Yellow Ribbon Program for Veterans.

Since 2009, the Yellow Ribbon Program has supported hundreds of Mountaineers who have served their country. WVU remains committed to the Yellow Ribbon Program because we value what veterans bring to campus. It opens the door to our world-class education and secures the dream of obtaining a degree. Those receiving the maximum benefit from the Post 9/11 GI Bill may receive additional funding to cover the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition and fees. For all eligible WVU undergraduate students, West Virginia University has agreed to waive up to 50% of this difference with a direct match from the Veterans Administration under the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Junior Preview Day

Our first audition and portfolio review day on October 29th will also serve as a Junior Preview Day. We invite those currently in their junior year of high school to spend the day with us, and present an audition package or portfolio. These students will receive feedback from the faculty to help them in preparing their audition or portfolio the following year.
