The West Virginia University at Parkersburg Board of Governors and the West Virginia Community and Technical College Council have approved the following tuition and fees:


The deadline for pay Summer 2019 tuition and fees is May 15, 2019. Students who have not paid their tuition and fees in full or set up a payment plan with the Business Office by this date will be dropped from their classes.

Students are responsible for any tuition, fees, and any other charges not covered by financial aid or a third party payer. If you have questions about why your financial aid has not covered your balance due, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 304-424-8310. If you have questions about your third party payer, please contact the Business Office at 304-424-8233.

Details of your charges and applied financial aid are available by logging into the OLSIS online billing system. Click here to access OLSIS.

Once logged in, choose Student Records > Student Accounts > Account Detail for Term > Summer 2019. A report will list all of your charges at the top along with your authorized financial aid at the bottom. The final line on the report titled “Account Balance net of Authorized Financial Aid” indicates how much you are responsible for paying by May 15. If you do not understand the information in your OLSIS account, call the Business Office at 304-424-8223 or Financial Aid at 304-424-8310.

If you are unable to pay your balance at one time, we offer an interest free payment plan (not available to F-1 Visa International Students). To establish a valid payment plan, contact the Business Office at 304-424-8223 or stop by in person.


You pay for the first 12 hours, we pay the rest!

Additional credit hours are paid for by the college – making more of your financial aid available for books, fees and other college expenses. You can afford WVU Parkersburg’s high-quality education. We will help you reach your dreams.
