Transfer Student Scholarships

Current scholarship information and values pertain to incoming freshmen and first-time transfer for fall 2024 and is not retroactive to previous classes or currently enrolled students. Students entering WVU Potomac State College prior to fall 2024 semester may have been offered different scholarships and/or amounts. Future students may also have different criteria or values.

No separate application is necessary for consideration. Students must be admitted by  June 1  to the WVU Potomac State College campus as an incoming, first-time transfer student coming from another institution outside of the WVU system. As part of the admissions process, students must submit official transcripts to the Office of Enrollment Services.

WVU Potomac State College awards numerous academic scholarships to incoming students.

Automatic Consideration Based on Admission

Top Facts

  1. For first-time freshmen, scholarship offers are made on an ongoing basis beginning approximately by December for the upcoming academic year. For first-time transfers, scholarship offers usually begin in March.
  2. Scholarship amounts may be affected if students are receiving additional financial aid or assistance. See our  Scholarship FAQs webpage for information on receiving multiple scholarships and/or aid.
  3. You may also qualify for other financial resources to assist with educational expenses. For priority consideration, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to March 1. To receive complete financial aid and scholarship offer from WVU Potomac State College as quickly as possible, we encourage students to submit the FAFSA when it becomes available each year on October 1. Please note the Department of Education has delayed the launch of the 2024-2025 FAFSA. For the most up-to-date information, visit the  Federal Student Aid webpage.
