If a student decides to change campuses from Potomac State to WVU and meets the academic standards for these scholarships, the student will be eligible to continue to receive these scholarships at WVU at the current WVU value. Students in PSC four-year programs are eligible for the scholarships for up to four years. The Catamount Award is not a transferable scholarship.
