Answer:

West Virginia University is a public university located in Morgantown, West Virginia. WVU accepts transfer credits from accredited institutions.

If you are applying with more than 24 credit hours, you are considered a transfer student applicant. Not all courses transfer directly to a corresponding WVU course. If the university determines that a course has a corresponding course offered at WVU, it will go on your transcript as that new course designation. If it does not have an equivalent at WVU but is still a valid transfer credit, the university will attempt to apply it appropriately. For example, a 100-level history class will be designated as HIST-1TC, with the TC marking it as a transfer credit. Some programs will count these credits toward degree requirements, while others will count them as general education requirements or electives.

You can transfer in fewer than 24 credit hours but will need to follow the standard undergraduate admissions procedures for a first-year student. The same course evaluation process will translate your transfer credits to the WVU system.
