WVU Tech!

The Process: 

To ensure you're on the right path to graduation, your next step is to sign up for a Golden Bear Welcome Day. You'll receive a confirmation email immediately after you RSVP above. This appointment is where you'll connect with an academic advisor to discuss your degree plan, go over your career goals and sign up for the right classes. You can also learn about the services we offer to help you with the transition to college and beyond. You will receive an additional confirmation email with specific details regarding your Golden Bear Welcome Day leading up to the date and time you selected. 

For admitted students, Golden Bear Welcome Day is a great opportunity to get to know campus, find out about campus services that will help you along the way, pick up your new official WVU Tech student ID - and meet new students just like you. (If you have not yet been admitted, apply today). 

If you're a newly admitted student, make sure you're following the steps available on our admitted students page, and be sure to claim your MIX email account as soon as possible.

Be Advised:  If you have earned college credit via college courses, Advanced Placement (AP) examinations, International Baccalaureate (IB) courses or College Level Examination Program (CLEP), please make sure to provide us with transcripts/test scores that reflect this prior to registration.

For parents and families, it's the absolute best way to learn about where your student will be learning. You'll explore various campus departments, meet with the folks who will be helping your favorite student for the next four years and find helpful tips for making sure your student thrives as a Golden Bear.

See you soon, Golden Bears!

Note: Students beyond 300 miles (including international students) unable to attend a Golden Bear Welcome Day should RSVP for a remote session at the second link found at the top of this page listed "International & Students of Distance".
