Summer Transition Program – Two Paths to Success (choose one)

Path 1: Adventure West Virginia*

The First-Year Pathway program is partnered with Adventure WV to provide a peer-led, adventure-based outdoor experience throughout the state of West Virginia. Each trip lasts between 5-6 days. Trips offer participants diverse opportunities to meet other first year students, learn about themselves, WVU, and West Virginia. Trips are popular and fill quickly.  These programs have a proven track record of successfully preparing incoming students for college.  Students can earn a college credit for the work they do over the summer.  All trips are $95 or less.  Open Enrollment Adventure WV Trip.

Path 2: Early Move-In

The First-Year Pathway Early Move-In program provides students with knowledge and experience about WVU and our resources before classes even begin.  Students will meet with academic advisors, success coaches, and professors, as well as attend sessions on financial aid and WVU’s academic resources.  The Early Move-In will also allow FYP students to navigate the campus and Morgantown roughly 3-4 days before the start of the semester. 

WVU Freshmen move in will take place between August 9 and August 14, but First-Year Pathway students who opt for the Early Move-In component will move in on August 9 or 10. Students should register for a move in time slot on Monday, August 9 or Tuesday, August 10. Access to registration will be open soon; updates on access for registration will be emailed as soon as they are available.
