West Virginia University offers many specific programs and opportunities for the veteran who chooses to enroll on our campus. These have been established and continue to be enhanced in recognition of the contributions that veterans have made in service to our country and that they continue to make as members of the WVU Mountaineer family.

Courses Designed for Veteran Students

The goal of veteran friendly classes is to foster a setting where students can be academically successful while creating an environment for students with similar backgrounds. These classes are voluntary and will count for academic credit. Depending on your major, you may be able to use the courses toward a GEF requirement. 

Veteran Success Program

The West Virginia University Veteran Success Program is designed for veterans who are on academic probation but are not suspendable based on GPA. This program helps students achieve a GPA of 2.0 or above so they can be transferred to their department of choice and subsequently graduate from WVU! Falling behind happens. Doing something about it takes effort. We are here to assist you and hope you will make full use of our services. Learn more.

Adventure WV Veterans

Since 2010, Adventure has been serving WVU’s student veteran community through outdoor and adventure based programs. The activities and programs vary, but the goal is to offer fun, engaging opportunities that promote connection with fellow veterans and other members of the WVU community. Almost all programs offered to veterans are free or heavily subsidized by generous donors. WVU has a commitment to helping our veteran students succeed.
