WVSU hosts On-the-Spot Decision Day for Applicants Dec. 8

INSTITUTE, W.Va. – Immediate admission decisions are available to students interested in attending West Virginia State University in the spring or fall of 2013 during On-the-Spot Decision Day, Saturday, Dec. 8.

Designed for both first-time freshman and transfer students, the event will begin at 10 a.m. in the Wilson University Union and will feature presentations on admissions and financial aid. Tours of the Institute campus will also be available to prospective WVSU students during On-the-Spot Decision Day.

“We are committed to providing all the information students and families need to make sound college-choice decisions,” said WVSU President Brian O. Hemphill. “On-the-spot decisions are a part of that commitment and our renewed promise to be student-centered in all our programs and offerings at State.”

Applications that are completed will be reviewed by WVSU Admissions staff and decisions will be provided individually throughout the event.  The event is being held on a Saturday to accommodate as many students and family members as possible.

To receive an on-the-spot decision, students must complete a WVSU application for admission and provide ACT or SAT scores, as well as high school or college transcripts, as appropriate. 

“This is a good opportunity for students to get as much done in a short amount of time as they can,” said Katherine McCarthy, vice president for Enrollment and Student Affairs. “They can talk to admissions counselors, receive information on financial aid and have a decision on their application.”

Refreshments will be provided.
