*This scholarship is fully integrated with the scholarship program at West Virginia University. If a student decides to transfer to WVU after leaving Potomac State College and meets the academic progress standards for this scholarship, the student will be eligible to continue to receive this scholarship at WVU at the current WVU value.  The Potomac Scholarship is not a transferable scholarship.

• SAT scores reflect the sum of the SAT Critical Reading score plus the Math score

• We will use the highest composite ACT/SAT score submitted from one test date. At this time, writing/essay sections are not included as part of the total score being used for evaluation

• Please note that if a student is eligible for more than one scholarship from Potomac State College, the student will be awarded the scholarship with the highest dollar value. To retain scholarships for subsequent years, all scholars are required to maintain specific cumulative grade-point averages and to complete a minimum of credits per year

• Renewal criteria can be found at In-State Scholarship Renewal

• If you qualify for the West Virginia PROMISE Scholarship, in most cases, your Potomac State College scholarship will be awarded in addition to PROMISE
