Early Entrance High School Students
High school students may attend West Virginia Northern while still in high school any semester after the end of their sophomore year. This option is also available for home-schooled students. Early Entrance students who successfully complete college-level courses may use the credits toward graduation at Northern and/or have the credits transferred to other colleges and universities.
In order to register for college coursework while in high school, a student must submit an Early Entrance application. This application must include permission of the student's parent/guardian as well as the high school principal or designee. See Applications page to print a copy of the Early Entrance application.
Early Entrance students are eligible for a reduced tuition rate which is published on the College's Schedule of Tuition page. Additional assistance is available through the WVNCC Foundation Assistance Application.
If Early Entrance students wish to have transcripts of grades sent to any third party, they may do so by completing transcript request forms and paying the appropriate fees. See the Request a Transcript page for details. If you have any questions about becoming an Early Entrance student, please contact your Campus Counselor.
