* Tuition and fees are usually not the only educational expenses you may have while pursuing a degree. You may have other costs such as books, supplies and living expenses. Please see the Estimate Costs and Aid webpage for how to estimate and plan for other potential expenses.

The only requirement for admission into the Hospitality (Culinary) program is that you have completed a high school diploma, GED, TASAC, or HiSET!

The Hospitality (Culinary) program is unique in that it's a WVU Potomac State College program offered only on the Beckley Campus. That makes our application process for this program a little different (but there's still no application fee).

To get started, you'll need to...

  1. Set up an account at the link below. This will give you access to the WVU System application.
  2. Select the Keyser campus to access the PSC application.
  3. Select "Hospitality (Culinary) - offered on the Beckley campus" as your intended major.
  4. Complete all the additional required information, and submit your application.
