Tuition & Fees

The deadline for paying 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 304-424-8223.

Information regarding your charges, financial aid, and payment options can be found here.

Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance refers to the average amount a full-time student enrolled in classes in WVU Parkersburg can expect to spend during the semester. This number is different than your actual tuition and fee cost – those are called direct costs and the cost of attendance considers both direct and indirect costs. It is different for students living independently or at home, or who are residents of West Virginia and Ohio or from another state.

The Cost of Attendance covers:

Determination of COA

Every year, WVU Parkersburg’s Financial Aid Office reviews the cost of attendance of nearby, non-resident institutions. Other colleges in the West Virginia Community and Technical College System are considered as comparable because all of the schools are located in similar geographic areas as WVU Parkersburg. Each year, the WVU Parkersburg Board of Governors establish, with the approval of the West Virginia Community and Technical College System, the cost of tuition per credit hour. The cost of room and board is based on WVU Parkersburg’s status as a commuter college and the fact that we have no on-campus housing. The Cost of Attendance is subject to change depending on legislative activity. It sets the maximum amount of financial aid a student can receive for the year. It represents a modest budget by which a student can live adequately while attending WVU Parkersburg.
