It seems obvious: College is different than high school. The course work is harder, the classes are structured differently and you'll shoulder more responsibility.
Our First-Year Programs help you bridge the gap to ensure a successful freshman year at WVU.
First-Year Academy is the official academic kick-off to the fall semester.
All incoming freshman take a First-Year Seminar course at WVU.
For select first-time college students, First-Year Pathway helps build a solid academic foundation.
Freshmen on academic probation at the end of their first semester are automatically enrolled in the WVU PASS program and attend the one-day Mid-Year Academy at the beginning of their second semester.
Preparing to Achieve Student Success
The Preparing to Achieve Student Success (PASS) Program is designed to help first-year students on academic probation get back on track.
