At WVU Potomac State College, we want the best students – so we look at more than
tests and GPAs. We value your hard work and determination too. We have expanded
our scholarship tiers to offer even more students the opportunity to earn a WVU
No separate application is necessary for our scholarships. Once you are admitted,
you will be reviewed for scholarship eligibility.
Deadline for scholarship eligibility: May 1, 2021 for admission and July 15, 2021
for submission of updated GPA and test scores.
Potomac State College scholarships for Residents of Other States are fully integrated
with the scholarship program at West Virginia University. 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.
Value of scholarship at WVU will be determined by current value of scholarship
at WVU if a student changes campuses.
- PSC uses “Super Scores” for scholarship awarding, so students should submit all
scores from each section of the ACT or SAT if the test(s) is taken more than
once. The “Super Score” will be calculated using the highest component/sub-score
from all test information available to PSC.
- The old version of the SAT totals are based on the Critical Reading score plus
Math score. The new version of the SAT totals are based on the Evidence-based
Reading and Writing Score plus Math score.
- If a student is eligible for more than one scholarship from Potomac State College,
the student will be awarded the scholarship with the highest dollar value. To
retain scholarships for subsequent years, all scholars are required to maintain
specific cumulative grade-point averages and to complete a minimum number of
credits per year.
- Scholarship amounts may be affected if students are receiving need-based aid from
state or Federal programs
