Other Tuition AgreementsBesides the Academic Common Market, WVU has additional tuition agreements with Ohio and other institutions.
These agreements allow certain out-of-state students to pay in-state tuition rates.
Other Tuition Agreements
The Academic Common Market (ACM) is the most well-known tuition agreement that WVU has with other states. However, the university has additional agreements that might be of benefit for certain students.
Unlike the ACM, students who qualify for the following reciprocity agreements have the in-state tuition rates applied automatically. Students do not need to apply to qualify for these rates.
Be sure to follow the Tuition Reciprocity Agreement Guidelines if you participate.
Garrett County, Maryland, Reciprocity Agreement
WVU has a special agreement to enroll residents of Garrett County, Maryland, as full-time (12 credit hours) undergraduate degree seeking students at resident tuition and fee rates. This is based on criteria established by WVU at its main campus in Morgantown and its Potomac State College campus in Keyser.
Students in the Tuition Reciprocity Agreement program must remain in good academic standing (2.0 or better GPA) and continue to make good academic progress toward entry into the major or completion of major program requirements.
Students on probation or judged to not be making progress toward entry into or completion of the approved program will be removed from the Reciprocity Agreement Program and charged out-of-state tuition.
Students taking summer classes may take up to 12 credit hours across both 6-week sessions. The courses must be major specific.
Deadlines for applying, reapplying or changing to a new major:
Fall Semester – July 31
Spring Semester – December 15
Summer Term – April 30
Ohio Reciprocity Agreement
As the result of a special agreement, students from Ohio who are fully admitted to certain majors can enroll at WVU and pay in-state tuition rates.
- Students must be enrolled full time in an approved program as authorized by the Reciprocity Agreement. Additional programs outside of the approved major's plan of study are not eligible for resident tuition.
Students must be admitted to both the University and the particular major.
These programs include:

*In-state tuition only applicable for the junior and senior years.
Students will be eligible for the tuition reduction once they move into their specific engineering discipline, which typically happens after the first year, once a student has completed the following classes and has a 2.25 GPA: Engineering 101, Engineering 102, Engineering 199,Math 155, Chemistry 115, and English 101. In addition, acceptance into the Statler College’s B.S. degree in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering is highly competitive.
