Planning for WV Price Increases Fall 2023

West Virginia dual enrollment has been a budget-saver for our dual enrollment families. Currently, students in any state could take dual enrollment courses for only $25 per credit at almost every one of their 2 and 4 year colleges. We just found out there will be a price increase.

Earlier this month, West Virginia University announced a projected fall price increase from $25 to $75 per credit for out of state students. In-state will still pay $25. Currently and through summer, a 3-credit course costs only $75. Under the new fee structure it will rise to $225, still making the cut to remain on our “Cheapest Dual Enrollment” list, but just barely. What I don’t know as I write this, is if any other WV colleges will follow suit. If you hope to use one of these colleges, write them and tell them how much you appreciate their low cost. Customer feedback matters!!

3 favorite WV colleges used widely in our community:

Blue Ridge Community & Technical College (West Virginia)
Public 2-year college
