Academic policy changes announced

As we continue to look for ways to improve and increase retention and time-to-degree, some WVU Academic Policy Changes will be going into place starting in fall 2019. 

This link highlights some of the main areas that we expect may have more far reaching impacts and gives basic details on each policy and why each is being put in place: https://undergraduate.wvu.edu/strategies/academic-policy-committee/students-need-to-know.

Please make yourself familiar with each of these policies as you plan ahead for advising appointments to avoid impacts on your time-to-degree, financial aid and/or degree path. Faculty, advisors and staff have also been made aware of these changes but your academic career is your own, so please take the time to also review and understand these changes. 

These, along with all other academic policies, will also be reflected in the WVU Catalog moving forward. 

If you have any questions, please contact your advisor.
