Scholarships at WVU Potomac State College
It’s easy to qualify for our merit-based scholarships. Just submit your application for admission and we’ll review for our institutional scholarships. And, starting with the Fall 2021 term, applicants who do not submit ACT or SAT scores may also qualify for institutional scholarships!
Our admissions application and merit awarding both include a no-harm policy – students will not be penalized whether applying with scores or not. We also welcome changes to your test optional status and admitted students may submit scores through May 1 if electing to qualify for score sender merit awards.
If you change campuses to WVU Morgantown or WVU Beckley when you leave Potomac State, your scholarship will go with you as long as you’ve met renewal criteria.
