West Virginia State Hosting Series of Events Encouraging People to “Return to Learn”

INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) will be hosting a series of events in November designed to encourage adult learners to enroll in college and earn a degree.

“Return to Learn” events are set for Saturday, Nov. 1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then again on Tuesday, Nov. 18, from noon to 2 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. All Return to Learn events will take place at the Judge Damon J. Keith Scholars Hall on the WVSU campus in Institute.

At the Return to Learn events, participants will receive assistance in completing admissions and financial aid applications, as well as learn about degree options, the registration process and class offerings. Participants will also learn strategies to balance life, work and college.

“A college degree is often the gateway to a better career and stronger financial standing for individuals and their families,” said Katherine McCarthy, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs at WVSU. “Whether an individual has some college credits or has not enrolled in college previously, Return to Learn events serve as one-stop shops to help show adult learners, with busy lives, they can complete or start a degree.”

At the events, WVSU will have representatives from the Admission’s Office, Cashier’s Office, Career Services, Military Student Services, Registration Office, Student Financial Assistance and Academic Affairs.

During the events, future students will have an opportunity to explore their options or be admitted to WVSU on-the-spot.  Individuals seeking on-the-spot admission should provide ACT or SAT scores, as well as high school or college transcripts, as appropriate. 

Pre-registration is encouraged but not required to attend a Return to Learn event. Register online at wvstateu.edu/ReturnToLearn.
