Summer BOOST

Summer Boost is a program designed to help currently enrolled students at WVU increase their cumulative GPA and earn course credit during the summer term. This program will provide students with resources that will help in academic success. Upon completion of the program, with a C or better in each course, students are eligible for a summer stipend. In-state students can earn up to 30% of university tuition. Metro students can earn up to 35% of university tuition. Out-of-state students can earn up to 40% of university tuition. Students must be enrolled in a regular summer term course (between May 13, 2024, and August 2, 2024).

Maymester 2024 course sections are not supported through this program. Classes may be offered by WVU Main or WVU Tech Campuses.

Participants must meet ONE of the following eligibility requirements:

Program Requirements for Tuition Stipend

The tuition stipend for Summer BOOST participants is equivalent to 30% of university tuition for in-state students, 35% for metro students, and 40% for out-of-state students for the summer 2024 term. Other charges such as college tuition and university fees may still apply.

Summer BOOST participants are required to complete the academic resource listed in their individualized success plan. The following actions are required for tuition stipend consideration:

Benefits of the Program

Students can raise their cumulative GPA (CGPA) by retaking courses where a higher grade is desired. By focusing on just these classes, students can have an opportunity to earn the CGPA needed to start the next school year in good academic standing or  maintain the PROMISE and Institutional Scholarships. By taking a summer course, eligible students can stay on track for graduation.

Other benefits include:

  • Students can take part in smaller, more intensive classes.
  • Students can utilize success coaches, tutors, and workshops to help improve academic performance.
  • Students on academic suspension can potentially raise their CGPA sufficiently to return to WVU for the upcoming fall term.
  • Students who earn a C or better in each attempted course and complete the academic resource requirement are eligible for a tuition stipend to be applied as a credit to the student account.
