Merit-based Scholarships

Incoming freshmen may qualify for merit-based scholarships based on GPAs and SAT/ACT test scores. No additional application is necessary. The WVU John Chambers College of Business and Economics has scholarships for both in state and out-of-state incoming freshmen that greatly reduce the cost of attendance. The criteria for each is different.
