Located in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia, West Liberty University is a four-year traditional college offering a variety of academic programs and graduate degrees as well. West Liberty offers a challenging academic atmosphere for its students.
In addition to an application for admission, students must have official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended. Students with less then 28 semester hours must have official transcripts and ACT or SAT scores sent from the high school. A cumulative grade point average of at least a 2.0 is required for transfer students. A student with slightly less than a 2.0 may be considered for admission by the Committee on Admissions and Credits if extenuating circumstances are involved. Evidence of honorable withdraw from a previous college must also be obtained. And if planning to live on campus, one must complete a Residence Life Application and return it with a $100 damage deposit. Students must also make an appointment with the Admissions Office to discuss transfer of credits and with someone in your major field or interest.
No more than 72 credit hours may be transferred from a two-year college. All grades made previously in college level courses are included in the grade point average calculation. To graduate from West Liberty transfer students must have at least a 2.0 for all college-level work attempted.
