Worry about how you're going to tackle college - not how you're going to pay for it.

At Potomac State College, we’re committed to providing affordable, quality education. We offer great value and entrance into the WVU system at a very affordable cost.  

Potomac State College has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. Grants, Federal Work-Study and federal loans all require the FAFSA. The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the first step in getting the help you need to achieve your dreams. Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible – it’s available each October 1 – and make sure to include the WVU school code of 003827. We use the same school code for every WVU campus, including Potomac State.

We have financial aid counselors in our Office of Enrollment Services who will help you every step of the way. We know this might be the first time that you and  your family have tackled the financial aid process.  Let us help! Submit an online request at for further assistance.
