West Virginia University, divisional campuses, plans to open for fall, holds line on tuition, fees for ’20-’21 year
Envisioning a return of students to its three campuses in the fall, the West Virginia University Board of Governors announced Friday (May 1) that base tuition and fees will remain unchanged for the academic year beginning in August.
“We have every hope and expectation of safely resuming in-person education in Morgantown, Beckley and Keyser for the fall semester,” President Gordon Gee said. “The safety and well-being of students, faculty and staff, as well as the community will drive decisions, but we believe it will be possible to restart classes on campus, albeit with new measures, guidelines and precautions to inhibit the spread of COVID-19.”
Congratulations to the students who were honored with Dean’s or President’s List academic honors for the Fall 2019 term.
The President’s List honors students with an Institutional GPA for the term that is equal to 4.0. Students must have a term institutional GPA that falls between 3.50 and 3.99 to qualify for the Dean’s List. For either list, qualifying students must have completed a minimum of 12 credit hours of coursework and cannot have a “W” and “I.”

It’s cold in Beckley. The snow isn’t sticking, but it looks like it might soon. Even so, there’s a sense of warmth as students and employees make their way across campus with their bags and boxes of canned goods. It’s not the coffee in their cups. It’s not the layers of scarves and winter jackets and woolen hats. It’s that glow that comes from feeling like you’re part of something bigger. It’s the heart of service that beats in these Golden Bears.
Giving back has always been a cornerstone of the WVU Tech community. As 2019 winds down and the that community looks to a new decade bursting with possibility, they also mark a banner year in service.
