WVU Tech has suspended all in-person tours and events through September 7, 2020, in response to the continued threat of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). If you were registered for a tour or event, please check your email for more details.
We've provided answers to common questions here, plus helpful online resources.
If you have specific questions, contact your admissions counselor.
Is the admissions office at WVU Tech still open?
Yes! But to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have canceled all campus tours and in-person events. In addition, the WVU Tech Office of Admissions is no longer taking in-person appointments or walk-ins.
Our staff continues to be fully operational at this time and is striving to meet students’ needs as quickly as possible. Find answers to your questions below:
The WVU Tech Office of Admissions – Visitors Center is closed until further notice, but the staff is conducting all business from home on a regular schedule.

Is it too late to apply to WVU for the Summer 2020 or Fall 2020 terms?
No, but there are a few things to consider:
WVU Tech offers a rolling admissions policy, so our application continues to be open for the Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 terms. First-time freshman, and some transfer and international applicants, are required to submit a standardized test score along with other required admissions materials. With the cancellation of several spring test dates by ACT and College Board, students who have not taken a standardized test should be mindful of our enrollment timeline. It may be challenging to schedule a June or July test date and complete all necessary steps in time to enroll for the Fall 2020 term.
Our recruitment team can work with students to ensure fulfillment of all necessary requirements for admission in time for their term of choice.
When will campus visit operations resume?
WVU Tech has suspended all campus visits through September 7, 2020. Tours after that date are currently unaffected, but we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed.
Does WVU Tech adhere to the May 1 national deadline?
WVU Tech offers a rolling admissions policy and does not have a deadline to enroll, provided that space is available.
I have already filed an application with WVU Tech but need to send supporting documents. How can I submit my test scores and transcripts?
Applicants can send all official documentation needed for admissions (transcripts and/or test scores) via mail to 410 Neville Street Beckley, WV 25801 or via email (officially) to email@example.com.
Is the housing deposit still refundable if I do not attend WVU Tech?
If you decide not to attend WVU Tech and need to cancel your housing application, please email the Office of Campus Life at Tech-Campus-Life@mail.wvu.edu . Your $200 deposit will be fully refunded if you cancel by June 30. If you cancel after June 30, your deposit is forfeit.
My SAT or ACT testing day was canceled. Can I still apply?
WVU Tech requires an ACT or SAT score for first-time freshman students, and some transfer and international populations. We have not waived this requirement. If you have not taken a standardized test and are applying for the summer or fall 2020 terms, please contact your admissions counselor to discuss in more detail.
What is the deadline for receiving scholarships and financial aid?
WVU Tech will continue to award eligible students centralized merit- and need-based financial aid if admitted by July 15. A completed FAFSA must be on file to be eligible for need-based funding. For those already admitted, we will continue to accept updated GPAs and test scores through July 15 for review of increased merit.
Please note that eligibility requirements for the West Virginia Promise Scholarship differ from WVU's requirements for merit and aid.
Who do I contact if I’m having difficulty providing required application materials due to COVID-19 interruptions?
If you are having difficulty compiling your necessary application materials, including transcripts or standardized test scores, please contact your admissions counselor to discuss your situation.
Who do I contact with questions about financial aid or my student account?
The WVU Tech Office of Financial aid is currently working remotely. Rest assured though, they are working daily on taking care of matters just like yours! You can find out how to contact our Financial Aid counselors here.
