Admitted Students

We are happy to help you on your enrollment journey to becoming a Mountaineer and preparing for your first steps on campus! That's why we compiled this checklist of all the action steps you'll need to complete along the way. Additionally, you can view checklists for new students on WVU's main site by selecting the link that best describes your student type: first-time freshman, transfer, international, or change of campus.

Congratulations! You've been admitted... now what?
