College Commons Week


The College Commons Week initiative is designed to assist West Virginia students during the transition from high school to college. Staff from more than 25 West Virginia colleges and universities will join College for West Virginia to discuss important steps during the college enrollment and transition process. Admissions representatives from each institution will be available to share necessary information students and families will need to be prepared for college. Have questions about who to contact or what to do? Join CFWV and your college campus representative as we answer questions like:

Who is my academic advisor?

What deposits or fees need paid before arriving on campus?

How do I create a schedule?  Can I add/drop classes later?

How do I declare or switch a major?

When should I buy textbooks?

What kind of career/academic advising services are offered?

Who do I speak with to find out about my financial aid package?

Are there financial aid opportunities through the school?

What resources are available to help first-year students?

Are there campus-wide emergency alerts?

If I feel overwhelmed and need to talk to somebody, where should I go?

And much more…
